Very bright kid with emotional regulation issues-high school?
We need to start looking for a high school for our smart and challenged kid. High IQ, anxious, social/emotional regulation challenges. I know that mine isn't the only kid like this out there. We are in Oakland. Where do all these kids go? I am finding that schools who handle the emotional/behavioral aspect don't offer appropriately challenging academics and those who offer great academics want nothing to do with emotional/behavioral support. All the websites for the schools that have been recommended to me make it clear that if behavior is an issue, you're out of luck. But his current placement is failing him in a big way. Our IEP is coming at the end of this month and I want to be ready to suggest placements.
