My son is 9. He was kicked out of daycare when he was 5. Suspended every yr several times a yr for his violence. His diagnosis. . . wow where do I start. Possible brain damage due to hypoxia at birth, specific learning disorders, ADHD, Sensory Integration Disorder (SID), ODD, severe migraines, and the school put an educational diagnosis of autism on him, oh forgot the behavioral problems they diagnosed him with before. He was institutionalized for 2 weeks this summer for sending a teacher to the emergency room and hurt 2 others in the process. They had him on suicide watch the first week because of the horrible stuff he was saying. After he came home they had him on Risperdal and Focalin. The behaviors at home were worse. The depression was worse (he does not have a diagnosis for that). The talk of suicide and saying he should live here with me and his baby sister because of fear that he will hurt us. Of course my response was the only place he should be is where he is loved and that is with me. This yr he has been suspended 3 times sent his teacher to the Emergency room again. Got moved to a modified day where he only went to school 3 hrs a day. He has been urinating and soiling the floors. I have to check his room daily for wet spots or worse. I dont invite my friends over anymore. I told my husband that when I wake up it seems as if Im battling just to keep sanity. Two weeks ago the school called social services on accusing my husband and I of abusing him. I told them what happened. My son was in a foul mood the day before and My husband told him to pick up sticks out of the yard for a punishment for being so rude. My son attacked my husband in the kitchen. Well My husband tried to restrain him but trying to hold down a child that is. . . being savage is hard to do and he got bruises. The same day the school even told me they had to have 3 teachers restrain him in the hallway. Needless to say the case was dropped. I cant work anymore. Constant phone calls from the school has cause many problems. I am afraid I cant help him. I am also afraid for my 16 mo old daughter.
