My 10-year old son is dyslexic and has always hated school. He cried most mornings, most evenings and worried through the weekends and holidays. He was always poorly, had mouth ulcers, became incontinent. We battled the system until Xmas in year 4 when we pulled him out aged 9 after he said he wanted to die rather than go to school. He has improved his confidence but home schooling is not suiting our family and we would like him to return to school. He has trialled a different school for a week now, and the old patterns are returning. He cried after every session there and has now become ill and the incontinence is returning. He describes the work being 'really hard' but they say he is keeping up and is doing ok. He also says he feels dizzy and sick whilst doing the work. They are being lovely, but are unable to offer any specialist support. We do not know which way to turn. he feels like a failure. We feel stuck as we don't feel the system can cater for him, but he is bright and deserves the same chances as his peers. We really do not know what to do next, as we can't face the constant battle of school. Any advice/experiences greatly received please.
