What is Secritin? What does it do and how does it work? My son is 12 and I have found that he is not doing well at all at school unless it is art or a hands on project. We held him back one year hoping that he would do better with younger children butr he is still a year behind at least educationally. I finally found a dentist with the patience to work with my son after he cracked his tooth and had to have it pulled. Sedation is sometimes the only way but he is doing better with dentists if I am not with him in the room. I hope that your surch for a good education is better than mine. I have major battles with his teachers over IEP meetings.
