Thank you for responding-DefinatelySmart.
A report that they gave me at one of the parent-teacher conferences stated:
Practices self help skils-snapping, zipping, buttoning- Needs Improvement.
Runs, jumps, hops- Progressing(Needs Support)
Controls scissors-Progressing(Needs support)
Bounces large ball and catches it- Progressing(Needs Support)
Their comments stated that: He does not have good gross or fine motor skills but does try to do his best. They also say he should be drawing and writing his name.
In response to runs, jumps, and hops-(does it all the time with me and sitter-I do not see any odd movements). To bounces and catches ball- he has a bit of trouble bouncing, but can catch, but of course not everytime. He does have trouble holding his pencil correctly.(My opinion on that is that he is having trouble determining which hand to use because he often uses both(ambedextris-I think)).
Concerning his behavior:
They say he does not complete lessons
Will not stand still or be quiet in line or in circle
Constantly making noises.
Will not follow directions (on occasion he will)
In response to that:
I know he is loud and pretty much has a sound effect for everything-but I work with him on using his inside voice at home. I am really unsure how they approach it. Their solution I feel is to pass him off on a shadow and they are insistant that I come about twice a week to be with him. He is in a five day program that is from 7:50am-11:30am. I feel that they have given up on him and because of his intelligence I think he feels that way too. He appears to be a little upset when school is mentioned to him but on some days he is raring to go.
This is all extremely stressful and I don't want to pull him out of the program but I think that they would love for me to do that and I think that some of the things they are saying he lacks that,that is their job to help him with that. I have been more than willing to do all I can,this is my child and of course I want to help him the best I can but they should be able to fill in the blanks with things that they are suppose to be experts in.
Again Thank You and I look forward to hearing from you again,
