My child was always anxious about school. He has a learning difference. When he couldn’t do things, he attracted attention by acting silly. He started getting into trouble; this made him more anxious. There was downward spiral. The school did not recognize his learning disability. They thought he was purposefully choosing not to do his work. The more they pushed for compliance, the more anxious he became. He started experiencing physical symptoms. He would willingly go to school each day, but when he got there, he was unable to do what they asked, so they sent him home. We went to a psychologist who recommended homeschooling. We saw a psychiatrist who said to enroll him in a school that will attend to his learning disability. There is no school near us for special education. We have no choice but to educate at home.
