Hi Just thought I would get some moral support here. My high school age son (difficult child 1) has gotten to the point he usually gets to at this point in the school of deciding that school is too hard and just shutting down. He has pretty good supports etc, he just doesn't see why he should spend time doing work he hates doing. I've gotten to the point that I don't even know what to say anymore. Because you might want to get a job someday doesn't seem to make much impression. Anyway when he refuses to do work in class the teachers get frustrated, he gets sent to the ass't principal for a talk on the importance of school and then gets put in what I call the isolation chamber (bare room) to think about things. Somehow I don't think this is the treatment of choice for an intelligent but depressed kid struggling with major processing and executive function difficulties. He is pretty well medicated now--yeah for Lamictal, on a helpful dose of Adderall. While we might tweak things a little, our home life is actually pretty good. He's lost some privileges (no TV, isn't getting his learner's permits until school work improves) but I am reluctant to deprive him of spending time with his one friend who is a nice kid, as this is a kid who had trouble making friends etc. Anyway, we have an IEP meeting on Friday where I think I will get the isolation chamber written out the menu of options. Any ideas? Thanks.
