you might try contacting your local school board and talk to someone in the the exceptional student departments and explain thae situation to them maybe they can expediate the screening process for the evaluations that your child needs. best of luck to you. my grand child has many of theses same learning problems she is in the exceptional student program she is in specail classes in her school she was screened therough the school . i understand your frustrations you must be insistant with the schools and contact the social worker at the school if you get no where callt he school board or go there and talk with a supoervisor as a taxpayer you have the right there is a program called no child left behind insist on it for your child this is for specail needs kids and a child with learning problems fall in that catagory please let me know how you come out
To live my life to its fullest and to put all my trust in God.

Thanks For Your Opinion And I Want To Let U Know That I Already Contact The School Board And The School And Hopefully By Next Week They Will Have A Meating Where They Are Going To Decide If He Need Special Education. Is Frustrated But I Dont Have The Heart To Give Up Because I Love Him Like My Son..... But Thanks For Your Help. Your Message Help Me And Gave Me Support
Keep calling the school, keep bugging them. That is the only way you are going to get them to do anything. My daughter has some learning disabilities, and I am in her class all the time. I check over her work she brings home and if I find something that she is having trouble with, or that she couldn't do..I take it back to school and ask them what they are going to do to help her learn this. You HAVE to keep on them all the time.
Thanks For All The Message That Everyone Send And I Am I Will Still Going To Keep Calling The School And Going To The School. I Start Reading And Getting Info On The Computer And I Really Think That He Have Add Convine With Odd . That Will Be Posible ... Please Help Me
Have you tried a neuropsychologist? One that specializes in learning disorders? you might talk to your doctor about it. The best way to get him help in the school is to have him diagnosed by a doctor. That will help you know where to turn next.
Yeah I Got A Evaluation Thru A Psycology And We Have Another Appt To Ck Him Good The Specialist Think That He Have Some Of Odd And Add . I Really Need To Help Him And Find Out What He Really Have So Then I Know How To Treat Him Because I Dont Want To Treat Him The Wrong Way Either.... He Is The Best Think God Put In My Live Because He Is The Son That I Never Had... He Is Really Sweet But When He Get Anger He Doest Think .... And I Think That Affect Him At School

He Is A Difficult Kids Sometimes I Ask My Self And I Ask God What I Am Doing Wrong That He Dont Change. That Little Kids Is Like A Goal That I Have To Proof Me And Proof Alot A People That I Can Make Him Change And Be A Good Person And Be Somebody In Live.... I Dont Know If I Am Wrong To Think Like That But That Is The Way I Think .... Melylove
Good for you!! Please don't take any of this personal. If he does have ADD, there are great meds and diets to help with this. You might do some research on the diet part now, and that may even help him. I know that low fat milk, and margerine are BAD for kids with ADD. I went to a great conference once with a leading doctor in the field of ADD. He needs to have whole milk, and REAL butter. it is important for him to get Vitamins A and D naturally. And these are only in WHOLE milk naturally.
I Did't Know That About The Diet That The Kids With Add Or Odd Should Follow Because Like I Sd This Is All New For Me. But Because I Love Him So Much I Really Want To Really Learn Everything About It ... I Want To Really Sd Thanks For Everyone That Are Been Hand By Hand With Me With All The Support.. Because All The Messages That Everyone Send Me Helps Me To Help Him ... Thanks To Everyone And Will Let You Know What Happend On March 25th That Is The Next Appt With The Psycology ....
Oh And Also I Want To Ask Is Normal That The Kids Turn So Agresive , When Friday I Spank Him Because He Did;t Something Wrong He Hit With His Feet And Let Me A Black And Blue Beleive That Hurt Me More Because Of The Point That He Disrespect Me And Not For The Big Hit ... Please Let Me Know What I Suppose To Do In This Situation ... Thanks
Hello Everyone I Have Good News The School Set Up A Meating So They Are Going To Decide If He Is Going To Ese Or Not , Which I Have Faith That He Will Be In Ese And He Will Get Better Grades. I Am So Happy For Everything Since Like I Am Heating To The Wright Direction .... Thanks Everyone For The Support That You All Are Giving Me.... Thanks Melylove
I went to a great conference once with a leading doctor in the field of ADD. He needs to have whole milk, and REAL butter.
I've got to interject here that this is one physician's point-of-view and is not accepted practice in the field. Most people, at this time, recommend getting vitamins A & D from other natural sources, not from saturated fats. There is a growing body of professionals who believe we need more polyunsaturated fats and Omega 3 oils in our diets. But, you don't hear many suggesting more animal fats.
I am a cynic, it is true, but I'd be willing to bet that this doctor has a book to sell.
Momof3mjt, I'm disagreeing with this doctor, not with you. I wholeheartedly support your encouragement of Melylove that a diagnosis of ADD isn't the worst that can happen. There are treatments available today.
I was not implying that Milk and Butter is ALL he needs. But if ADD kids are going to have milk and butter, it should be real butter and whole milk. Margarine is full of garbage our systems don't need and can't really tolerate. Low-fat milk has had the vitamins D and A separated from it in taking out the fat, and has to be put back into it. Whole milk has these vitamins naturally without human help.
I am not offended by any means, everyone is entitled to their opinion, I am just making sure you didn't misunderstand me.
