I have a child witih Global development delay with ADD/ADHD. I have been fighting with them since October to get his IEP. Good News is He will have one at the end of March. Now I have also noticed there are alot writing that is not getting completed. When I asked his teacher why I was so kindly told that my child is disruptive to the class when they try to get him to write so they let him do whatever. Any suggestions on how to handle an education system that is completely failing my child???

Quoting Kinga:

Hi, I have a 4 1/2 year old with similar traits. I'm just wondering what you do at home when your child gets disruptive, or does he? I have a really hard time redirecting mine so that's why I'm asking. But if your son gets a little out of hand and you have strategies that work at home, maybe you could share those with the school, although it sounds like they're not really "equipped" to help. - Thank you, Kinga


 



I have had to unfortuneately put my son on Ritalin. He is on 2.5 mg 3x a day and It curbs him and the violent tendencies. I also have in place extremely strict routines for all 4 of my kids. My routines are so strict that my husband can look at his watch 2 hours away and know exactly what's happening. He has been and still has his moments but the routine works for him. And the problem is they are not making him follow any routines at school. like for ex. When the other kids are doing their letters and he doesn't want to they let him do whatever instead of getting to sit down in a chair like everyone else.

Teachers can't/won't take the time that is needed for kids with these types of delays in learning. You have to be in their face all the time and your child needs to know that you and his teachers are on the same page. He needs to know that you are very involved in his education and that is what matters to you and it should matter to him. I have kept my 13 year old son in IEP because that is what is right for him but the teachers want me to take him out because it lowers their test curve. WHATEVER my son will get what he needs to help him with his education. His teachers somedays hate me but for the most part they are thankful I am so involved in his education. And that is not easy living in the country working full time having a husband who works two hours away and raising another Delayed learner who is 3 and already in IEP. The county school board knows me very well. Keep at it it is what is right for your child.
