At the end of last school year my son's school counselor came to me so excited saying that she my have found what my son has. It was aspergers. I was so excited to finally have something to hold on to that could potentially help him. I have sense been trying to get my son in to even be seen. I just don't know what to do. Our family doctor says that he cannot do anything and the insurance I have for the kids is through the state and they don't seem to care about mental illnesses. We are just having a very hard time. He just started middle school and is in an IEP but it does not help him. They say I need a diagnosis to get him into a special class for kids with aspergers and autism. And just today he was suspended because he got so upset and frustrated about school that he ran out of class and stayed out on the lawn. I told me that he hated it there and that he did not want to come back. He has always loved school. His elementary school did so great helping him. But now that he is in a new school, that does not seem to understand that he does not think like everyone else, he hates it. I really need help figuring out what to do next. I am a single mother with 3 kids to take care of and I just can't seem to get any where. Help!
