J had his end of term report today. It said, summarising and translating obviously, that he could not manage to concentrate for very long, that he still lacked elements that would enable him to read and write properly, that the one-to-one help he has been receiving is very valuable to him, that even though he obviously had good powers of reasoning, he got a bit lost in higher numbers... From the assessments of each skill, he is clearly much stronger in maths than reading/writing. Does this clearly show learning difficulties, I wonder? Would he be helped by medication for this sort of thing (I fear the answer might be yes...) Of course it is early days and he has only just turned six. But I'd be interested to know your thoughts.
