My son is in kindergarten and his teacher has been complaining that he doesnt do his work in class. She says he just spaces out and stares at the paper. I stayed with him in class to observe and I had to keep telling him to get his work done. I dont know why he just doesnt do his work. He loves working on homework at home and he never had this problem at his other school. I moved recently and he is going to a new school now and he has been there for about a month now. When the kids in his class read he doesnt pay no attention and when the teacher talks to explain a assignment he doesnt listen. What can I do to help me focus? He doesnt even listen to the teacher when she is talking to him, he acts like he doesnt hear her. His father says its ADD but I dont think so. What do I do please some advice.Answer Question

ok my other thought was dyslexia but you said he works at home okis anything worrying him , dose he like school , how is he socially l, sorry i know it a lot of questions but it hard to try and help without a lot of infojust in case signs of dyselxia Has particular difficulty with reading and spelling. Puts letters and figures the wrong way round. Has difficulty remembering tables, alphabet, formulae etc. Leaves letters out of words or puts them in the wrong order. Still occasionally confuses 'b' and 'd' and words such as 'no/on'. Still needs to use fingers or marks on paper to make simple calculations. Poor concentration. Has problems understanding what he/she has read. Takes longer than average to do written work. Problems processing language at speed.
