Ds, 10, is severely driving me nuts. Last year, he was bringing home a's and b's. This year, he bright home 3Ds and an f. Yes,.we moved. I have tried everything, from sitting and helping him with his homework, finding creative ways to help him understand the material, etc.
Now, he is regressing in his spelling. He misspells the vocabulary words when he can look at them right on the board and copy them down! He also misspells words he didn't used to. He is falling math and language arts, despite me going over his homework and making sure it is done correctly. Tonight, I had him doing definitions on his spelling words,.and while his spelling words were spelled correctly,.he misspelled a ton of words from the definitions themselves. With the dictionary right in front of him 7!!!
He is severely testing my patience. I have given him extra bookwork, taken away privilges. At the rate he is going, the only time he will see the sun is to and from school!!! I have had him treated for dyslexia, he is not. I am setting up am appointment with his doctor to test him for any other learning disabilities. I am at the end of my rope!!
