Hi everyone! I am mom to three daughters, 2 with ADHD (oldest with depression as well), and one with DMDD/ODD and anxiety. Life is crazy! I am here looking for support and advice. I have 504 plans for all, thankfully, but I am still struggling. My oldest, who is 15/10th grade is just royally screwing up her grades, no motivation, lack of interest, etc. Her overall GPA was 2.2 last year, with a 1.6 4th quarter. And you wouldn't guess it, but she's extremely intelligent! AHHHHHH, so frustrating. So I am scheduled to go to a 504 plan review meeting to figure how we can make her successful. I hate that she feels like she is a failure, and she carries such guilt for not completing her work.
I need suggestions from all of you parental experts out there on what accommodations work the best for teenagers. I am out of ideas. I'm not afraid to suggest some crazy stuff to the school at this point, so bring it on!
Thanks for your input!
