My son is 6 years old and in first grade in the Boston Public Schools. At the beginning of the school year, he was diagnosed with ADHD for which he takes medication (that has helped a lot. There is a 504 plan on file with the school. In addition, he was tested academically and found to be in line with his peers and remained in his classroom. We have had an IEP meeting. However, it has come to my attention that my son has been excluded from every class party, field trip, and social event that has occurred all year. The school has not informed me of these events (no permission slips were ever sent home) and I was never given any explanation as to why he could not attend. I called the school and was told that he is a "safety concern" and is excluded for his own well-being.
