After difficult child had his meltdown at school this morning, the school guidance counselor suggested that an FBA was in order. I have already requested a full evaluation but originally they didn't think that difficult child needed an FBA. So what if difficult child is classified as Emotionally Disturbed (or is it Disabled)? What would that mean? Would he be put in Special Education classes or taken out for additional behavioral help? difficult child is very bright, would being labeled ED affect his education? IOW, would they continue to teach him at grade level? I know I shouldn't worry about the label, but ED just sounds so hopeless. Gee, I could've sworn today was a Monday!
