Hello Im Alex
My son is 9 years old.He is very behind in all subjects.He is also has behavioural issues. We are often called to the school as he has hurt another child or has damaged somebody's possessions. He has no empathy and no matter what punishments we give him they have no effect on him.
We have seen the school psychologist who only looks at his school work, we have been to the GP. He has seen the Community Child Health Department. They all say they can see that there is something but they cant say what.
Its not that we want a diagnosis(although that would help), we just want to know how to help him and reach him in a way we can understand. In school he is just being punished for being naughty. We are concerned for him and his future.
Is there anyone else who has a child similar to this who can offer us some guidance.
