So my son who has only been diagnosed ADD, but we have many other suspect diagnoses, totally bombed his tests last week. Like 33% bombed. Some he totally didnt even answer questions, and some he must have really not known what is going on. These are reading tests that we do not have study guides or anything for, they are basically trying to get the kids to write down what they found from the selection and summarize or whatever the topic is that week. He is awful at writing. Doesnt capitalize, put punctuation where it belongs, and a lot of times his handwriting is so awful, big letters, small letters, you cant even read it. Nor can he. He goes to tutoring 3 hours per week privately, with a teacher who has three children who have NEVER had anything below an A on anything. Her oldest son is in one of the top colleges in the nation to be a doctor. Anyways, she cant figure him out either. She has been tutoring him for almost a year and we have made no progress. I feel like I am failing my son. It will be 12 months before I can get him in DDBP at Childrens. ANY suggestions????? I am lost.
