Desperate with my 16 yo son that he's refusing to attend school
I'm in the state of Michigan. My son was diagnosed with Aspergers Syndrome and also mood disorders. He obviously has an IEP.
He's been totally refusing to attend school. All started when he was friends with a girl at school which she was very supportive with him, then they had a small dispute now this girl is not acting the same towards my son and this is why he will not attend school...This is been going on for 2 months. I talked to my District about it...so far nothing has been done. I've taken the computer away which he likes so much, he's still wont go to school. I know that in Michigan once you're 16 you don't have to attend school, so that's my fear that the District wont take action...im talking about providing a different placement or give us some options. He's in 11th grade, he flunked 10th gd. Is just been so many issues through his school years. Im even thinking to move to another County, or even state. I really appreciate any advice on what to do. And our concern is the longer he skip school the worse is going to be. And he does go to school anything happens that he does not like..the next day he will not attend school. Anyone knows a good school District that has a High functioning Autism Program for High School students?
Thanks so much for your support!
