Need advise on how to get my son help in school.
My son is going to be 13 in Feb, he was diagnosed with ADD ADHD when he was 7, he’s been on medication for it since he was 7. Last year when he started middle school was when he really started to struggle in school and this year is even worst. The school is not giving me much help and the school has never done any kind of evaluation for my son. I was told by a friend to get an IEP, through the school. I just don’t understand why the schools he has been to before has not done this before. Plus I’m just learning I can disability for him also. I have been paying for all of his therapy, psychiatrist appointments doctor appointments and medicines out of my pocket with very little help through my insurance. What process do I need to go through to get help?
