Need help

by Sara

My son Patrick has childhood apraixa I found out at age 4. He's in kindergarten now age 6 and they say he has austim and PDD. He's in iep half day and 2 days speech in school and speech 2 days out of school. Now they say he maybe mentally retarted. My problem is working with him I don't know how to. Patrick would rather stare right through me instead of doing his homework. I help him say words and then he will repeat but sometimes I feel like I'm babying him cause of the label. He's smart a little behind but nothing will stop me to get my son on track or his abitily. I know he can do it so I push him is it wrong??? How can I help him without feeling like I'm failing being a parent???? I feel so frustrated cause we can't work together, I just want the best for my son and I don't know how to do it???? Sorry just having a hard time with school work!!!

Keep trying

Hi Sara -

I know it can be very frustrating...
Have you tried talking to your child's teachers or therapists as to what they would recommend that would help him the most? They may have techniques that work the best.
Sometimes moms have to push a little bit, but you don't want to go to the point of frustrating him. Just read your son's body language - he will let you know if it is too much.
Above all don't give up - keep trying different things - you may find what works best for him.
