Topic Date Posted by
Our 10 year old son has been formaly diagnosed as having Dyspraxia and ADD. He is behind with his education due to this and the school do not seem willing to support my sons mother and me through helping our son to achieve. What do you advise we do? What books can help us to help our much loved son? Thank you

>if the school is reluctant to help, through personal experience i suggest you find out about you and your sons right, the Code of Practise, from your LEA, is a start, and regular contact with the senco. I sympathise with the way you must be feeling it can be a struggle some times, also contact the ed psyc he / she is there to help 09/08/2001

>My son (10.5 years) has also recently been diagnosed as mildly dyslexic and dyspraxic. His learning difficulties went undetected and he was accused of not taking responsibility for his homework! I would recommend to put in writing your dissatisfaction to the Head and the support you require for your child. Then follow this with a meeting with the Head and the SENCO. Keep the pressure on - IN WRITING ! 16/05/2002

>there is a book out about dyspraxia its a parent and teacher guide on understanding how dyspraxia varies, affects children in the different age groups it might be worth getting it and show the teachers what is wrong with your child and what you and the teachers can do to help the child. If that doesnt work take it up with school guvs 12/09/2002
