Have you tried switching to elastic shoe laces? Then you don't have to tie them, you just sorta pull on the string and they lock in place.
Somebody posted a link to a strap on Alibaba, but I couldn't tell too much about it on their website. I actually bought some straps and buckles from Amazon, but that didn't work out so well. OTOH, I got impatient and didn't give it the time it needed, since a shoelace works fine for me. Now if I could just find a flat, wider shoelace, I'd be good to go. I also use Lock Laces from Amazon, so I don't have to use a knot, and they let me quickly and easily adjust it tighter and looser: Lock Laces, from Amazon. Maybe not the best solution, but it works for me.
Maybe we can talk K3D into adding a strap kit to his product line?
Lock laces. Link here if you're in the UK.
Lock laces. They're essentially really good shock cord. My feet swell a LOT from start of hike to end so I leave these loose and let the blood swell into them
I currently am wearing them with Vans Ultrarange mid boots but I have a different pair on my everyday zero drop shoes and they're the 🐝 knees for easy on-off

You are welcome! Very happy to help! :)
In my experience people in this sub are generally very helpful and welcoming, so don't worry and ask away at anything.
With the $8 you'll be saving I recommend you get these with your Zetrablades (if you're so inclined): [link]
These quick lacing system will give you very fine tune pressure control, let you feel extra support.
Good luck, welcome to the world of inline skating and let us know how it goes! :)
Highly highly highly super duper highly recommend that you get a quicklace system for those since they are soft boots. Here's the one that I own: [link]
Dude I have some shoes I hike in or run in that come undone even when double knotted. If had to do this every couple miles, it would drive me crazy! I've already been switching my shoes out to these:[link]
I feel your pain! Can you ask his parents to get these? They replace laces and make them slip on. [link]
I switch all my laces to Lock Laces([link]) and never have a problem. They're easy to lace up, adjustable, and comfortable. The only issue I have is sometimes when defending a rope climb, you can knock the gator clip (or whatever it's called off) but it clips right back on.
New wife would be simplest.
Seriosuly though, what about just getting a strip of velcro around it and pulling it tight when you put it away? Or you can try lock laces:
This is cool and all. But I switched to Lock Laces a few years ago. Haven't tied my shoes since.
I tuck in my laces in my boots, but I am highly considering these.
Since at times, the tie comes loose. But the extra laces and loops are still tucked in my boots sides.
Get some of these: [link]
I got some for my mom and she loves them (she's 84 and has trouble getting her shoes tied these days).
You can usually find them at any decent shoe store.
I completely agree that kindergarteners should not have homework. Studies show that homework has no beneficial effect in elementary school.
You could get him some Lock Laces so he can wear tie shoes.
I'm seriously about to buy some of those the next time my son grows into a larger size shoe. Because of his fine motor skills issues, he's always had problems tying things so he's never had tie shoes in his life. It's getting harder and harder to find velcro shoes that don't look horribly idiotic in his size.
Lock Laces, they are pretty awesome.

I use these laces
Asics Noosa Tri 13 for the win. Your son will love the colorway too, so parenting win as well.
Also, you can get him some lock laces for any shoe. They make transition a cinch.
Not specifically meant for this. I've been using a shoelace that I loop through the ring, then secure the two ends together with a Lock Lace.
That said, I just ordered this harness-ish thing from Amazon: iEFiEL Men O Ring Lifter, after reading someone's post that it worked for him, so I thought I'd give it a try. (Just don't be in a rush for it -- it's saying it's going to arrive between May 14th and June 7th, and I ordered it something like a week ago. The literal slow boat from China.)
That's great. I don't have arthritis, I'm just lazy, but I got these.
No joke...these are great for shoes you'd ride in: [link]
For shoes, I totally recommend lace locks. I buy them on eBay from China so I can have back ups. They come in all colors. That way she can have any shoes she wants and she can be independent in putting her shoes on. I use them because I hate when my laces come undone and I don't like how it feels when my shoes get too loose or too tight. Plus, they are reusable, so you can use them on other shoes. I bought something to help one of students with his pants and buttons. I'm looking for it now. It was like this but it wasn't like this.
Make sure when she gets older that she has time and a half or double the time for tests in a quiet testing environment for her accommodations. If she has more time and its a low pressure environment, she will probably do better. I had someone to read my tests for me (if I wanted) and a quiet testing environment in high school and college. I usually didn't want a reader. But the quiet environment was nice, because I could take my time and it was completely no pressure. They usually didn't check on me, so I could listen to my iPod too (which I wasn't allowed to do because it was considered cheating, but I don't consider listening to Meatloaf as cheating).
For tests where she has to write multiple choice, what you can try is highlighting a box for her to write in. Having a distinct place to write in helps sometimes. Sometimes with math (which will be hard for her) 4x4 graph paper will help her line things up. I've also used 3 or 2 line paper and highlight each line with different color highlighter to give a kid a visual cue of where to write. They sell highlighted paper. If it works. There is also raised line paper which gives guidance. Its interesting to write on. I've used it at a training.
For her academics, if she has a favorite color (who doesn't), I suggest getting her a pen or a pencil in that color. Let her do her work in that color. Get it as an accommodation. If writing in a pink sparkly pen makes her want to do her math homework more, who really cares if its in pink sparkly pen? Staples even sells colored binder paper. If writing on pink paper with pink sparkly pens makes homework fun, go for it. I had a student who would only do his writing with a yellow highlighter. It made it really difficult for me, but he wouldn't write with anything else. Who am I to complain at that point?
You're doing good by her. Just remember 80% is success in life unless you're learning to cross the street or identify bleach.

Most comfortable shoes I ever wore. We put elastic laces in mine and they are even more better...
Lock lace is what I use and I tuck the draw behind the leather loop at the back of my boots.
It is secured to my boot, since the previous laces can be undone, I do not need to tuck the excess draw of the stock laces into my boot/socks, generating discomfort, and this method is a simple slip on and off.
And the laces aren't prone to bind with the bike if loose and flowing. Any product like these is a good idea to have especially riding.
I use them for all of my exercise shoes. Besides never having to tie them, they also help in that your shoes are always at the right tension when you put them on. Here is my favorite kind:
