I worked hard for years to add and improve my son's I.E.P., so the accommondations I put in place would help him succeed in school. Problem: Even with all the bells and whistles, he still either "forgets" to do his homework, does it...but loses it, or simply doesn't care when the teacher lowers his grade for not turning it in on time. His forgetfulness seems to have gotten worse and I don't know what to do. Should I just give up and let him figure it out what he needs to do, or ask the teachers to rework a better system? I don't know if it's all the ADD or if he just doesn't care. His parents and teachers, lately, seem to be the only ones staying on top of what he's supposed to be doing. I think, but I'm not sure, he might be taking advantage of the situation. One teacher called him lazy (not to him, but me) and another said he's talented, smart, and very capable of doing the work. Right now he's in the low C, D, range because of his inconsistant homework. I know he struggles with remembering things and staying on top of things but...how much is it the ADD? What to do?
