Question: How can I help my very academically behind child?

My son is going into the 5th grade. He was recently tested to see what grade level he is currently on and he is only in a 2nd to 3rd grade level in his subjects. He is going to a special school where ultimately I feel he needs to go for the rest of his school years, but financially I don't see that happening. When he was in public school, he fell through the cracks horribly! He did have and IEP and was in resource, but the teachers AND the principle told me that they did not know how to help my son. He has a medical diagnosis of Anxiety, ADHD and High Functioning Autism. I do not know how I can help him as far as school goes. He can't go to this school forever, but where do I place him and what can I do with him being so far behind??

I would research the local homeschool community and see if perhaps you couldn't provide a better learning environment for him than the public school. It seems to me this might help alleviate his anxiety disorder if you can homeschool. My guess is the anxiety is only going to become more severe if you try to keep him in an environment that is not right for him. Moms know our children, their needs, their limitations, and their interests more than anyone...be his teacher and help him progress from where he is. Find local resources within the special needs community and homeschool community. You are not alone.
