My 7-yr-old son was diagnosed with dyslexia. The doctor said we should inform his school and when we did, the teacher thought it would be a good idea for my son to talk to his classmates about dyslexia and what that is, because he was teased all the time because of his reading problems. Our son did that, but now he gets teased even more. The other kids call him "the sick-o-boy" and my son is very sad all the time. He refuses to go to school so we have huge fights every morning until his on the bus.
I also have another son in the same school and now he get teased as well because his brother has dyslexia!!! The teachers say they cannot do anything about it. What should I do??

Well I don't agree that he should have told the students himself about his issue. I don't think it should have been brought up at all to the other kids. That teasing IMO is them being bullies and I would keep contacting the school.

My son is dyslexic along with 2 other learning disabilities. I think the teacher blew it first off. What is done is done though. My son was bullied to no end. received little help from the school until after Columbine High School happened. The teacher tells you she can do nothing about it....then you need to be sitting in the office waiting to talk to the vice principal. If they won't take an active approach..the principal and from there the district all the way to your schools superintendent. Request a 504 hearing. Bullying is usually outlined in district policies. If yours doesn't you son is expressly protected against bullying by section 504 civil rights act and also by IDEA (Individuals with Disabilities Education Act ). Get hot and stay hot. Kids with disabilities are far more likely to be targeted for bullying.
