    You should request a meeting about the child and bring up all of your concerns. In the very least, contact whomever it is that has his IEP (I'm sure he has one) and be sure you read it, especially any areas of "additional information" or "additional requirements" or some such info. It may have a behavioral plan mentioned, which gives you the authority to use that plan in your room. (It may not be YOUR plan, but one set up by his teacher that you continue with while he's with you.) It may also give you some other important information that may be helpful, such as he becomes over stimulated in a loud room or when given mutilple step directions, etc. which may cause him to "strike out". Talk to his regular teacher & see what she does in the room to handle his behavior; seek her/his advise.

    From personal experince, school districts often become weak in the knees when a parent starts to "lawyer up" and threatens law suits. Teachers end up with children in their classrooms that really would benefit more from a program aimed towards meeting their specific needs.
