I need help!!! I had my son IQ tested and the results are not so good. His overall IQ is 76, I didn't really understand why he acts the way he does until now. From what I have been reading he will need support his whole life. His Verbal Comprehension is low, Perceptual Reasoning is low, Working memory is borderline, Processing Speed also borderline..full scale score is in the 5th percentile rank. I wanted to cry..I feel so bad, this whole time I'm telling him to listen to me, your a big boy..take a shower brush your teeth, get dressed..I shouldn't have to tell you everyday. When in reality I do. I want to move him to Smouse but his IEP team is saying no..I'm so stressed out..I don't know how to feel or how to raise him. I can't raise him like my other child...is there classes I can take

Hi, my advice to you is don't panic. Try and calm down and accept this has happened, I know it's not easy but it's something you have to do in order to ensure you develop a strategy to try and get him the help he needs. Where do you start? You take him to a Developmental Paediatrician who can do an overall assessment for him. You need to take him to a speech therapist and an occupational therapist. They will have to do assessments for him and once you have their reports you will have more clearer answers. These professionals will be able to advise you on the way forward. His schooling needs will have to be seen to. He will not cope in a normal school environment, he will have to attend a school that caters for children like him and recognize that he will learn at his own pace. Challenge is to find the correct professionals to help you and endure the running around, you will hear alotof tings that may not make sense to you but I am hopeful that half your battle will be won once this is done. I wish you all the best, please remember that he can be helped and have hope that he will be successful like any other child, just needs extra help in getting there. As a mother it's not easy to deal with, especially when you don't have the answers, but a mothers love is most powerful. Build your childs confidence and always give encouragement to him. Make him feel like his the king of the world and he will strive.
