Guess where difficult child is??? In bed!! He says he can't hear. This is due to him still having some nasal congestion. I tried to call his dr on Fri to let him know that difficult child still has congestion and an earache. No one was at the dr's office- the dr had told me last Mon to call on Fri if difficult child wasn't better. Anyway, difficult child seemed to go on his usual business just fine the past few days in spite of this and answered my questions this morning (even though he can't hear???). So, what is the next step? difficult child has been absent so much, especially the last 2 weeks that I doon't know what steps to take at this point. We had an iep meeting about it, but this was 2 weeks ago and things have gotten much worse. It appears clear to me that difficult child is going to continue to miss school until there is some sort of intervention. I really do not want to call the school and asked them to send someone over this morning. Soon, they will be required to call social services in or someone else. Do I just sit here and wait for that or is there something else I can do?
