Well, here we go again. difficult child is getting discharged tomorrow. They have added Lithium to his medications and he seems more stable. When the psychiatrist announced the other day that he was discharging difficult child and back to school on Monday (no partial this time) you could see the change on difficult child's face, you could see the anxiety creep up. psychiatrist is frustrated because of difficult child's anxiety (and school not being cooperative) it causes everything else to get worse. psychiatrist wrote a really awesome letter to the school district for me to give them along with my request for for a 504 plan. I had requested last spring for him to be evaluated for a IEP, I was told it would happen at the beginning of the school this year, well then he was at residential and didn't do it there (I found out from the school social worker the other day that they could have started the process then - she couldn't understand why he didn't have services yet) anyway, I have been told repeatedly by the school that he has to be there to be evaluated - I get that but I need help getting him there. His anxiety is so overwhelming. So I am sending a letter to the school psychologist, my advocate, and the special education coordinator for the school region we are in, I am attaching the psychiatrist's letter with each one (I also mentioned in the letter that I had made the request before). I am frustrated also because difficult child is being required to take all of his end of semester finals. He missed them last week because he was inpatient. I have told the school repeatedly that he doesn't know the math in particular. His 7th grade counselor told me and difficult child in a meeting that it was his fault he wasn't at school and that it was his responsibility to get caught up with the rest of the class (this is the same counselor who threatened me with Educational Neglect because I couldn't get him to school). Uh, hello, this meeting was just a week or two after he came back to school after being in Residential Treatment Center (RTC) and a month in partial. Yes, he had regular school at Residential Treatment Center (RTC), but at partial they only have 2 hours a day and he didn't have work from his regular school since he hadn't been enrolled there this year yet. I picked up difficult child's school work last week to give to him, his math teacher had wrote study for final, but no clue given as to what he is supposed to study. So I had to wait until Tuesday (I was given school work on Friday) to call her and ask study what. She left me a message with the chapters, I took difficult child's book to him Wednesday morning, she emailed me a study guide, which I gave to difficult child last night. So he is supposed to take a final exam on stuff that he has no clue how to do? I told difficult child to just try his best. Anyway, can you tell I am frustrated with the school?
