My daughter is almost 8, in yr 2 at a public school. She is in a mainstream classroom with Teacher Aide support and Special ed withdrawal.
She is diagnosed with ASD, ADHD, ODD, OCD, Anxiety, multiple medical issues including requiring ng tube feeding during school hrs.
She misses quite a lot of school due to medical/therapy appointments.
Currently she is being assessed at a yr 1 level for 90% of her schooling, and I was recently told to still expect F's on her report card. She hates school to the point where she is having massivly agressive meltdowns every school day morning and sunday nights. Her oral eating is very poor throughout the week but improves on the weekends. She refuses to do her work both at home and school, and does not write. (poor fine motor abilities).
Her IQ scored at 74 3 yrs ago and ive been trying to get the school to retest but they wont (im now looking into having the cognitive assessment done privatly).
IF she were to score under 70 I will immediatly apply for her to attend the special school.
My question is, If she doesnt score under 70 (therefore being inelligable for special school), could i, should i, pull her out of the school and home school her?
Ive had both the head of special ed and her mainstream teacher say she wont get into special school, and that i shouldnt home school because she is alreay yrs behind socially and emotionally.
So what the hell do i do???
