It is soo hard having a special needs child in a public school

Wednesday, February 06, 2013

Here in TJ they suggested finding a school in the states for her special needs ie one on one teacher they are tired of her problems and I'm gonna have to paint the teachers desk cause she drew on it with Majic marker. Ugh some days her ADHD problems make me feel like such a bad mom. They say she'll have more opportunities for success. They don't mention how we might not have enough money each month driving from Mexico to us each day but its worth a shot just stressed out ready to pull my hair

    Thanks guys I found a Christian homeschooling group that does field trips ect and support groups for $20 a year with curriculum help so that plus possibly a private tutor can help until a yr or two from now will also try the OT therapy too and put her in ballet she responds well to that and science

    I agree with purplesdcow. I also teach kids with a variety of special needs, including autism. There are a variety of things that should be tried. Good luck to you!

    I teach children with autism and am so sorry to hear of the trouble you are having with your school. I don't know the law in TJ but here in Georgia, my county would find a class that would help your child. There are many therapies available for ADHD that work. I wish you the best.

    So sorry to hear of your struggles. Our church started a school for Special needs children, and it is wonderful to see the progress they make in the right environment. It is called Hidden Treasure christian School, and is in Greenville SC. It isn't always possible to move house, but if you ever had the chance, a school like this would be the answer. They are equipped to handle the children's many needs, and have a love for them.

    I'm sure you have, but have you looked into dietary changes? I believe that Dr. Fuhrman's Eat to Live with some modifications for children could have some merit here. Especially with removal of all processed food and all sweeteners. Just a thought.

    Our oldest son had meningitis at 3 months of age, went to PT
and OT for years and was taught in a special classroom from
age 2 through kindergarten. We tried public school but then
sent him to the school for the deaf from age 8 to age 19.
The school was 65 miles away and he was in a dorm all
week and come home for the weekends. It wasn't easy
but it was the best thing for him. Keep looking to find a
school that fits her needs. HUGS!
