I have about six kids in my class with this disorder. A few
are on medication, most are not. I teach general ed. LRE in
this situation does not work. My advice is to insist that
you make it know to your admins that you will not deal with
more than one ODD kid each year. If they see you doing a
good job with one, they'll give them all to you bceause you
can handle it. ODD kids seem to be coming out of the
woodwork. Every year, we get more and more.
