Hi. I am a new member here and a very frustrated parent. My 16 year old has just been placed in an alternative school. The school had me come in for what I thought was a ccc, only to find out that they were going to suggest to me that I have him quit school. The gave me contact information for two programs that 1 he did not qualify for because he has behavior issues, and the other one because he is on probation. They said he was not working towards a high school diploma and at the rate he was headed he was going to be expelled. So I agreed to put him in the alternative school because I don't want him to quit. After 3 semesters of high school he only has 1 credit. He has 97 class absences this semester. He is constantly being suspended for symptoms of his odd. I have to go in tomorrow for a ccc to review the iep to make sure it is an appropriate document for his new placement. I had to call to set this up myself with the new TOR. I am very happy to have a new TOR because if I have to deal with the old one again I may end up on probation. But seriously, I am to the point now that if this child receives a hs diploma it will truly be a miracle. I just wonder if he has this much trouble with h school, how will he ever survive as an adult? Will he be able to keep a job and get insurance for medications, and will he even take medications, and if he doesn't what will happen? I am just really tired. I work a job on midnights so I can be available during the day for appts with his counselor at school, and the counselor for probation and ccc mtgs, and mtgs with the probation officer, and medication appts, and I just want a real job during the day time that I can use my college degree! Will it ever end? Does anyone on here have any success stories for a child that has odd, adhd, and depression?
