difficult child's main issues are some chronic physical problems and major depression. She misses a lot of school. We are gradually starting her back after an absence of 4 months by having her go to only 1 class a day. THe school is ready to assess her for an IEP. I suspect dyslexia, and have told her this before, and she is ok with being tested. However, she absolutely does not want an IEP or Special Education. I've explained to her that IEPs are for kids with many different problems that affect their schooling, but it doesn't matter. I've told her an IEP will give the school a lot of flexibility they otherwise wouldn't have to make school easier for her. Doesn't matter. Did anyone else have this problem, and any recommendations?
