I'm new here and posted the following in another group and didn't get much feed back. If some of you had a child that seemed normal till they got in school, how did you feel, was you numb, or in denial, like me?
My 5 year old DD is passing up my almost 7 year old DS in school. She is in K he is in 1st grade, they are evaluating him for a learning disability, tomorrow . She can read out of his book and he gets sad and says "I don't want her to be smarter than me" I'm proud of her and proud of him too, because he has made progress this year, but he is not where he should be, but It's like I can't be happy for one without hurting the other. He looks normal and acts normal except for some sensory issues with food and very poor fine motor skills, he just isn't getting it at school.
