Hello there, I can understand your concern, but to overcome your difficulties, first step is evaluation by a child psychiatrist or psychologist. He might be suffering from from intellectual disability, specific learning disorder and/or autistic spectrum disorder. Post evaluation, comprehensive management with a special educator, clinical psychologist and behavior management training for parents will be helpful. Good luck!
