Re: Newly diagnosed 11 year old

Hello,

It really sounds like your son is having a hard time in school and that you are doing everything you can to help him. I can relate to your post because my son struggled all throughout school but what I have found is that positive reinforcements worked much more than negative consequences did, such as losing recess for something that clearly goes beyond a child that is being defiant or forgetful. I would encourage you to find the ways in which your son learns and then share your discoveries with the school. Keep trying and don't give up. I recently read this article that you may find to be helpful. it is called encouraging auditory, visual, and kinesthetic learning.
