So I have this student who has been a complete mystery to me. He has add and is on terrible meds that make him "zombie like." Mom is aware of the issues with the meds and he seems to finally be getting used to them because the "zombie like" behavior is fading away. All the while, he has struggled with test taking skills where he rushes through things, and he also has problems with reading comprehension, sequencing events, and finding the main idea. In addition, I tutor this child. It has just dawned on me that he may actually have a receptive language problem. I am not a certified special ed teacher, but I am realizing that he is showing some signs (not being able to express himself and not connecting with the text what so ever). I guess I am embarrassed that I am just realizing this in Nov. The add may have thrown me off. Any suggestions on how to relay to his mom that he should be tested for this? Any suggestions on how to work with him in reading?
