If anyone can offer advice to dealing with a school system that is not meeting my sons needs. He was diagnosed with ADD 3 months ago. They were helpful last year during all of the testing but he is not eligible for special ed because he did very well on the tests. Now that I need them to accomadate some of his needs they want me to put him on medication. He is not a typical ADD child which leads me to look into other causes of his inattention. I am activly persuing other options outside of the school (diet, vitamins, allergies...and the school is breathing down my throught to medicate him. They are shutting me out because I am persuing other options and I am totally frustrated with thier repeated efforts to treat me like I am dening him something he needs. He is 6 years old. He is not hyperactive in any way he is not disrupting anyone he needs more attention at school and they refuse to give it to him because he does not qualify for special ed.
Thanks for any help anyone can give!
