My son is having a pretty good year at school so far, except for not getting there all the time- either for the entire day or going in late. He's on probation so he really can't afford to be truant. We're having a few issues at home, but he isn't really being defiant so much as just sympommatic with signs of depression and anxiety lately. He is also having some major issues with sleeping- going to sleep at a good time and/or waking up in the night and not going back to sleep. Since the school is happy with his attitude, efforts, etc., so far this year, they have no problem with having an iep meeting to discuss his inability to get to school some days (average 1 day per week) as he should. My question is- what on earth can we put in the iep to cover him (and me) legally while not giving difficult child the impression that he can just skip school at his leisure? And, does this go in a BIP or as a behavior goal or what? The therapist and I have no doubt that the depression is at the root of it, but difficult child still needs to push himself to get there. Suggestions? Our meeting is Wed morning.
