ADHD at School
Discipline Review Meeting,what should I expect?
A district discipline review meeting is scheduled for my third grade grandson. He is ADHD and taking Metadate and Intuniv. His doctor also thinks he is ODD(not diagnosed). He’s G/T and honor roll, has had individual and family counseling for 2 years. The ODD is an issue at school. He has been suspended twice this year for defiance, kicking over chairs/desks and running out of classrooms. I’ve also had to pick him up early at least 2 or 3 times. He is currently suspended for throwing a major tantrum, kicking and throwing objects to the extent that the teacher and other students evacuated the classroom to ensure their safety. Prior to this event, he was scheduled to be sent to AEP for 45 days unless behavior improved within 3 weeks. The principal has pics of the classroom after the event. Nothing was broken but it looks really bad. He’s had one meeting with the districts behavioral specialist. He is on tier 3 of an IEP. I requested a psych consult before the tantrum. What should I expect at the meeting?
