Q:

I have an appeals hearing with the PG County Board of Education soon.  Any advice? Thanks!

My 12yr old who has a recent diagnosis of ADHD  was expelled for kicking a teacher who pushed her on the ground.

What the Expert Says:

Get the copy of the incident report from the principal's office, read it, discuss it with your child, and also discuss it with the physician who made the ADD diagnosis.  Many children have a "dual" diagnosis such as "ODD" or oppositional defiant behavior which may be included in her defense.Wayne Yankus, MD, FAAP

If the child is receiving IEP services, then they are required to hold a manisfestation meeting as part of the Code of Maryland Regulations. It the child is not receiving IEP services, make sure you get as much documentation as you can from the diagnosing physician as well as the referring teacher. Is there a pattern of behavior? Has this patter of behavior been documented? Were the teacher's actions dealt with properly? If you can prove (by witness or otherwise) that the teacher pushed the student, then you will have a case against the teacher as well as the school for negligance (sp).
