He started high school this year and immediately the issue has presented itself. He's having trouble keeping up with notes, teachers reading his work, his self-esteem as he compares himself to his peers, and a bias toward beautiful handwriting.
We're considering having him staffed or at least getting him on a 504 plan.
For contextual reasons here's some background: he's 14 years old, makes honor roll typically, and is taking all honors and one AP class this year. He goes to a high school for the performing arts and he's in the Theatre track. He adores the school, and I'm not concerned about grades as much as I am concerned about teachers making comments about his handwriting.
Any experience or thoughts?
