Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
Given the poor treatment that your son has received, I suggest that you take him to a University Teaching Hospital-Department of Psychiatry for a thorough evaluation with testing. There are also facilities that use behavioral means to deal with ADHD. I do not believe that the school is alllowed to refuse an IEP as he is a special needs child based upon behavior which has nothing to do with intellligence (IQ), but they do so to save money. I suggest you contact the school board and threaten legal action or even the State Department of Education. You can also get assistance from NAMI at http://www.nami.org/ who can provide guidance and direction. I am sorry he has received such shabby treatment
