Frustration and anxiety
My 7 year-old son has SPD, is performing at or above grade level in reading and math, and is inconsistent in his writing skills(sometimes is can't do and other times, won't do). He also has orthopedic issues (tightness in hips, hamstrings, and postural issues). His frustration with schoolwork is increasing. He says he has trouble doing his work; completing things, feeling overwhelmed with work and just tries to escape into a book. He has a 504 for his orthopedic issues. We have had him evaluated by the school, but they simply say he is impulsive despite reports from OT, neurologist, and other doctor. They say he needs to move around more than peers, but then say he is fine. How do you support the frustration and anxiety and get the school to understand what is going on? We have a kid in tears, which is heartbreaking.
