Response from Jason / Maryland
Thank you! I've been considering all options. Tomorrow I have a meeting scheduled with the school, with our psychologist. Hopefully we will come to a meaningful remedy to my sons refusal of school.
The isolation and restraint was their answer to him not attending, to drag him into the building and let him sit isolated learning nothing and pick him up at the end of the day. This we only allowed a few times under threat from the school.
We don't want to pull him from GT because he will be bored, that will create other issues.
Diagnosis was depressive disorder.
No learning disabilities, and a exceptional IQ score.
We reside in Maryland, I'll be happy to update our status so that other parents can learn shortcuts negotiating with unwilling participants child and school system!
