I have known several parents with special needs children. Some severe, some mild. It is my opinion that, on a whole, the Union County School system is ill equipt to handle the growing problem of children with diagnosed issues. School officials have claimed to be prepared to deal with this issue, however, the also seem to want to "lable" a child with their own diagnosis. The child might have been diagnoses elsewhere, with (god forbid) experts, but if the school says "they just have ADD or ADHD", then by all means, let us ignore this Medical Experts Diagnosis. All a diagnosis is to this system is an inconvenience. This has just been my observation. My dealing with this school system has been at a minimum, but my family lends a sympathetic ear to others.

They want to push drugs on my kid...lol I guess that fixes the issue on their end. Put the kid in a coma like state...problem solved. They really have no clue. Been dealing with it for years now as the kid falls more and more behind. I would love to teach the child at home but really don't know how. Then again I am not being paid to do that job. I teach what I can out of love but could really use some help from the school which I asked for over the past couple of years. Anyway good luck at school and with all the dumb*ss trolls that will post on this thread

Fight. Fight for your child. Get an advocate if you have to, but do not give up. There are organizations that facilitate parents with special needs kids to help them with school systems that are backwards, like UCCSD.

There are organizations that will help you get started with homeschooling, if you want that. Personaly, i believe that you should not have to homeschool a child, but if the system will not help, then you may have to.

Parents of children that are not being properly serviced should join forces and confront, not the school, but the school board. Get it in the news, put a fire under them. If they have to cut a sports program to finance a childs education, then so be it. Too many schools put sports ahead of education, AND THAT IS WRONG. I once lived in an area where the school did not facilitate any sports. If the parents wanted sports, they had to pay for the privilege. Yes, the pooer child may not have gotten to play a game, but he/she got an education. And that ladted a lifetime.

Man, trolls starting about things, and all you did was make a mistake thinking that it posted twice.

Anyways! A good friend of mine, her child has Aspergers, which a type of Autism, and the school just doesn't know how to handle him. I've seen this with quite a few other children, too. I don't honestly think Union County can handle their "normal" students, much less the special needs students.:/

Would love to know why you would insult someone for stating that a comment only posted once. How was that an "troll" comment? I think you are the troll.

I have a special needs child and I have had to fight for every single service like my life depended on it. The State will not recognize a Dr.'s diagnosis they have there own tests which are a joke. Middle school was the worst 3 years, High School was better. But we had to take our child off of diploma track because he was failing the classes that they kept putting our child in. So luckily we were able to send our child to a bigger school district and he has made huge strides. We are so pleased with the programs they we have available to us, even the gym class is modified for his ability. We put him back on diploma track and God willing will graduate like all his classmates. So my advice if you can drive your child to a bigger district save your self the frustration and RUN. And if you cannot change schools I pray that you are able to get your child what they need.

Liberty Elementary is Ok. The middle school is a law suit waiting to happen. Some one could make major money on that one!! It is not the special education teachers fault is more like administration. I don't think there is any help until people change!!!!! The sad thing is the kids might as well go to a babysitters house rather than go to school. The high school has an really good program too. The problem is teachers and administrators do not inderstand unless unless they are openminded, patient, and experience in dealing with special needs. That is majority of the problem.

Just for references sake, if the school cannot provide our special needs kids with an education...if they are unable or ill equipped, they, by law, must provide tuition & transportation to a school that can. Not that I have had any luck either way since they say they will do it but as soon as we leave, it's back to the same bs. Insource has an advocate for our county. They help, but our district is real good at making sure insource can't get to the iep meetings. It's a constant fight over what should just be done for the good of the children.

Why is everything always a fight with this school system? I have been waiting three years to find out why my kid was sent home with an F on his final report card. I talked to the admin, teachers, and others who ALL said they would call and let me know but Ima still waiting. If any of them are reading this (and I'm sure they are) I have not forgot yet. Still waiting for my call back. I should not have to ask a school five times to contact me about this. Always a fight with you guys. And it shouldn't be. This is your job. Hell I raise kids, work full time at my job, and still find the time to contact you.

The easiest thing to do is pull them out and send them to a different school. Do really think that half the teachers and administrators care? If you ask your child I bet they can name a few that do and many that do not! I have never understood why some people surround themselves by kids. Kids have feelings and need respect no matter what.
