    My 4 year old son

    My 4 year old son was just diagnosed with full blown ADHD on October 21st and I am so lost. We have decided to opt out of receiving medications for him as of currently and are looking into behavioral therapy. He was going to a charter school for VPK but after a week the dean of the school asked him to be removed because of his behavior and were of very little help. I don't believe there is anything I can do currently with that school but next year he will be going into kindergarten. I was curious if anyone knows if schools even for VPK are really allowed to ask the child to be removed from the school because of the behavioral issue that had been previously discussed?
