She will not get up for school she constantly does what she wants and does what she wants. She steals and lies. Is angry and causes fights at school and home. She is a nightmare 24/7. I cry and feel hopeless. I cannot get her to do anything I ask and she threatens and hits people all the time. It is killing me and has caused me health issues.

Can you request another evaluation? This sounds like a kids who really needs some help. A good behavioral therapist can help you find ways to motivate her to behave. Does setting small short term goals with a specific reward help at all? Another option is to consider a long term residential psychiatric placement. I know that sounds harsh and unkind but some kids can really improve in a very regimented setting.

We have tried tons of meds therapy and no one will help her at school. She doesn't qualify for an iep and they will not do a 504. She has decided that no one can tell her what to do. She will steal stuff from school and actually back talk the teachers. She goes wherever she wants in the school. We have also done family therapy. She gets worse the more we try. She also has compulsive behavior of having to get into everything and destroying stuff/house.

What have you tried so far to modify her behavior? Does she get any services at school?
