I’m a mother that has a 7 year old who has been through many different stages of this journey with an ADHD child. He has had an IEP since kindergarten, changed to multiple different schools, environments and at this point residential care. This is never where I though my we’d be.
BUT I will say that even though I was a mother stood against what I thought was giving up up on him and the thought of residential care baffled my mind, he’s made tremendous progress behaviorally, emotionally and is for the first time getting educated while learning self regulation with the support of residential care.
We had to go completely out of our comfort and expertise to make a huge decision like this but only with the progress I have seen can I vouch that though this is a sacrifice it’s also an investment long term.
I live in CA where the resources are limited and have been through so many cycles of placement but for any parent that feels there is no hope, there are programs out there that can help. My son was 2 hours away which we thought was the absolute end to all, but still
Wasn’t receiving the school component so he is now in TX at a facility that invests in him every step of the way. Now it’s not for all, but the progress now shows me otherwise. If you have any questions or think there is no answers please reach out.
Thank you for sharing your story! I’ll pray for continued improvement in TX and healing for you all. 😊
🙏🏼 thank you
