just doesn't want to try? dyslexia? Something in between?? Help this frustrated mommy!
have a kid who is dyslexic or are dyslexic themselves? DS (6.5 yrs old/1st grade) is
getting to be soo frustrating with his homework because he doesn't want
to try and he's constantly writing numbers and letter backwards, when
reading his also mixes up basic sight words. I know those can all be
signs of dyslexia but i haven't heard anything from his teacher, speech
therapist, occupational therapist, music teacher, etc about anyone
noticing anything like that. I have seen it on some of his work that he
does in school, but it doesn't seem to be as big of a problem with that
work. Tonight, for example, he had to write 1 - 100, in order, and
there were about 20 numbers randomly printed for him already. Of the 80
he had to write, he probably wrote part, or all of 30 of them
backwards. He also kept acting like he didn't know how to count past 20
and I know for a fact that he does!! Grrr!! Its so frustrating!
