So I sit and talk with him about the homework, he can give me answers, he can tell me how he got there, put then he writes down something completely different. Not even close to the answer. He had to write backward from 35 by 5s today. He recited it back to me with ease like 3 times. Then he wrote 35, 30, 25, 20, 35, 5, 0. I have offered to sit with him and watch him and help, but he doesn't want that. I am not sure why he is doing this.
I'm an ESE teacher who's worked with lots of kids (some ESE, some regular ed) with this problem. How old is he? Some children have a difficult time transferring information onto paper. Especially around 2nd- 3rd grade when they are expected to do more of it. You could have him dictate the answers to you, then copy your writing onto his paper.
I would talk to his teacher and see if she's concerned. It could just be a typical delay, or it could be something more serious. It depends on lots of factors.
