Re: What are you teaching your child

He knows and comprehends a lot more than he can put out in a timely manner, so he gets a bit frustrated with the work load, and I am concerned that his love of learning will be effected negatively.

Anyway, it's something suggested to me by his father (you should have heard DH's response to it, you are practically blessing it compared to what he said) as an alternative solution to an IEP that reduces the amount of work but not the quality of work.
Perhaps doing as another poster suggested and seeing if his teacher will lower the number of problems/assignment quantity but replace a portion of it with past work or even a "challenge" with work they haven't covered yet. It sounds like he needs more challenge and less repitition!
