I'm not sure where to begin.
My 8.5 yr. old ds also struggles with reading, handwriting and shoe tying (to name a few).
HI, and welcome!
Have you considered having him Evaluated for ADHD? A child doesn't have to be hyper to have it.
Just ordered the book from the library. Thanks!
Our ds was dx'd by a psychiatrist.
A couple thoughts: vision issues and gluten intolerance.
I have a child wiht special needs, very complicated special needs...no ADD dx tho~
