My son is diagnosed with ADHD, ODD and Anxiety. He does not have any close friends at school, has constant peer rejection and is presently being bullied. He started refusing school in 4th grade, made it through 5th alright but was sent to a behavioral school (a nightmare for him) in 6th due to school refusal. Now back at public school for 7th, he is refusing again. He is beginning to show severe depression and experiences panic attacks at school. He's home now nearly 2 weeks straight and I can't get him to go. We have him in therapy and medical treatment. Is it time to pull him from public school and start homeschooling? How long do I keep pressuring him to attend public school, when in my heart I think it will always be a problem for him. I would love to get any opinions and advice.
