This means my son is delayed in every area of development, what I find the hardest to deal with is doing school work at home. I find myself expecting too much of him, he does not seem able to grasp anything to do with reading and writing etc...My son is 5 years old and in kindergarten going to grade 1. They send home simple assignments to work on like: recognizing sounds and identifying the letter to go with it and 9 times out of 10 he gets the answer wrong, it makes me so sad and I seem to be having a hard time accepting the fact that this is just the way his life through school is going to be because I want him to do better...but how? I feel like the only way for him to get better would be for me to constantly make him do extra work when he is at home but he has no interest,, so how do you get him interested? Gotta go...my son just ran out the door!
