My son is 7 and in year 2. He is very immature for his age, and I was told today at school he is acting very childish, and saying silly words like pooh and bottom all the time, and today he shouted to someone walking down the road from the school yard that he could see their bottom, so he had to stay in the rest of playtime. I told his teacher I would have a word.
He is also behind in his writing and struggles with concentration. His drawing is also immature for his age.
He is in a special group in his class to help with his writing but I haven't noticed many improvements.
He also likes to talk all the time and make silly noises.
He struggles with learning to swim and ride a bike too. He struggles with following instructions for example he says where are my shoes so I say over there and point but he struggles to find them. I also have to tell him every day not to eat with his mouth open but it makes no difference. I have had his eyes tested and they are fine.
School won't test for dyslexia until they are in year 3, but that's only in September so I shall push for it then.
I am not pushing for a label but I do want to know so I can help him.
Is it worth a word with the senco at school? I'm grateful for any advice, OH thinks there is nothing wrong with him and he is just lazy
