    Sadly such a common scenario these days and so sad, especially when you see families trying so hard. One suggestion I have, which is not ideal though, is to enrol your student on an on-line school, for example Kings Inter High, Academy 21, (not recommendations, just examples, I think there are loads more). They can do their learning in online classrooms at home and build some resilience back for learning. You could then potentially allow them to do their online learning in school rather than at home and gradually reintroduce them to classroom learning. There are a lot of ERSA (emotionally related school avoidance) resources available, but if the student is not in school, it makes things really difficult. Definitely keep in touch regularly so that student does not stop feeling they belong in your school.
