Aspergers and education
Hi everyone - I have a wonderful son aged 9 who has been diagnosed with aspergers. His symptoms are mild but as a parent I find myself losing a lot of sleep through worringing. I'm very concerned because my son will be starting secondary school in 18 months but his writing and spellings is poor and I'm worried it is going to hold him back. The school have been very good and I've been trying to help at home but there just isn't any improvement. We are contemplating extra tuition but I'm not sure if this is a good choice or not. Any help and advice from the community would be appreciated
