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!!!
