So my son is undiagnosed sn but his biggest issue is focus esp at school. One thing that at home helps is focus is his "learning books". Can I send those to school and have it in his iep to get him refocused give him one of his books?

Hes in headstart and is 5.

Letters and learning to write them. We are currently working on his penmanship. He also has a numbers one. He also has number cards to work on counting.

Being unable to focus at five years old isn't special needs, its normal five year old behavior.

Did i say thats what his sn was? No. Hes undiagnosed at this moment. Focus is just the major issue at the moment.

Orginally he had an iep for speech then behavior. His behavior has improved but his focus is still terrible its like that of a 3 yo(atleast at school). At home he can do his books,coloring,and blocks for hours

Is he in the process of being tested for anything, like ADHD or autism?

What kinds of things are in his IEP?

Have you discussed with his Dr testing for ADHD? Even if you don't medicate, he would have a diagnosis and they would be able to put that in the IEP.

We will be after the new year once I actually am not working multple jobs,in school,&pregnant. I dont think we are looking at autism more add or adhd.

Right now to chill him out they have a cozy corner with a bean bag and books but he isnt wanting that anymore and will fight going to it. He needs a lot.of redirection to get focused.
