I don't know what to do to help him do better in school. His teacher says that he probably will need to stay in kindergarten another year. We talked about it, but he doesn't want his friends to leave him. What should I do? I'm desperate!
If you have difficulty getting good information, contact the toll-free numbers for the Learning Disabilities Association of America (1-888-300-6710) or International Dyslexia Association (1-800-ABCD123) to see if they have someone in your area who can help you through this process.
Just repeating the grade without any change in services rarely helps a child with the difficulties you are describing. You're doing the right thing by searching for better answers for your nephew. Good luck!
