Hi San

Hi Writers, sorry that I am replying now but I have been away for a while but now I am up and going again and ready to give you good advice!

Hope everyone is doing well!!

If he has been diagnoses with dyslexia you need to take him to an educational psychologist that they can help him with this problem. At home you can also try and do writing exercises with him. Go to an educational toy shop - they have got great writing games for children with reading/writing problem.

Good luck
