Teacher over Helping on tests

I just have to say that everyone on this board has always been very helpful and I am so grateful My ds has ADHD and extreme anxiety and is in a 5th grade inclusion class,he had the same teachers for 2 years and they where tough but fair.My son has a major learning disability in math and after years of fighting I was able to get him one on one resource room to help him with math.My ds is coming home with grades of 85-100 this year, while I would love to be excited my dh and I know what he can and cannot do.Ds has his tests read to him(since 2nd grade) so when he said the teacher helps him we started wondering how much.I will be meeting with the teachers for parent teacher conferences and I have no idea how to bring this up to them Please any advice would be great especially from a teachers point of view. My ds has scored at level one(lowest level) on the state test two years in a row and I'm afraid if he is over helped with his calss work he will not get the help he needs.Also these teachers give extra points for doing the study guide and even gave ten points of the lowest test score for doing some math worksheets.

Tell her that you are baffled at the sudden upturn in his scores. Have him try to do the same problems at home and bring the results with you. Say that you do not understand why he is able to do this at school if he cannot do the same at home. you may want to even give him simpler problems and see if he can do that. Ask what she sees and tell her that you would rather he fail on his own than to have others do things for him. Say that you want to know where he needs extra help and that isn't possible if the true extent of his abilities is not reflected in his work and tests.
