How can I get my school to give my son help for ADHD?
My son is 5 years old and was Diagonosed with ADHD. The school he attends doesn't offer any help to him to keep him on task. They told me they could get him help IF I had some sort of medical insurance which I didn't. I have been reading and from what I can tell my son is entitled to any services to help him succed in school. They don't offer anything. They haven't tried to verify that he is ADHD or anything. The only help they offer him is speech therapy. I do know they offer programs for kids with my sons disorder, but why do they need medical insurance. I thought that was suppose to be supplied by the schools to help the children. Am I missing something. I do believe they are not compling with the No Child Left Behind Act. I am contacting an advocate to help me with this, but is there something else I can do. He is being held back due to their lack of helping him properly.
