Wow, this is a lo-o-o-ng one ! I wonder how Purple would respond if someone else had asked this question ?
I am really sceptical about the vlue of OT's, and wonder why so many teachers sem to drum up profitable business for IT's, either when no intervention is eneded, or when a child psychologost would be better able to help. Visual testing does make good sense. I was very bright at school, but started to struggle at one early stage, till a bright teacher noticed I was struggling to read what was on the blackboard. After an eye test, I got glasses and soared again, re-discovering with delight that grass was not a uniform green splodge, but made up of individual blades, and jerseys had individual stitches. And the rest is history ! :}
I don't hear anything that suggests any significant problem with the school itself. I wonder whether he is picking up on your anxiety and that of your husband, and amplifying that, as bright kids so often do. Relax, and see if thast doesn't help him to do likewise
