Learning Problems

by Lisa Gordon
(Orlando, Florida)

My son was diagnosed with SID when he was four years old- he went through a year of occupational therapy. After that from Kindergarten - 3rd grade he was in therapy with the the school therapist.

Now he is in 9th grade(14 years old) and he is having problem in reading. He can't analyze or contrast what the author maybe saying. Everything to him is black and white- if it's not written down where he can see it then he cant infer what they are doing. This is causing him to fail the FACt for reading. I don't know if this is a part of the SID that happens when they get older. He stills bounces his leg and flaps his hands alot when he is studying. Please help if you can. I want him to be able to graduate from High school when the time comes.
