My 14y/o has had problems getting up in the a.m. for 4 years, he falls asleep in class, and tells his teachers that he stays up all night playing video games. This is not true! He does not. He has Learning Disability (LD), iq is slightly less than average, but he is a bright child, used to be very happy. Now he seems anxious and lacks energy. His main sped teacher says he is ODD and manipulative. I don't see that so much. I see a boy who HAS to do things he doesn't feel good about (in her class) and he isn't assertive enough to tell her he wants more challenging work. He is also a shut down learner, which makes it hard for me to even consider home schooling. Not sure how to get him up and going in the a.m.'s, this is driving me nuts though!
