Because me & his teachers are at a loss.

He is in Year 5 & there have always been big issues with writing. He can't make choices & can't think what to write about.

With coaxing and support and being led step by step along the task he can produce done nice work, or if its about a subject he's into like Mibecraft.

However yet again in tests he was given a Long Writing task ( about a hot air balloon ride) & at the end of 45 mins had only written the title.

He said he didn't know what to write as he's never been on a balloon ride so didn't know anything about it. A couple if years ago he had a massive tantrum over A writing task to do with having visited somewhere in holiday because he said he'd not been on holiday (he had but couldn't remember)

We suspected Aspergers but 2cahms visits & a private ed psych visit later they say he does not demonstrate the characteristics.

We're at a loss.
