My son is in the evaluation stage. He's been seen by the Pediatrician and the Pediatric Neurologist. We get the results at a meeting next week.
I feel like I cannot handle this. Everything takes so long for him to do. I have to be right next to him prompting him so he can complete a task. Homework takes forever unless I am right there saying, "now what's next", "stop looking at the wall", "keep you eyes on the paper", "stop playing with your pencil".
He seems to have gotten worst now that he's is the middle of 4th grade. The work is harder and he finds any excuse to get up from his desk (sharpening pencil, bathroom, cleaning his glasses, putting on a sweater". And suddenly he does not know how to do anything unless I coach him through it. It took 2 hours for him to put 25 words in alphabetical order, because he claimed he needed my help. He has had to put his spelling words in order since third grade. Why is he doing this?
I can't take this. I'm not sure what medication can do with this type of of behavior. I am scared that I will have to be attached to him like this throughout the foreseeable future.
Please tell me it is going to change, because I can't do this much longer. I had to walk away today, his homework will be incomplete for the first time, but I just couldn't. HELP.
