My son would refuse to go to school and tell us he’s stupid and he hated himself and wished he was dead. The school and division had no supports for him and refused to have a psych consult for his reading. Six days before his diagnosis, the Inclusion Coach told us, “He’s just not ready to learn to read yet.” Then he was diagnosed as dyslexic. We moved him out of French Immersion, despite the school saying he could do it. His anxiety has improved, and he no longer wishes to die, but every day he knows he’s not getting what he needs. He’s smart and knows he is smart enough, but no one teaches to his brain.
