My son is seventeen years old, a long story about dyslexia, oral and physical dyspraxia and auditory processing disorder. After seven years plus at dyslexia action he never finished the course level two. Well now he is doing his a levels in chemistry, biology, geography and psychology. He has a health, social care and education. His statement was a band two. He is supported with a reader and writer at college full time.
It has been a battle.
What has helped
Being a warrier.
Always having enough evidence for the local authority and threatening mediation and taking them to a tribunal. It costs the local authority thirty five thousand pounds to go through this.
sport for self confidence. My son is in team gb development team.
Kids, used to help, but they not do not believe in taking risks. Very much in with local authorities. Thankfully we had a maverick advocate from kids.
I have gained five stones and probably am his carer.
No one really gets it.
