Hi:I'm a new parent to the forum. My daughter has Tourette's and is 15. Her tics are pretty minor but she has major sleep issues and minor OCD issues.
For the past few months she has missed school or been late at least 40% of the time.
She's on clonidine to help her get the deep sleep she needs and wellbutrin to deal with lack of energy and mood.
How do other parents deal with truancy? I know she is tired but I think the more she stays home and gets behind the harder it will be for her to go to school at all. I'm sure she finds it embarrassing, as well, to be so behind in her school work.
How do I get her to school?
Does anyone have any suggestions?
