How do we help our son who has Auditory Dyslexia be successful at school?
As with many public school kids who go years without being dianosed, he maintained an A average through middle school. It wasn't until he attended a private high school that we were alerted to his disability and they were quick to respond with support at all levels.
Now back in public high school, he is able to overcome most visual dyslexia problems with the help of books on CD thru RFBD and just reading things twice. However the auditory dyslexia is creating a communication disconnect.
Many public high school teachers bounce and skate through the class material and this can lead to information not being processed correctly and eventual problems with grades and self esteem. We understand the schools lack resources to deal with individual students and this seems like an issue that is ongoing. The bigger concern is the teachers who are not willing to take time to deal with students who do have needs--this after numerous meetings with the teachers and administration.
We are open to suggestions on how to best deal with the school administration.
