J got his end of term report the other day. My translation: J has understood the principle of combining sounds but his decoding of syllables is slow. J needs time to decipher and still has to refer to the class letter display. Complex sounds have not yet been well mastered. Progress is slow but in place and is linked to J's willingness to work or not. Up until the last half of the last sentence, all well and good and then... you just feel, it's all meaningless, they haven't understood a thing about ADHD, still don't take it seriously... He has real reading difficulties. We read together every day, morning and night, facilitated by a sweet at the end of each reading session and I have a clearer idea of what is going on. The more we do it, the better he gets but really reading is a major struggle for him at the moment. Neuro-psy evaluation is this Friday... hopefully it will tell us more. ADHD and reading difficulties go hand in hand, I have learned.
