Anyone else struggling with this? My HFA/ADHD HS freshman had a great middle school experience and completely fell apart this year, particularly the past semester. She took mostly honors classes (a mistake) and there were a lot of assignments.
--Her 504 allowed her to complete partial assignments but that didn't help. Unmotivated to do schoolwork, procrastinated, finished work but didn't turn it in. She blew off assignments with small point values, figuring they wouldn't matter. They did - it added up over time and incomplete work is always a 0.
--Some teachers do not have homework websites so there's no way for parents to keep track of what's assigned and when it's due. Her school counselor was incredibly helpful, but by the end of the semester, her interventions weren't working. My teen wasn't doing her part.
--She had a study buddy for each class and we required a checkin with each teacher after every class. She didn't do either one - said she was but actually wasn't.
--Therapists told us to let it happen - until she's motivated to do the work, she just won't. No amount of carrots or sticks help. Counseling and medication don't seem to be working.
Any advice for next school year?
