My difficult child knows the school work, but generally fails tests. We even tried having the teacher ask him the questions instead of him reading the questions. He still failed. In my family, my cousin (a difficult child) knew the work but always failed. He wound up dropping out of school. Back when he went to school, most learning problems weren't found. His daughter had the same problem. They found if the teacher asked her the questions on the test, she passed. Do you think it's anxiety in my difficult child's case? Anyone else's difficult child have this experience? I have a 504 meeting next week to see how he is doing in his classes and I want to address this situation with his teachers.
