I feel like my child is being treated unfairly by his 2nd grade teacher what more can I do? I have made it clear to the principal and teacher that I'm not happy with the situation. I have asked for a classroom change, sat in class with my son and I am at a point where I just have to tell him to grin and bare it. He is ADHD and has had no efforts by the teacher to facilitate his needs. It is to a point where she has been embarrassing him in front of other students in the classroom and although I complained It has currently had no action taken. Frankly I'm tired of him crying everyday because of her persistent bullying. Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you.
If your child doesn't have a 504 or IEP plan, I would request that the school evaluate him, if you suspect his disability is interfering with his ability to learn. Children with ADHD often act impulsively because of their disability, and this can lead to school disciplinary action. It is always better to avoid this issue by proactively addressing the situation, often with a functional behavioral assessment and a positive behavior plan. Other children with ADHD are disciplined by teachers for their lack of attention in class or constant fidgeting. It is important that teachers understand that these behaviors are a result of a disability, and not simply bad behavior.
Once your child's special education needs are addressed, you could consider filing a complaint against the teacher with the Department of Education.
