I was wondering if anyone else has had a similar experience. DS has an EHCP and various guidance to support him. When in Primary where support was not so good, he would often comment that others had help but not him.
Now it is different and he often says he doesn't need help. He doesn't like peers knowing he needs help. He is at the lower end of the ability range, so we were pleased with the planned exam support. He is in year 9 and had one exam yesterday in a small room and needed to request reading of one question. When he came home after this exam which he found difficult he has decided he does not need help in the two he has next week. They are Maths which is his best subject, but due to his reading difficulties may need help with reading a question. This could be one of the few subjects he may get a grade in at GCSE. He cannot understand that having the help could help with his future. His idea of the concept of work and aiming to do the best he can, to achieve a means of financing himself, is something he just doesn't get.
We have informed school of his request and hope they are able to convince him of the benefit of support to achieve the best possible.
It is so frustrating working with school to achieve the best for him when he does not accept the help on offer. Has anyone else had a similar experience?
