My ds 7 has been under speech therapist since 3 as he was late to talk. He now speaks normally with a good vocabulary. however still under ST because teachers think he struggles socially - he seems to have friends / goes to houses and parties and plays well.

He doesn't like boisterous kids and there are quite a few in his year. the teachers say if game in playground changes my ds does not understand and is left on his own. my ds tells me he did not play cos he didn't like the new game.

He has been upset in class when not understanding the instructions. he is scared of doing things wrong. he told me he day dreams and has tried to stop the last 2 weeks and found his work a lot easier. the teachers think he cannot follow multiple instructions but he is okay at home. they say he is struggling academically (at let 1a/b in maths and phonics and comprehension but 2b in reading. the teachers want me to request an assessment and to say i am concernedabout his progress.

I think he has made a lot of progress this year
