Challenging school behaviours, ADHD and dyslexia... advice please
This week has been a full on one for my oldest son. He is struggling at school with his behaviour. He is ADHD and dyslexic. The school is trying to support him with limited resources (at the moment they are struggling to get relief teachers, support etc.) We know writing is a trigger and his is literacy block, the teacher is trying to help him, even to the point of writing everything down to copy. He won't even try, tells the teacher I am not doing it, you can't make me, plus other stuff and in cases leaves the classroom. This has resulted in him losing his in class fun computer time. I have a meeting with the support co ordinator next week to discuss what way we can support him and will ask if he is able to get some in class support. Last year for a term he got 5hr per week. I am also noticing this behaviour at home. I ask him to do anything, it is pretty much no I am not doing it! You are not the boss of me! My concern is also him becoming rude, disrespectful to everyone and not understanding how dangerous some of the situations are. Eg running and hiding. I know the behaviours are more complicated, but I am struggling today. Has anyone had a child with these types of behaviours? If so how did you address it?
