What the Expert Says:

You are describing your son as having strengths in math, but struggling in reading, science and classes where reading is necessary. A speech delay can indicate a learning difference for him. He needs more attention and assistance.

The activities you describe are excellent. You may consider having him in a reading program this summer. The school may suggest programs in your area to help him.

If these issues continue (attentional problems, reading difficulties), consult with the school counselor about what services are available to help him improve.
