Q:

How can I help my grandson and his parents?  He's having a hard time focusing in school?

This child has a problem with focusing on the task at the time given. He also is in a school that has a large classroom size where he teacher has targeted him as a problem and has tunnel vision where she will never in my opinion see anything different. I would like to assist my daughter in law with the possibilities of a private or charter school that may be more structured for my grandsons needs. He is a sensitive child and needs a little more one on one attention in order to maintain the grade point average that I know that he is capable of keeping. Please some suggestions if you have any

It's spooky but you're describing the same problem that led me here. My 11 year old son is bright, gregarious and coverses at an adult level. He has a high level of abstract reasoning and generally does well in science, math, and social studies. His major problems center around literacy and &quot;staying on target&quot;. The one complaint I hear at every parent-teacher conference is &quot;he's a pleasure to have in class and he always participates, but he just can't stay focused and doesn't complete tasks&quot;. I have explored charter schools in my area, the waiting lists here are absurd-he'll be college age unless his number comes up in the lottery. Private school-let's just say I make too much to get assistance and not enough to afford the tuition. Your daughter in law may be in the same place. I'm going to report card conferences soon and I'm going to DEMAND that he be assessed (for dyslexia et al). The last few times I approached the school counselor about this, she said that he wasn't failing enough! Check out all the resources available in your grandson's school district as well as private tutoring services. I'm trying to work out how to fit tutoring into the household budget if the school district fails me, or if homeschooling is actually a workable alternative. Good luck, Rhonda, and realize you're not alone.<br />
