You are so right! I had major problems getting my eldest sons's school to recognise that there was something wrong! Thankfully the secondary school listened and he was quickly assessed as having dyspraxia (which also involves difficulties with sorting, organising and recognising objects in the cognitive processes). then he was diagnosed after a 13 year fight with ADHD.
My middle one has dyslexia and my daughter has dyslexia, dyscalculia and is classed as having moderate learning difficulties (this is a new diagnosis so its still a bit raw).
At least the primary school did eventually get these two checked, but again my eldest was only assessed properly this year and he is off to secondary school in September and my daughter goes into Year 6 next year, so both of them have a delayed recognition of their difficulties. Does make you want to bang your head on the wall
