Tigger suffers from extreme school anxiety. Of the 170 days of school this year, he has missed 26 completely and was late (anywhere from 5 minutes to several hours) on 35 others. That doesn't count the days I dragged him there on time and they had to restrain him to keep him at school. Other days he goes willing to school and has fun, does his work, etc. I'm thinking of asking for the following placement. I can't think of any reason that this wouldn't be legal. What do you think? Dual-placement in specialized instruction program and homebound. Full set of books will be kept at home and home will have a fax machine. On days that he is unable to get to school, the teacher will fax the lesson plan for the day to our house and Tigger will do all of the work at home. This way he is still learning every day, the work is consistent regardless of where he is. The issues I see the school pushing back on are all financial (1) he has a 1:1 aide -- how does that work when some days he is there and others he is not (2) he gets short-bus transportation -- we'd need the bus to come each day (3) if they only get funding for the days he actually attends the school building then they are not getting reimbursed for the very expensive related services in (1) and (2) (not my problem, but they will argue that it is irresponsible of them to use the limited Special Education funds to have the services in place for a child who will miss 40-50% of the days I think if we let Tigger have control, his anxiety will be lessened. When not consumed by anxiety, he does enjoy school, has friends and likes his teachers. Anyone ever try this before????
