  1. I totally understand that feeling. Yes, we have definately had some steps forward and still a lot of steps backward but we just keep trying to put one foot in front of the other. But, the tutor has really helped because it helps her to be accountable to someone else and takes a bit of the pressure off of me. She actually was doing fractions last week! We spent so much time in division I didn't think she would move forward. She is also doing more therapy now, including speech therapy for cognitive rehab and they do work on memory which has been great and then also CBTi which is cognitive behavi
  2. Yes, I have an 20 year old African Grey parrot, but that is a general pic not her
  3. Hey there! I just wanted to come back and say we are having some success with school now! I hired a turor that comes to the house twice a week and that has been the best thing for both of us! She is doing modified school but multiple subjects and we are working on consistency and moving forward. She did just have her shunt placed last month and so far we have had a few issues, including an infection and the headaches are still there but they were reduced for the first week so I will remain hopeful. She is also doing an extended year so we will continue just plugging along, especially sin
  4. Because I will have even less say in what she is learning and what materials are used. We sometimes are not home and sometimes we do school at all different hours which is dependent on her health so I feel like having someone come to the house might just be harder but we may end up going that direction if I can't get things together to have a successful year.
  5. Sorry for the delay in getting back on, so much going on right now. I will try to answer a few questions that were asked She is with a charter school through the school district. We have been with them since we started homeschooling. I did leave at one point a few years ago , or actually they pretty much kicked her out and I tried to homeschool her by my self but I found it was quite challenging in dealing with the school side of things and the medical and I felt she did better with the charter then with me. She does have an IEP. I am not sure it does any good. She has had neuropsych test
  6. Well I still don't have this all figured out and we got more bad news, or maybe it's good news if it will help her. But she has to have another surgery. She is a complicated case and they now know that despite her high brain pressure she still has a CSF spinal leak, typically you don't have both. But, she does. I have math figured out and I ordered the grammar.. I would really like a video based program for Science and I still need LA. All the of the suggestions were denied by the school as they are not age appropriate for her which I don't get because she is so far behind. Depending on
  7. Wow....thank you everyone for all the suggestions. It has been a bad day and I need to try and catch up and read the suggestions. Quickly though I saw someone ask how old she is now, she is 16. We are currently still trying to work with our charter school which places some restrictions on what i can and can't do. I did take her out a few years ago and try to just go the route by myself but I found I was very overwhelmed and it was too easy to just not do work depending on what was going on. I find that she needs the accountability (to someone else) and also needs to know she has a purpose in l
  8. Thank you. I will take a look at all those suggestions tonight. Review of...not sure...she hasn't consistently done school in two years so I am shooting in the dark here a bit. Review of maybe things she might have learned in middle school then we progress or go back depending on what she remembers or what she needs. I don't want to overwhelm her, I just want her thinking about school, feeling confident and trying to do something each day along with the therapy and appointments that still need to happen. Most of the time she is lying down in bed but due to seizures that started recently I want
  9. I just looked at the LA program and that seems like a lot of teaching, I am looking for more review I guess at this point, some kind of small workbook she can work from, not sure that exists for writing. Going to do Easy Grammar Plus for grammar. Just something that keeps her learning and engaged each day is my goal, not new material right now. We are so hit and miss and doing school that I want her to feel confident again and more towards new material. I am not sure if that makes sense.
  10. Originally yes, whiplash while riding a horse in 2013, 2nd degree TBI when she was thrown from a horse head first into a corral rail in 2014, that lead to a diagnosis of Chiari Malformation (where the back part of her brain descended into her spinal cord), then a CSF leak (multiple), and now pseudotumor cerebri (which is high brain pressure) but we think she still might have a CSF leak. Along with a slew of cognitive diagnosis. But, she also had double vision start out of the blue in 2012 even before the injuries so we have been struggling in one way or another for about 6 years now.
  11. Hi, It's been a long time since i have been on, not sure if anyone would remember me. I have a 16 yo daughter who has had multiple brain injuries. We are going into her 11th year of High School but she has actually had 2 additional years of high school added so I have no idea what level that places her at but she is struggling. I need something for LA that has some writing and spelling. I don't need grammar. She really can't read books due to head pain but could possibly do audio books but she misses a large amount of school so I need something short and simple to just work on consistency and
  12. It's been a while since I posted anything. I need help trying to figure out good curriculum resources for my 10th grader, with an IEP and ongoing medical procedures. Right now and last year she was doing Acellus online. Last year was so difficult and she barely got any school done. She was going through a lot of treatment. I was leaning towards the computer school again because it is easy to have with us wherever we are. She has done school at the hospital (three hours from our home) as well as school at the Ronald McDonald House and sometimes at home too. She has a lifting restriction so

  15. Thank you again for the additional stories. I am there, I am ready and open to trying it but she has been in and out of the ER and I haven't had a chance to go get it and talk to them. I was already headed in that direction and now with the most recent ER visits I know it's the right choice. She has been having some intense crazy leg pain/spasm/cramps/tingling that has been going on all week and lasting for hours. Saturday morning (in the ER) it went on for 6.5 hours straight. Nothing they gave her would stop it and nothing was putting her to sleep which is what they were hoping for. She was
