This is my first year homeschooling my youngest. She is in 6th grade (for only 3 more weeks...then 7th grade) and we just got her Iowa test results (standardized testing required in my state). She did very very poorly in reading/reading comprehension. This is an area she has always struggled with. She did very well in math and in grammar/vocab/punctuation. She didn't do as well in history and science and I suspect it has to do with the reading comprehension issue. I have worked with her on reading and reading comprehension all year. Although her test scores don't show it, she has improved. She does have a congenital brain injury that may be playing a part in this. She is also on the Autism Spectrum--very high functioning, so she takes things as they are stated, and that plays a role.
I am not sure what to do now. I don't want her to lose further ground. I am not very happy with our LA, Science, and History curriculum, but planned to stick with them for one more year (I already have it). I thought about trying to just supplement with a reading comprehension program, but am concerned that won't be good enough. Do I take her somewhere for tutoring, like Sylvan?
Lastly, I feel like I am failing her. I want her to succeed and do well. She has said all year that she is working harder and learning far more than she did in her private school. The Iowa scores tell a different story. I am upset and really need some support and advice please.
