ADHD and Swiss schools

Hello,I am a new member,I am dyslexic,so please excuse any spelling mistakes I might make.
My 7 year old boy was diagnosed with adhd when he was in kindergarten,he is now in the first class and the school says it cannot offer him any help.
His teacher is fresh out of college and this is the her first teaching year and she finds him hard to manage ,since he cannot sit still in class,so the school hired an assistant( untrained),that went well for a while .the principle has been very supportive to the teacher .when we spoke to him a few months back he clearly told us without medication he won't be able to remain in the school.now we were asked to go to the school psychologist for an evaluation,she said that he is very bright ,too bright even,so the school can't hire a trained assistant for him,that's only for kids not very bright.
Now she has suggested he go to the sonderschule,because there is nothing the school can do for him.
I find this whole situation unfair,and my son has been put through the so much trauma,that he feels he is not like others.
My son is at the moment so stresses that he told the teacher he wants to die,the teacher promptly reported this to the psychologist ,who now thinks he might not have adhd at all but some other emotional problems.

I want to know what rights I have as a parent and if anyone else has had a similar experience to mine,thanks,Rama.
