Near Point--Far Point

Who knows what the trouble really is???  Attention difficulties--glasses sitting on the tip of his nose--having to turn to the far right for each new letter copied from the board???

In the meantime, homework needs to be copied each morning.  We've tried having him sit directly in front of the chalkboard, practicing abbreviations for frequently-used words, and even (gasp) having a classmate copy the assignment for him.

Today we borrowed the assignment book of fellow student who writes quickly and neatly, then copied the work near point, as shown in the photo.  Still lots of pauses to look around the room between each letter but he was able to finish the task with a few minutes to spare and also retrieve a book to read from the classroom library.
