My year 9, 14 year old son works reasonably well at school but when it comes to homework and assignments well forget it. The let down or cooling off that happens when he gets home simply does not allow him to get back into learning mode. He doesn't know how to start, gets upset when he gets stuck in Math, spends way too long on something that only needs a few minutes and mental blocks almost always end up in tears for all us. He works well with his tutors, English and Math but thats only 2 hours a week. He is now expected to do 1-1 1/2 hours per day. As the expectations and demands rise at school, the marks are starting to slide down rapidly. What happened to my A grade student of Primary school? No school in their right mind is going to exempt him from homework. Is there anyone out there that can help him with issues like time perception, executive function etc ?
