School Psychologist discussion confusion
The more I think about my discussion with the school psychologist I am not sure what I think. My 8 yr old son has ADHD, Sensory, Anxiety and recently dx from psychiatrist, aspergers. He has been having aggressive behavior at school so they recommended the school psychologist observe him, which he was perfect those days. I provided her copies of the reports from our neuropsychologist, developments pediatrician, and OTs. The neruo and developmental was 4 yrs ago. They did not see any characteristics for autism at the time. But these behaviors only started about a year ago. She had to point this out about the drs even though I told her they were from 4 years ago. We have a meeting on Dec 3rd to discuss a behavior intervention plan. SO HERE IS MY QUESTION - if I want to push the fact my son has characteristics of autism what additional services could he receive from the school? Right now he has OT, an IEP, and accommodations. I am not begging for this dx but I do want all the help I can get for my son. Thanks for your help.
