Thanks so much for the response. This RO forum is really helpful, it's just good to know there are others experiencing similar things and there is support out there. My daughter has made peace with the (ex)-friend, and has good friends in other classes, so her peer support is ok. He fear is now based in the actual classroom, she says the teachers don't understand. The school has created an IEP and all her teachers have a copy but I believe some of them think we're using the 'Anxiety card' to get her out of class and schoolwork. We do have strategies that work for my daughter when she's having anxiety attacks (the best is to get into a car, she listens to her music with headphones and we go for a drive). We're lucky that we live 3 streets away from school and I work from home, so if things are really bad she can escape for a while. Hoping she can finish out the term attending some school, and not getting too many detentions. I am worried that after 2 weeks on holidays she won't want to go back at all for Term 2.
