What the Expert Says:

I know you want what's best for your son. It's difficult, sometimes as a single mom to make decisions- but know that you don't have to rely just on your own opinion. Seek out the knowledge of the school system (public or private) and ask for their assistance in getting what your son needs.

Don't take all the burden on yourself, ask for help.

I wish you the very best,

Kindest Regards,

Did you enroll him in another school?

Children need others kids to play and socialise with so if you are homeschooling him , take him to the park after 3pm and on weekends for interaction with other kids.

I am a great fan of work books evan moor, brain quest etc.  I don't know how old he is but  then start on kindergarten books and then work
 your way to his grade level.  Education.com has tons of free printables and downloadable work books ( $60 for 2 years).

He will need extra work everyday, not just the basics, you will have to use books or printouts to keep him constantly ahead of the work in school( ask his teacher for the subject area she will over each month and get a head start)

Hi

Lots of encouragement and praise is one of the ways you can help your son, and a curriculum that will provide bite size pieces of material so he can easily grasp concepts. I found Accelerated Christian Education, one of the best in the business, children use paces (small booklets) instead of hard-back books, a child can work at his/her own pace, and is an excellent curriculum for mastery. Hope this helps
