I write this with a heavy heart. My son is in 3rd grade and has ADD, SPD, social anxiety and speech issues. Change is hard for him and this year has been very difficult. After much thought and noticing he was not getting better we decided to medicate. We tried many meds over the summer and then started an ADD med right before school. He soon refused to take any more of the meds and we have had 4 behavior write ups, he had to be picked up from school today because he was throwing chairs, pencils and paper. He has become a safety issue for the other children. The aggressive behavior started this summer and I just don't know what to do. I have an apt with dr tomorrow. How do you get a child to take meds if they dont want to? Please help, what do I do if he gets kicked out of school?
