I googled hitting teachers and got this. Where to begin? My 5 year old has sensory intergration problems, he was a great therapuetic preschool program that really worked wonders for him. He was put in a general ed class for K and despit having a BIP and an IEP that wasn't being followed he was suspended (yes I know I have a lawsuit for many reasons at this point, there are details I am leaving out for now that even more so shows I could sue). He was suspended for kicking his teacher and then he realized being bad at school he could get sensory input he seeks and get sent home with mom. So everyday he went to school his behavior got worse and he started saying he was bad and that's why he has a 1 on 1 aide. His 1 on 1 is because he is a flight risk and has trouble staying on task, he has had one since he was 3 on his IEP. I should also mention he hasn't had Occupational Therapist (OT) since he left his preschool in August. I am getting him Occupational Therapist (OT) out of school starting next week, I should have done it a long time ago but that's how good his preschool was. I almost thought he was normal for a while. Uhh I hate the word normal but I can't think of another one to use. Now he is in a private program payed for by the district and they are trained to restrain and use crisis intervention. I am still unsure how I feel about it but they don't use restrain as punishment but as a way of making sure everyone stays safe. My aunt works with adults in a residental setting and does something similar with her residents. He receives social and behavioral councling through this agency as well. His first day was today and he was restrained already for kicking, punching and spitting. He doesn't really act aggressive at home or when we are out socializing unless other boys are wrestling, then he joins and will take it too far, it's like he can't turn it off or something. He is defiently a fight or flight kid. I can see he needs Occupational Therapist (OT) really bad, he's more anxious lately but more jumpy at the same time. I am also considering some outside of school therapy, the program suggests if you can afford it or have the insurance to go for it. I just am afraid of them slapping too many labels on him at a young age. Will it be ok? I am so scared at this point.
