My son seems to have difficulty behaving on the bus.

If he has a 504 plan he can, I would ask for an evaluation, and go from there. I would bring his issues to the attention of the Principle, see if he/she can help.

Heidi, have you asked about getting him a 504 plan in place yet? It never hurts to get one started, especially as he gets older and might need some accommodations.

I have my son on a 504 plan.. I love it and so does my son.. Last year my poor son was suspended more than he attended school. I wrote a letter to the principle, school counselor requesting a meeting to put my son on a 504 plan. I wrote down all the things my child needs to help him from being able to walk out of class to a quiet place, to listening to his IPOD... I had to be my childs voice.. This years an amazing difference he is in honor classes and hasn't been suspended one. (keeping my fingers crossed)
When everyone around you say's just give up, hope whispers keep going... Hope is faith holding out its hand in the dark...
