My child has mild dyslexia. “Workable” is what I was told. Just step back.

She'll be 10 in November.

I would have thought she's a visual-spacial learner, but she works well with the rote learning with WTM stuff. I would say she's a non-sequential learner based on the fact that she is awesome at mathematics and conceptual/abstract stuff, but weak in arithmetic. The abacus flummoxes her.

Math has been a real struggle. We started with Right Start because she'd been in a Montessori program, so we were under the impression that manipulates would be a good fit. Wall.

So, the real concern I have at this point is Arithmetic. I think she'll excel at Mathematics but that won't happen unless she can get the fundamentals down first.

She struggles with adding and subtracting single digits, but can look at complex patterns and figure out what comes next in the blink of an eye. In other words, her higher-order mathematical reasoning is there, but she can't – in her head - add 7+2.

Any suggestions?

Oh...and...We've been following WTM for history. And FLL (I switched to another curriculum and am now turning back to FLL because the other was too loose and she was floundering.). And WWE as far as we could without her completely melting down due to the writing aspect. That is getting a lot better.
