My son is six, in first grade. The teacher thinks he has attention problems and no motivation. He has to be told over and over to get busy and she thinks he may need medicine. He sees a special education teacher for four hours a week and she isn't sure medicine will help him. He is not a hyper active kid. She thinks he has a problem processing information and that there is a lot going on inside his mind, but he has trouble communicating what he knows. His reading level is a couple of levels behind what the teacher wants him to be at this year. He seemed to be doing alright the first quarter of school and now he is on the possible failing list. My husband thinks the school isn't doing enough for him and wants to know what the answer is and what will fix him. Anyone with advice?
