My daughter diagnosed w/ Aspergers & ADHD(I don't agree with the ADHD). She has an IEP, assistant in her classroom& accomodations; But......
She has been in three different schools, two of which due to incompetance on the part of the teachers and administration failed my child miserably! They didn't recognize that she had a learning development challenge, nor did they try to help me, to help my daughter.
She was either neglected, misunderstood or abused which left her depressed and reverted by two grade levels, so I snatch her out of the first two schools and homeschooled her until I could find the proper school to suit her needs compassionatesly!
She has improved remarkably due to my dilligence in homeschooling and seeking the proper school environment that matches her needs, my approval and our family values.
However, The discipline policy and the asst. leaves much to be desired. My daughter is naturally social, kind, compassionate and thoughtful. However, she can make impulsive decisions.( we all do!) Her impulsive behavior is supposed to be monitored and be modified by the social worker. Yet, she gets these petty notes sent home repeatedly that she has behaved impulsively. None of the special services staff are a specialists in Autism and I am becoming frustrated at getting all of these notes, when it's in the norm for her. I do speak to her daily about proper decorum and have spoken to the staff to NO avail. What should I do?
