OK, so we are awaiting and Education psychologist report to come through with in the next week or two to find out were Oliver stands to what support he might need for school in core subjects. This is a long wait might I had, while also awaiting an appointment with Occupational Therapy. This weekend I choose to help Oliver more with SPAG at home, giving him his tablet to help him focus we did a page of fractions (Maths being one of his faves this wasn’t a problem) However SPAG was another thing all together, we did one page and he didn’t seem to get it. I don’t understand how his English Teacher can say there are no issues and he can do more complex work when at home he can’t do the simple tasks, we did Prefixes, so nothing major and he didn’t get some of it. We even did his spelling homework, now for this all I do it make Oliver copy out the words three times, just copy from a sheet to writing them down and he was missing out letters. It’s like this in his homework diary he can’t seem to copy things word for word he misses out so much. So if he can’t do this for writing out his homework and copying things at home, how can he be doing it in school? Why has no one seem to pick up on this? The more I think about the more I think he is going unnoticed in Class.
I though I would do some of t his work to one help Oliver and two to show the Occupational Therapist his handwriting and letter forming as that is one main reason we are awaiting an appointment, now I wish I had done this for the Educational Psychologist too to have examples rather than just speaking about it.
Oh well lets await a report and see what happens from there, maybe if it comes back he’s fine I will show school the work at home, but then when I look at his school work I can see the same things in there.
Maybe some of his teachers just can’t be bothered to understand and work with him? Some are fabulous tho and a true credit to the profession. Maybe the unhelpful ones shouldn’t be teaching?
I guess time will tell on how things go and in the mean time Oliver carries on struggling and losing interest in school, the scary thing is this could carry on, unless something changes.
