How coarse is the ordinal variable? If it's got 10 categories or so
and is reasonably centered and symmetric (the last part is crucial)
you can get away with assuming it's continuous and just using an
estimator for instrumental variables. You can probably get away with
it even down to 5 categories, though you'll have some attenuation due
to the discrete response.

If it's got 3 points, is skewed or near the boundary of the response
space, you're likely to run into trouble, but if you are intrepid you
can use -gllamm- or -gmm- to get an estimate.
