  1. My DS just took his today! He didn't finish a lot of sections so we'll see how that works out. I'm just proud of him for doing it. It was his first test ever too. I realized that maybe a lower stakes test might have been a better option but he felt like it went well so I guess I haven't traumatized him!
  2. I wanted to update this, as we have some promising developments and it may encourage anyone else who is trying to make PS work. I was able to email DD's teacher the week before school, and she even called me! She was fine with whatever informal accommodations we wanted to put in place while we work on the 504. The school actually followed up like they said they would! They talked to DD's new teacher and she agreed that DD's writing is not indicative of what she knows. They are starting in class intervention, which is at least something. We are going to meet soon do discuss the 504. I wanted to thank everyone for the help!
  3. Ok so he's on that math schedule and it seems to be similar here. (for acceleration)
  4. Yes, she was "dismissed" I'm not opposed to rechecking, her VMI was low normal
  5. So that was supposed to say “isn’t beautiful.” her handwriting is fine but not anything amazing. she did do VT!
  6. No, I haven’t gotten into any of that yet. Like mind mapping?
  7. It’s the organizing thoughts and getting them onto the paper part. Fine motor is fine. Her writing isn’t beautiful but it’s perfectly legible. She has a hard time staying on the line so I bought her some raised line paper to help. eta: that was supposed to say “isn’t” I really need to start proofreading when I reply on my phone
  8. I'm going to do this, thank you! I bought the multiplication book from TWTM press but never got around to it this summer. (There were things to copy and games and it just always got pushed to the back burner.) Plus she was tutoring and I was trying to not pile on. She only has 2 weeks until school, and she actually likes math so I think I will get those books and see how far we can get. Her state testing came back exactly like these scores BTW, both in language arts (spelling was bad) and math facts on math portion were low. So I feel like I can trust all these tests. She's consistently low in the same areas everywhere.
  9. She has to work very hard to be not drastically below in the weak areas. Also, it's one of those things where it seems like it's not horrible now, but we can see down the road where more writing is expected that the wheels may fall off.
  10. Yes, I read the Dyslexic advantage and subscribed to their newsletter. Agree about the self esteem and it seems to have gotten better since she has gotten a diagnosis.
  11. Thats good to know! Although I honestly don’t have the first 27k to get her started. I went back to her achievement testing to see where exactly her reading was and it looks like she’s above grade level. I can definitely see the dyslexia in her scores.
  12. I meant to quote this earlier, but thank you for this post, especially the bolded.
