Thanks for sharing your story. I must tell you that this is almost
exactly the story of my son who is now 19. His school years, elementary
and middle, were a nightmare. I began teaching in response to the
situation and continue to teach gifted and talented classes. Every year
when I do testing, and this year we used the Torrance, we identify some
LH/RSP kids as gifted.
Just so you don't give up, my son is now a freshman at the University of
California, Santa Cruz, excelling in writing and thinking and exploring
photography. A computer deals with many of his spelling problems, and
he has a lot of people proof for him. He loves school now, but it was a
long hard struggle and painful to see. Good Luck.
