I was wondering if there is such a thing as a school for children who have behavioral issues but not so severe that it needs to be through a hospital. difficult child is getting better as he gets older. He has done well without medications this summer and to be honest the only reason why he is starting back on medications is because he cannot function at school. He can't sit still for hours and just learn. husband is very bitter about having to drug him just because the mainstream learning does not work for our children. I am finding so many kids that are not so severe that they need serious intervention but are cannot handle the way most schools are. IEP's are just not quite enough for them but they need something. I can't homeschool with my job and difficult child would just not respect that I would be his teacher. Are these private schools or do they have schools for kids like this and I just don't know about them. I hate medicating him because he does not fit the "sit down and be quiet" attitude that schools have. Do they have these?
