I just got a phone call from Philips very stressed teacher saying it's just not going to work, and Philip can not stay in her class. This is basically the 2ND time he has failed the first grade. We have some medical appointments lined up for him. The trouble is where can we send him to school next year. He is very delayed, in language and reading. He is catching up in math. He acts up in class, lies, doesn't bring home homework, copies off other kids work, and is sinking very fast! I work with him every afternoon, but he has a serious memory problem. You teach him something, and it's forgotten a minute later. The special education options in Germany are really awful! We talk with his teacher tomorrow, but she says no way can he stay...so what now? I'm really sad! We really need Gods grace and wisdom.
