First grade again?
- He missed a lot of school ( he was always suffering from throat infections) about a month ago tonsils and adenoids were removed. He also had sleep apnea.
- He had attention problems, he has not been diagnose with ADD (My son was always tired; i was the one that pushed for a sleep study, that's why adenoids were removed) I think if you can't sleep you can focus! I want to give him some time.
-He has speech problems. Now he is getting speech@school.
- The school is telling me that he will get help in second grade. He will be in a smaller classroom. He is a average student. Reading is beginning first grade level.
- He can read and write but i always have to be next to him. He cannot work by himself. Self Esteem very low.
-He is behind so I feel that repeating will benefit him, however i really think that its not going to help him with his low self esteem. I really don't know what to do! and If i decide for him to go to second grade i will pay a tutor to reinforce ! please help!!!!
