And issues are arising. He is very sensitive,shy,sweet,yet he can be very offset, angry, agitated. He needs special attention due to his severe eczema, food allergies, and asthma.

Best of luck to you both. Lots of love sent your way. I know it is difficult. You can do it! And if you don't like the way the school is handling matters, please speak up on behalf of your son.

That would isolate him NOT in a very positive way. I am disappointing in their reaction of keeping him at a separate desk away from all the other children. That will segregate him in so many ways, and the children will see he is different. Maybe looking into a different school system and structure can and will help him. He clearly needs more attention from teachers, and perhaps a different style learning environment will help him better engage. I have a girlfriend who has 3 children with life threatening allergies also. I have seen and heard what she has to deal with.

Yes, 5th day of school he is on a "functional behavior assessment" and also seperated at a single desk, away from the other classmates. They said their trying to teach him boundaries. He has life threatening food allergies,and its just a never ending back n forth battle with his food diet, routine, schedule, paperwork,etc.

Many kids are in the same predicament. Some parents choose to find a specialty school, like a Montessori, or other private schools to accommodate their children. Have you talked with his teachers, principal, and nursing staff to discuss your concerns? How are they helping?
