Exclamation Re: My Stepson And His Learning Problem

you might try contacting your local school board and talk to someone in the the exceptional student departments and explain thae situation to them maybe they can expediate the screening process for the evaluations that your child needs. best of luck to you. my grand child has many of theses same learning problems she is in the exceptional student program she is in specail classes in her school she was screened therough the school . i understand your frustrations you must be insistant with the schools and contact the social worker at the school if you get no where callt he school board or go there and talk with a supoervisor as a taxpayer you have the right there is a program called no child left behind insist on it for your child this is for specail needs kids and a child with learning problems fall in that catagory please let me know how you come out

Re: My Stepson And His Learning Problem

Keep calling the school, keep bugging them. That is the only way you are going to get them to do anything. My daughter has some learning disabilities, and I am in her class all the time. I check over her work she brings home and if I find something that she is having trouble with, or that she couldn't do..I take it back to school and ask them what they are going to do to help her learn this. You HAVE to keep on them all the time.
good luck.

Re: My Stepson And His Learning Problem

Have you tried a neuropsychologist? One that specializes in learning disorders? you might talk to your doctor about it. The best way to get him help in the school is to have him diagnosed by a doctor. That will help you know where to turn next.
good luck

Re: My Stepson And His Learning Problem

Good for you!! Please don't take any of this personal. If he does have ADD, there are great meds and diets to help with this. You might do some research on the diet part now, and that may even help him. I know that low fat milk, and margerine are BAD for kids with ADD. I went to a great conference once with a leading doctor in the field of ADD. He needs to have whole milk, and REAL butter. it is important for him to get Vitamins A and D naturally. And these are only in WHOLE milk naturally.

take care and keep us posted!

I've got to interject here that this is one physician's point-of-view and is not accepted practice in the field. Most people, at this time, recommend getting vitamins A & D from other natural sources, not from saturated fats. There is a growing body of professionals who believe we need more polyunsaturated fats and Omega 3 oils in our diets. But, you don't hear many suggesting more animal fats.

I am a cynic, it is true, but I'd be willing to bet that this doctor has a book to sell.

Momof3mjt, I'm disagreeing with this doctor, not with you. I wholeheartedly support your encouragement of Melylove that a diagnosis of ADD isn't the worst that can happen. There are treatments available today.

Re: My Stepson And His Learning Problem

I was not implying that Milk and Butter is ALL he needs. But if ADD kids are going to have milk and butter, it should be real butter and whole milk. Margarine is full of garbage our systems don't need and can't really tolerate. Low-fat milk has had the vitamins D and A separated from it in taking out the fat, and has to be put back into it. Whole milk has these vitamins naturally without human help.

I am not offended by any means, everyone is entitled to their opinion, I am just making sure you didn't misunderstand me.
