Has anyone had success with either doing this, or were you a child with ADHD or OCD that did this? I don't want him to be pulled away from the problem; that is not my purpose. But he gets into fights every day, is very sleepy, very depressed. The school is not the problem. It is very helpful...his teacher and principal are great! They have told me, though, that they do not have the funding to give him an aide and that they have no other options. I even had to keep him out of school the entire month of December because of his violent tendencies, per the school's request. (I think the principal was backed into a corner about this.) A letter was sent home that said upon the third suspension or prior, if deemed necessary, the District Attorney would be contacted and I would be held responsible for my son's behavior. I live in Alabama. I don't know if this is an Alabama thing....has anyone heard of this? He has already been suspended twice. I am terrified!I am not willing to try him on every medication under the son till we find one; He is currently on Straterra and not doing well. I dont know how that could possibly be good for him. They have very good curriculums out there. My husband was homeschooled and he is a genius!! Really not wanting to debate the merits of homeschooling here, please, just want to know if anyone has had any experience, good or bad, with it.
