Hello, I have an almost 7yr old boy who has been struggling with learning since age 2. He has trouble memorizing simple things like his name, phone number, letters, etc. He still struggles to say the ABC's from beginning to end. He has been IQ tested by the school and found to be normal IQ. He will look at something, say it and then forget it soon after. His kindergarten teacher thought he was doing this on purpose until I set her straight. Thankfully his first-grade teachers have been more open, but he still struggles. He is out of his class for interventions from 8am - 11am and then again right after lunch. We made the decision to retain him in first-grade and struggle with our decision. I know 2nd grade would be impossible. He still cannot journal with the other children.
If this sounds familiar to anyone, please write back. Thanks!
