Subject: LD and schools!

I am having some concrens about my 8 yr old son. He does have a IEP. I also, took him to the Pupil Project for testing. His dignoses is visual processing disorder, audio processing disorder, dyslexia. He is also, ADAH and has amblyopia . Anyways, school always dignoses differently under an IEP but, he is seeing an OPT, visual program at school plus extra help in the smaller class setting with an LD teacher. He was held back in "K" so, this year he is in first. I went for his IEP renewal a few months ago and they said he was coming along good and showing ALOT of improvments from last year. Well, his report card came home yesterday and there is an area of concern on almost every line. It doesn't reflect the progress I have seen nor what I was told. Is there other places for my son to get help for these learning disabliities? I don't understand if I'm missing something with all of this. Sometimes it seems like he is getting help other times I feel my son is being pushed back on the side and I'm being told he is improving at one moment then shown different at the end of a year when they decide to hold him back. Any answers to what or where I'm suppose to go from here would be great.

Can you post the raw data of test scores so that others might be able to point off you some additional suggestions that would be appropriate?

In additon, this web site might provide you with some assistance in understanding addressing dyslexia:

When the school provides you feedback regarding progress, you need to make sure that the measures are objective and measureable. Here is an excellent article that will help to understand why that is so important:
