My son is in third std. He has Dyslexia. He keeps a time table and is able to do the chores by himself.He is now friendly with his classmates even though he does not have a constant friend. He is very interested in science. Trivia about space, ocean, earth ,nature , working manuals , alignments and a lot. And of course TV and cptr games.
I have some other areas where he struggles and I don’t know how to handle them. Please give me your idea so that I can help him out more efficiently.
1. His areas of interests are so vast I cannot point out in which area is he really gifted.
2. He used to enjoy drawing and legos very much and is good at it. Now his ideas are much bigger and he doesn’t want to do it because he cannot complete it the way he wants it. He doesnt seem to be pleased with himself no matter how much we appreciate him. He also seems to be worried becoz his friends told him that his drawings are not that good. How shud I tackle this?
3. He is very interested in books . Small books and comics he reads himself. But other books like Harry potter, secret seven etc. he wants me to read them to him. He can comprehend them very nicely . Should I read to him or should I insist that he read by himself?
4. Some times he gets bullied by his van mates. Every day he has to run about for a seat becoz the boys wont allow him to sit along with them. Now I have asked the van driver to give him a permanent seat. Is it okey to interfere in such trivial matters ?
If you think this is ridiculous please take it as whining of an ignorant parent. Otherwise please help me.
