Suspensions: ADHD, ODD, GIFTED, BUT NO IEP

Reba:  I have a patient who is AIG, ADHD and ODD. The school wants to suspend her quite often. She does not have an IEP in place. I suggested to the parent that her child needs an IEP along with a BIP. The school has put an accommodation in place for her to go to a room to calm down. If this does not work they call the parent to pick her up immediately. I told the parent that this could be taken away just like it was given.

Since the child is still being sent home, this indicates that what is being done is not working. The parent should request special ed testing in writing. The state parent training & information project can tell them about the state rules on what the school must do regarding such requests. http://www.parentcenterhub.org/find-your-center/

In Nebraska, Rule 51 speaks to the special education needs for children in the public & private school systems. No doubt other States have similar laws. In addition, neuropsychological testing might help to define the problem & point in the direction of solutions better than suspension.
