So my 9 year old twins have ADHD and ODD. They were adopted through foster care and have developmental delays as well. We’ve had them for 6 years.
I’ve just contacted the school principal about an IEP meeting. I haven’t heard from teachers on an almost daily basis as I have in years past, so I thought they were doing better. Turns out, they are still acting out but the teachers don’t bother me with it unless they have a really bad day. I don’t think the teachers should have to deal with that. They get consequences, but I’m just not sure they are enough, if that makes sense. I think what may work on the other kids just doesn’t have an effect on them. I think they need less chances/firmer boundaries bc they test and push the boundaries constantly.
So all of that to ask if anyone has experience with this and any suggestions of what may be helpful to implement in the behavior plan that I hope will be in place for next school year.
