My son is developmentally delayed ( I think I've mentioned this before) and although he is 9, he is more along the lines of a 5 year old. He is learning to read and only understands a few site words. We are working on this and we constantly praise him but I can see when he is around other kids how shaky his self esteem is.
What do you do to build your childs educational self esteem? He is very confident in all other areas but when it comes to learning, he really is so very unsure of himself.
