My 61/2 year old has an IEP in place at his school. He is very capable of doing the work, however has trouble focusing long enough to complete his work. He didn't have behavior issues before, but now he is. He is even refusing to complete his work in the principal's office, he just sits there and make noises. He was diagnoised with Mild ADHD, his father and my self do not want to medicate him. Im just finding it very difficult to figure out why he gets emotional in class and refuses to do the work even when offered help/redirection. He is saying the work is too hard and he can't focus. But the work is broken up and his teacher even gives him a guide sometimes. He's interrupting class and making car like sounds instead of completing the work. I am fustrated that the systems I've put in place are not working and feel like we're starting all over.
