He's on the autism spectrum and has ADHD and dysgraphia. He'll work for his teachers, but home is not school and I'm not his teacher--he won't make the switch like his neurotypical peers will. Even at school, he only works when a teacher is directly assisting or closely supervising and he does a reduced volume of work. Not sure how any of that will work at home, but I suspect I'm going to be spending 8+ hours a day trying to help him learn. It's a really good thing that I don't have the kind of job that expects me to be working 8 hours a day from home!
You could be talking about my 11th grader. Alberta schools typically go to end of June. But are closed at least till September. On line learning is being set up, assignments will start to be handed out on March 26th. We shall take it one day at a time.n
