I wonder if anyone out there knows how to address an issue with a child who is disabled and lives in a residential facility for the disabled.
She has autism, MR and is also hearing impaired. I am having problems with an ineffective behavioral clinic there and also a behavioral doctor who takes it upon himself to reduce her medications. I feel like I don't know everything that is going on. How do I get her behavioral problems addressed without getting her thrown out of the facility...ie.. until there is a better place for her to go. No one seems to be listening. The administration is not very effective, the school and dorm fight all the time, and there is a huge turnover in staff. I went back to the social worker who placed her there four years ago but she was not very helpful. She is now 16 and I need help. Where can I find it? Her father does not live in this state and is not helpful and the family is not very involved either. It's just me, and I live three hours away.
