Got a problem.
My son is 10 yrs old. He's been on Adderall since 3rd grade. He's done well. Grades and behavior improved.
Anyway, thats not the problem. When we first started all this because of failing and bad behavior, we asked the schhol to do an evaluation. They agreed, but we never heard back from them. Finally, we got him diagnosed by a psychiatrist. Now we see his regular pediatrician for meds and stuff.
Now he's in a better school(I think) and I want to see if they will do an evaluation. It seems that it would be easier to get the school to provide the extra resources if the school system said that he had a problem. He has started to have a few behavior problems at this new school. He swears that its because some boy keeps talking to him and the teacher won't do anything because she hasn't caught the other boy. Well, Erik CANNOT igore him, so he tries to deal with the situation himself and gets caught. Incidentally, instead of the old fashioned seats, this school has the square kind that that you put together like one big table. This is distracting to him, but on the other hand, I don't want him to be isolated or put by himself. On top of all this, he now has 2 teachers, one teaches half the day and the other the other half. His primary teacher is 7 mos pregnant and the other teacher is 4 weeks postpartum. So he's getting a lot of subs.
Has anyone had an evaluation by the school? Would he have to stop his meds long enough for them to do one? Also, I never received anything from any Dr to give to the school. He was just put on meds. Should I have gotten something? Has anyone else had this problem?
Sorry, I'll stop now. Thanks for any tips!
