OK so my 5 year old son is in Kindergarten this year. He told me 2 weeks ago that he felt "stupid" because he was behind the other kids. So i assured him that he wasnt stupid and I braught it up to the teacher. I asked her if there was anything that I could do at home to give him extra help or if he needed to take a special class. She assured me that he wasnt that far behind and that he would be getting a reading buddy 30 mins a week to help him a little more. OK fast forward to friday, he brings home a progress report type thing. It says that he is behind in EVERYTHING!!! Umm hello I asked 2 weeks ago for him to get some extra help. So I spent all weekend working on him with his letter, which we have been working on for over a year. I think he has dyslexia, it runs in my family so it doesnt really shock me. I am going to the principle on MOnday to see if they can test him and get him some extra help. I am just so frustrated I feel like a bad mom because I cant get him to learn his alphabet and letter sounds. I also feel horrible because I didnt really push the issue 2 weeks ago when he told me he was behind. I beleived the teacher. UGh... I just dont know what to do. He is not a stupid child its just like he cant retain the letters!!! Any advice???
