I'm not sure where you live and each state has different divorce laws, but when it comes to the well being of the children, most courts look at what is in the best interest of the child/children. If you can show and prove that there are issues that are not being addressed by the mother, then you should be able to get some backing from the court. You'll have to be able to prove it though, which means you'll likely need to have the child evaluated by a professional who has the appropriate credentials and can support a diagnosis. It could be dyslexia or any multitude of other learning issues. If the Mother is in denial or just trying to be in control of the situation, it will not look good for her with the courts. This is no different than having a child that is clearly sick and not taking it to the Dr.
On another note, just for your own peace of mind.....
I have experience with a child who had learning difficulties and getting her the proper help at an early age was vital to her success in life. She is now 28 years old and a teacher with a masters degree as a dyslexia therapist. There's no doubt in my mind, that if she had not gotten the help she needed at a young age, she would not have been able to be where she is today. When a child doesn't get what they need early enough, they end up just being lost when it comes to structured learning. Help your son now or you'll both be paying the cost for the rest of his life.
