My son is 13, high functioning Autism, ADHD, DMDD, and has dyslexia. I am at a loss for what to do about school. School is one of the biggest triggers right now for defense mode, but we are required by law to send him to school. We have other children and need both of our educator incomes to support our family (right now we cannot home school or pay for private school). What have others done when a child is not functioning well at school, it's exacerbating defense mode, but the school is not putting enough in place to help your child be successsful so it just turns into a viscous and worsening cycle of dysregulation, getting nothing done, and then an even more heightened dysregulated state?
