Talk with school board your childs needs are not being met they need to that. Look for new doctors call your insurance company they will help you find doctors that will meet your sons needs. Explain the situation to them I dont mean to sound rude but please speak up for your son loudly because if you dont force the issue then your son wont get the help he needs and desirves.
