Last year we had issues, but so far this year has apparently been horrible for Eris in school. Her teacher says she doesn't do any work, is constantly distracted, would rather sit and draw, flat out tells the teacher there is no disipline. The teacher claims she's bringing down the entire class. And this is a school where all parents have to volunteer some time so there is always another adult in the class to help out. husband and the teacher have agreed to take away her recess time so she can work on schoolwork, and husband gets there early most days to work with an aide. She has an IEP so they won't hold her back. I know she's smart enough to learn this, but her test scores show she's far from it (25% on math, 50% on reading). Homeschooling is NOT an option because I work and husband is horrible at schooling (he volunteers in class, but refuses to help with homework). I don't want her in, nor do I think she's that far off "normal" to need a special needs class. What would you do? She's been diagnosed with ODD but is showing some slight autistic tendencies. I do as much homework with her as she will allow (I let up once I can tell she has hit that wall). But even with doing all the homework and trying to get her knowledge and skill level up, it still doesn't fix the defiancy in the classroom. Are there any options?
