My son is 12 and was diagnosed with being developmentally delayed and with dyslexia in the first grade. He has been in Special Education since then. He is now in the 6th grade, he should be in the 7th but was held back in the 4th grade. He finally this year has been able to read on a 3rd grade level. When we read in the evenings before bed he struggles so bad. He missed a lot of school when he was younger because of being in and out of the hospital so many times. He had severe asthma and also had cranialphysinosis, which he had head surgery for. His neurosurgeon informed us that the surgery could possibly delay his developmental function. Ive tried everything to help him read better. It is frustrating for the both of us to have him struggle so bad. What more can I do to help him read better? His English teacher done something different for him to do his spelling tests. Besides him writing his words out she writes them out three different ways and he chooses the right way. He aces it every time. But im at a lose with his reading. Help!!!!!
