i hope im in the right forum. I have had suspissions about my 5year old son having dyspraxia for some time now. And todays i plucked up the courage to ask his teacher who also suspects it, however she thinks it is still only mild due to his young age and she said now is the best time to "catch it".
I am devastated and have had a good cry for him this morning. My heart is breaking at the thought of him looking at his whole class doing something together that he just cant manage.
Intellectually he is advanced beyond his years and he can memorise something after being told it only once. His reading is excellent too. However he is very clumsy. He looses concentration if not being thought on a one to one basis. And i feel his colouring skills are very young for his age.
I was looking for some advice really please. What do i do now? how do i start the ball rollin? is this something he might grow out of if i do all the excercises and stuff? or is this something that will affect him for the rest of his life?
I am willing to do absolutely anything and everything to help him.
Any advice would be welcome. Thank you.
