If you are not getting the help you need from him school, you need to call on your inner mama bear. You are your childs advocate, not only will it help him emotionally to see you stand you for him but the help he gets in school is sometimes dependant on how loud you are. I work as an education assistant and sadly there are kids in way worse situation than your son. In Canada each child is alloted so much time depending on their diagnosis, your son may only get 15 or 20 minutes, well for such a small time often the child never see's a minute, because there may be another child who's needs are greater but gets no time. Bitch and scream your child will et the help he needs. As for my earlier suggestions don't stop the learning just because it's summer, it will only make the transition back to school harder

the doctors say it is an educational problem and he is already on an IEP at school but the teachers dont really help they want to start things in september but i have been waiting since he was 5 to be tested,but was teasted this january so i want to try things at home, september is long for me and him,toe by toe was mentioned but then was decided that it was too hard for him.

I would suggest obtaining an IEP for him because it will enable him to receive special education privelages.You will get a full diagnosis and plan for his education. Each state is different but there is the NO child left behind act and don't take no for an answer.

Find him a private tutoring program, they will teach him strategies to overcome dyslexia. If he has not been diagnosed talk to you doctor and get it done.
