STRONG aversion to school!
(lake in the hills, il)
My 10 year old son with SPD is really struggling in school. I feel that as much as the staff is trying to accommodate, nobody really understands SPD and how it truly affects his days at school.
It is midyear and just getting worse. He screams and cries in the mornings, begging me not to take him 'there' (to school) every single day now. And at the end of the day when I pick him up, he literally runs out the door and quickly walks with me to the car.
We don't even talk about school for the first 1/2 hour we are home so that he can relax and have some alone quiet space before trying to talk about his day. (He is very angry and/or sad for that 1/2 hour until he calms down.)
Please give me advice on how I can help him feel better about going to school each day and let him know that he is ok.
