Okay I will try and make this a short as possible. For the past two years, the school will call and say they are having behavior problems with my ds. But when we start pushing and questioning what has been really happening, they back off. Well finally this year, his 2nd grade teacher has finally stated she feels he needs testing. I spoke with the principle about setting up testing. He told me that AD is not a learning disability. WHICH I COMPLETLY DO NOT AGREE TOO! He stated that the testing the school provides will not test for this. I still pushed having my ds tested through the school. I told the principle that maybe he appears to have and AD problem, when there is really an underlying learning disability. My husband cousin is a teacher in our state. She has been trying to help us become informed as much as she can. She told us about the IDEA, plan that the school has to follow after we put in writing that we want our ds tested. It was also recommended to us that we needed to have the principle and teacher put in writing that they felt he needed tested. The principle is refusing to back up what he told me on the phone today and put in writing. I feel that he just doesn't want the school to have to pay for the testing. So my questions are: 1. Does AD/HD fall into the category of a learning disability? or does it go by state to state (we live in OHIo) 2. Does the testing through the I.D.E.A cover AD? Please help, as my husband and I are having a hard time finding these answers. The school doesn't want to offer anything up, again.
