  1. He would usually be in a good mood but he did need some down time afterwards.
  2. I should add, the ODD appearing behavior issues were only happening at home. He attended a “hybrid” homeschool 3K & 4K program and got excellent marks all but 2-3 days the whole year for behavior. And his teachers always said he was attentive and obedient in class. The behaviors were limited to at home.
  3. Oh wow, this is so helpful. I am definitely open to evaluating him. My husband and my brother have ADHD and I know that apparently has some hereditary influence? He shows some symptoms of ADHD hyperactivity but he’s able to focus on things he’s interested in for a long time. Last year I was looking up some of his behavioral issues and they *somewhat aligned with ODD but those behaviors have started to dissipate. At this point, he seems to get along with non family member children. But I’m not sure how that will play out in later years. I myself have a lot of sensory issues but I have never bee
  4. Hello all, I was invited to this board by PeterPan. My oldest is 5. He turns 6 at the end of May. I did not want to register him as a Kindergartner this past August. But due to our state laws, my only options were to register with a homeschool accountability group as a Kindergarten student or notify the school district that we were waiving kindergarten. I have no intentions to put my children in public school, Lord willing. So I registered him as a Kindergarten student this past August. He has a speech delay and is just now interested in learning letters/letter sounds. His SLP t
  5. I asked her and she said at this point he only has articulation errors. But when he first started out, he had final constant deletion and she also has previously worked on his receptive language.
  6. Thank you! I will check this out as well. All 3 of them love when I read picture books. My 5 year old and 3 year old both ask questions and/or make observations while I read. The 3 year old mainly makes observations about the illustrations whereas my 5 year old asks questions about why so and so did this or that. I also have the five in a row curriculum and they seem to really enjoy that.
  7. I didn’t even know there was a learning challenges board. I will come over and check it out! 🙂 I will ask his therapist about those tests. At this point he’s speaking where strangers/non family members can understand 100% what he says. His SLP is currently working on “cleaning up” some of his blends. She thinks he might be dismissed at the end of April. I’m not sure if this is indicative of future comprehension skills once he’s the one reading, but if you read him a picture book, he asks questions about why so and so did this or that, he can predict what is going to happen next if I ask him,
  8. Wow I’ve never heard of this program! Thank you for sharing all these links. I’m going to check them out. :)
  9. He enjoys practicing/learning to print letters.
  10. I do have some of the Bob books and a few the McGuffey readers. That’s a great idea to switch it up if needed.
  11. Thank you for this advice! He is 5. He turns 6 at the end of May. He has a speech delay. He has been in speech therapy since he turned 2. But the delay caused him to not be where the “average” 2,3,4 year olds are with pre reading skills. I am working thru the “all about reading” PRE reading book now. But the AAR 1 program seems to have so many moving parts that I’m not sure how feasible that would be so I don’t really want to buy that if I don’t have to. I also have a child who will be 4 in May and I have a 2 year old. So I need something simple because my daughters are very much “in the mix”
