Very Frustrated and looking for advice
November 11, 2011 at 1:54 PM

I have an 11 year old son with bipolar and aspbergers and have difficulties with him in school resulting in violent outbursts. last week i had a hard time getting him to go in and the school came out and restrained him which caused an outburst well ended up taking hi m to hospital to be assesed for szuicide comment. now he hasbeen put in a little hallway off a classroom by himself all day with just a teachers aide. he doesnt get lunch with his peers or any specials like music library pe or recess with his peers to me it doesnt sound appropiate nor does his counselor believe so either but they think they can do whatever they please

    If he is prone to violent outbursts they have him isolated for the safety of the other students.

    I would contact the school's superintendent and outline his issues along with the poor job the school is doing. Now's the time you have to be 100% pro active. Make them change. Be at the school. Threaten to transfer him to a different District. Which you actually may have to do. Or maybe Homeschool.  I went through similar things with a bitch oh I mean teacher from hell.

    Does your child have an IEP?  If he does, you'll know what I'm talking about.  My suggestion is to pull it out and re-read it....if DS is prone to outbursts, then an action should be in place on what to do to handle it.  Are they following it?  If not, take it to the counselor, the prinicipal, and even the superintendent if need be.  Schools are suppose to follow those plans.  Hope things work out for you.
