I’ve been talking about this for the last week or so. Gavin’s been having problems in Math class. He gets frustrated for some reason and we haven’t been able to get him to explain exactly what’s going on.
We’ve spoken with his teachers and they assure us he’s doing fine.
Having said that, he’s losing behavioral points because of this frustration, so whether or not his teachers say he’s doing fine, clearly something is going on.
I sat him down after school today and recorded him (with his permission) explaining what happened today in Math class. While it’s still frustrating trying to talk to him about this, he actually did a pretty good job or explaining himself this time.
The reason I wanted to share this is because it’s important to understand how cognitive and communication impairment can impact a parents ability to ascertain what’s going on in to their child’s life. I’m not someone that feels entirely comfortable relying only on his teachers for vital information. Gavin’s perspective is really important.
This is why we try so hard to figure these things out.
