OK I am a slightly worried nana. Grandson has been here in school for 4 years. First 2 he was suffering from glue ear and eventually after grommets he could hear properly. He is able to speak in French to people he likes. He is having difficulties in comprehending the written word and in dictae therefore. He is excellent at maths, art and sports.
We need to start him understanding words properly (conjugation of verbs is a nightmare). He is in a double age streamed classroom and the teacher just hands out worksheets most of the time with parents expected to pick up the pieces at the end of the day. He has had extra help with work at school but now there are no funds and quite frankly the psycholog seems determined to make more problems for him than solve them. (He does not like the psycholog and will not speak to him).
Are there any books or games out there for say 5 year olds learning French that I could buy, I have trawled through Amazon and other sites and cannot find anything suitable. Help would be appreciated please. We are not teaching him English at the moment as it may confuse him although part of me says that he really should learn to read and write in one language so that he gains confidence.
We live in Central Brittany and there are not many help associations here for children. I believe he has some of the characteristics of dyslexia (he cannot see words in his brain he tells me and he does not hold letters that well either).
I want to help him the teacher would like him tested but the psycholog will not test him and in fact we are thinking of removing him from CMPP altogether as he has been going for 6 months with no visible signs of progress it seems.
