Educational psychologist and senco
I have a 10 year old son that has been having problems since he started school he did have bronculitus when he was a baby and also stopped breathing 5 times,he has had a educational psychologist assessment done 2 years ago and was basically told that because my daughter is disabled I'm to blame for they way my son is,we moved him to a new school 1 1/2 years ago and found out that he has mild dyslexia while being assessed by a senco,we have taken him to the doctor recently regarding tics and found out he also has mild torretes,they doctor has asked us to speak the the senco and state to them that he wants a educational psyc and a community pediatrition involved,my son is so far behind at school due the difficulties that he has,he can hardly read word or spell any words even 3-4 letter words that are quite simple to spell,he is also so figity and can not sit still he is always moving around, when ever we say to the senco regarding our worries we keep being fobbed off and they are refusing to do the referal even with the doctors orders plus the school never picked anything up with him at all the previous school had noticed the dyslexia,we are stuck on what to do as we know my son has other problems than just his math and English that he struggles with but like I said they school do not seem bothered regarding our concerns do you have any advice on the next steps that we could take thank you,sorry about how long this is,I find it easier to talk to people than write x
