Pediatrician, Neonatology 's  Response
are you on regular checkups with pediatric neurologist and physiotherapist?
Is he able to talk?
Discuss with both of them about his school phobia so that they can assess whether he needs special school.
Physiotherapy is the most important for him.
You have to keep on trying with him to stimulate to read and follow your advice.
All the best.
