Hello! Like many let me first say, "I am SO GLAD I found this board!" I've put a little info about our family in my siggy. Both of my difficult child are on medications Focalin XR for both and Seroquel for my youngest at night time. Their medications were recently increased but they've been acting like they aren't on anything at all! We watch them take their medications, the school supposedly watches them take it. They are not sneaky so I don't think they are hiding their medications somehow. I do think many of the issues are from where we are re-introducing their biological grandparents back into their lives. I have told the grandparents we need to work on the behavior issues so I've made it clear the boys daily functioning is more of a priority than visits with them. At home, DS2 is funny, lively (not wired), interacts with his brother, loves spending time with me and husband (loves snuggle time), and has minimal issues. He also engages well with adults in our personal life. At school he shuts down (he is extremely shy) and depending on his mood he may or may not do any schoolwork. He is repeating kindergarten this year because nobdoy taught him the basics (we've been a family since Oct 05). He still can't write all of his letters, hardly any numbers but he loves school and he is a smart kid. He has an IEP and is in behavioral class 1/2 day. We were sent a note today saying he has been digressing the past two weeks (they spent several days with their maternal grandparents a few weeks ago) and they now feel he needs to be in the behavioral class all day. We have an IEP meeting scheduled for 4/23. I want to do what is best for my son. Do you think all day with the behavioral specialist is best? I know he is the youngest in the her class and there are about 10 other older kids as well. His behavioral teacher is wonderful and she said he is like everyone's baby brother. Which also makes me wonder...is he doing this to get the extra attention from the older students? Wow...what a great way to introduce myself. I'll stop babbling now... Edited: I mistyped their medications. I put EFFEXOR XR instead of Focalin XR.
