In the meantime, you can have your son privately evaluated by an occupational therapist (keep the bill, the school will most likely end up paying for this evaluation). The OT may want to do an observation of your child in the classroom. Later on, it sounds like the teachers should have a consultation about what to do (and not do) with kids who have motor difficulties. You bet your son must be feeling frustrated by this. Write a note to the teachers, and tell them not to make him write as a punishment until you have gotten the results from the OT evaluation. Send a copy of your letter to the principal.
