Hi, I'm new here. My son is 11 and in year 7 at school. the recently ran a LASS Lucid Analysis on him and have said it showed "well compensated dyslexia", which absolutely fits with the problems he has.
I home educated him from the age of 8 (year 3) as his primary school labelled him "lazy", whatever evidence I presented them with.
He actually had bacterial meningitis when he was 3 weeks old and I get the impression that this can cause all sorts of problems due to brain injury.
He's a lovely lad and very bright, but really does struggle with certain things. The good news is that the school are going to provide him with a laptop for class work and he will be able to use this in exams. They will also apply for extra time for GCSE exams in the next academic year.
His "label" has been a total relief to him, as it gives him reasons for the difficulties he has.
I guess I'm just here for general support when needed. Thanks for reading.
