Ok, so recently some of you had told me about the 504 plan because my son,10 yrs old, 4th grade, has ADHD and is NOT doing well in school..First of all I want to thank everyone for helping me out with this.
Now my question is this....My son is s normal 10 yr old who loves to play video games and on the computer and pick on his sisters.... The counselor, after speaking with myself, my boyfriend and my sons teacher that we get him re-tested for a learning disability. I think I am ok with that but I dont want my son to feel any less than he already does. He has a hard enough time socializing because he gets angry so easy. He states" I dont have ANY friends" if the school were to put him into a special ed class Im afraid that he will feel even worse than now. I know that it would be best for him, but my concerns are also for his feelings as well.. How so we as parents know that we are making the right choice?Should I have him tested again? He was tested 3 years ago in a very small community and was right on the borderline. The teachers reached out to him and kept him in a regular class.
What should I do? And how should I talk to him about it?
