In October my son turned 6 and at his wellness exam the pediatrician was bothered at his clumsiness and lack of coordination. He made zero suggestions/recommendations but we did take him to a podiatrist who said his balance is because he basically has 2 left feet and will need special insert orthotics someday for his weird arches as well. We pretty much let it go, especially since he's pretty athletic and enjoys dance year round (hip hop, tap, & ballet) and soccer in the Summers. ... well just now I was BORED and went to the schools grade-link website and learned that OMFG he's failing gym. Seriously. Failing gym. Cannot hop, skip, balance beam, etc. So what am I supposed to do now?Answer Question

Possible see a neurologist? Or a physical therapist? Good luck! Obviously something is off if he can't hop and he's 6 years old :( I would get a second opinion!
