Welcome to ReachOut and thank you for making your first post. I am really sorry to hear that schooling has been challenging for your son. You mentioned that he is seeking the support of an educational therapist, are you able to tell us a bit more about what that entails? We would love to learn more about what the role of an educational therapist and how they can support kids struggling at school.
Sometimes young people turn to acting out in class as a stage or socially, and then there are some others who do when there are other things happening in their lives that may be overwhelming or that they are struggling to cope with. Has your son seen the school counsellor or an outside counsellor before to help make sense of what is happening at the moment?

What are your thoughts? Check back in with us when you can
