May I ask how you got on with your daughter? My daughter in a similar situation. Slow processing, struggles with her peers. Bullying hasn't helped a few years ago, she lacks trust and confidence. She has dipped in and out of school refusal and we have always managed to coax her back into school. She only has this year left and she can leave. She is so smart but all her anxieties have come to a head and probably the stress of exams next year has her in knots. She said she will go to another school, she says she needs a fresh start. But its an hour away and I don't feel it's the answer. My husband totally disagrees with any school move and says its a bad move as at least the school she is in are trying to help and thinks she is causing some of the problems. She knows some people who are nice - but she just says everyone is fake. She has recently fallen out with her best friend. Her best friends mum even wants to help but she says her daughter just tells her lies so whats the point. She refuses to see any therapist or talk to anyone about this. I think there are mental health issues going on so how do I help her?
