My son was born at 28 weeks, 5/2007 spent 52 days in the NICU. He was a little behind with walking, talking but seemed to be "caught up" by the time he started kindergarten. He has always been a little quirky (for lack of a better word) certain noises bother him, refuses to learn to tie his shoes, very careful when playing, not a risk taker. He did very well kinder and 1st grade, now he is in the 2nd and is struggling. His teacher believes he is ADD, and it is very possible he is. Yesterday after a meeting with the principal, I was so upset they told me "I need to cut the apron strings". I came home and started searching to see if there was any connection with pre-term babies and learning disabilities. I am certain now that there is a connection, I just need help getting a plan of action and advice on getting the best possible help for my sweet boy.
