There is a lot of frustration involved with my very bright but struggling almost 16 yo. There isn't an official diagnosis but we are pretty sure he has this.
He has been working with his IEW instructor privately every single week in order to get through his World Lit. assignments. It is so frustrating and painful to get his thoughts onto paper. He wants to avoid everything that is difficult cause it is so frustrating and that frustration turns to anger at himself.
I have a 504 plan in place now due to the Irlen Syndrome diagnosis which will carry to college......if he makes it that far. This kid is way beyond his years in his intellengence, deep thinker, and thinks for himself. He is so frustrated with his brain not working when he wants/ needs it to in order to write or sometimes get thoughts out even verbally.
What can I do?
