  1. Music (sings in a choir) Loves art Visually based Kinesthetic based Loves YouTube Listening to learningally books Imaginative narrations She has issues with correct expressive use of morphemes, difficulty comprehending grammatical rules, ability to define word and linguistic fluency. Susan Barton said the language issues stand in the way of this being the right program.
  2. My 8 year old daughter has dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, dyspraxia, auditory processing issues, sensory issues, ADHD, speech language issues and visual processing issues. I am overwhelmed. I have a background with children with disabilities but I am overwhelmed because of the emotional aspect of this all. I have come to the realization that she is a severe to profound dyslexic (double deficit)with a constellation of challenges. She has left right discrimination issues, visual tracking, working memory issues and phonemic awareness. Her fluency is poor at best 52 CWPM for rehearsed text and worst 32 CWPM on novel text. Some days I think she is learning to read well and some days she is guessing, reversals etc. WHAT SHOULD I DO? My math curriculum works but AAR and AAS do not seem like enough for the learning to stick at this point. She learned some words (233 fluently) but we hit a wall. This is what I have done: OT for 2 years + school OT SLP for 3 years + school SLP Vision therapy for visual attention 6 months Brain beat 2 months Pulled her out of school to homeschool her: 100 easy lessons (dumped it) Saxon 1 (dumped it no number sense) All about reading 1-2 (started 3) All about spelling 1 (started 2) Math-U-See Alpha (started Beta) Earobics step 1 Choir (with music instruction) Art class Theatre class Dance class Lots of audio books on Learning Ally Handwriting without tears (I am a COTA)

    I would like to buy a set of Math U see Manipulatives. The prices online for these manipulatives are too high.


  5. I am considering Dyslexia Center of Ga. They state in 40 lessons that they can help kids with dyslexia advance years. I am skeptical. What do you think? Is this Fast forward, Lindamood bell, Handwriting without tears repackaged??? Any advice? I am desperate for help! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I have a child with dyslexia and dyscalculia. She is being homeschooled by a tutor using an OG based curriculum. Do you have any suggestions for apps to support her learning? She just got an iPad mini as a support to her schooling for reading, math and even science and social studies. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. We have completed 9 sessions of brain beats and 5 more to go. I have to say it is a good program. It is complementary not a miracle. It is worth a shot though. I will give you a true complete review when she (LD and ADHD) has completed it. My son is also completing it (neurotypical).
  8. 4 days into brain beat and I can see how it improves focus and attention as well as rhythm. It is brain training in this area. It is not a magic bullet but a way to strengthen the brain. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. My child is on medication, and it is not enough. Brain Beats comes with headphones, button that attaches to a glove and system attachment. They have a 60-day money back guarantee. We are on day 3 of 14. It is too soon to tell a difference. After this, I may try the at-home neurofeedback. My child has double deficit dyslexia, dyscalculia, dyspraxia, dysgraphia, adhd combined type, speech language issues and hypotonia. We need to try and keep trying as all of you.

  10. I bought brain beats which is an IM product. It was $250, and I am sure it does not do as much as IM...but for me it was worth the gamble. Just another option. You can have up to 5 people on it so you may split it with a neighbor or use it with the whole family. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  13. Ok, I am in the "throws" of Webster's Blue Backed Speller. DS has the syllabary down except for G and C which we review. We are going to start Table 4....I hope I am doing this right. He gets about 75-80% right except some of the exceptions (c with a sound of s and doubling an e or doubling an s). Somehow I feel like I need to be teaching him some rules to go along with the spelling. Advice? Am I going too fast? Am I on the right track? Elizabeth, do you consider 80-85% mastery? I saw on your site the spelling rules for Blend Phonics. Do you suggest I use that? He is 5.5. Tips?
  14. 1. Should I teach my son the long vowel and short vowel sound of "ba be bi bo.."? If not, why? 2. How do you know whether your child is proficient with the syllabary? Any clues or advice? I review the syllabary with him, and then we play "how do you etc. " Is that what I should be doing? 3. Anything I should look out for? Anything I should guard against using the syllabary?
