What the Expert Says:

The first step is to have your child evaluated by the appropriate professionals. Since he is over the age of 3, you can have him evaluated by the school system for any services he may need. You can contact your local elementary school to find out the process for getting these evaluations done. Depending on the type of delay he is experiencing (speech, cognitive, motor), he could be evaluated by a speech therapist, psychologist, occupational therapist, and/or physical therapist.

Once it is determined what delays he has, the school team will determine what therapies he should receive. Once he begins receiving different services, the therapists will be able to give you ideas of what you can also be doing at home to help your son catch up.

I would ask why he does not have interests in learning?  All children want to learn, but if the process is frustrating and they do not see results, many give up after struggling.  First, you need to find out if he is learning disabled or has a processing problem.  This can be done for free by your school district.  Call the district and request learning disabilities screenings, and tell them you suspect he is delayed. You can also request a speech screening, because speech therapy addresses receptive language (Learning) as well as expressive. (speaking.)

find out why he is delayed, then you can begin to address the issue.  Best of luck to you and your son.

Those who got a physical therapist degree and even psychology degree could help in your problem. Why don't you try consulting them to have your son examined.
