  1. After 14 years of debilitating Rheumatoid Arthritis, I did a free seven day trial of The Engine 2 Seven Day Rescue. It worked! I'm off all medicine and my blood work is no longer RA or sed rate positive. https://engine2.teachable.com/p/the-engine-2-seven-day-rescue-challenge. Since felt better in just 7 day, I continued eliminating meat, daily, oil, and processed food because just one serving of that stuff makes me feel awful. https://plantbasedinstantpot.com/about-kathy-hester/ https://healthyslowcooking.com https://www.nutmegnotebook.com/plant-strong/
  2. https://www.amazon.com/Ultimate-Vegan-Cookbook-Your-Instant-ebook/dp/B01J1EWRGK/ref=mp_s_a_1_3?adgrpid=57148675438&gclid=Cj0KCQjwi43oBRDBARIsAExSRQEng9ixM8jW-v_6se7ssEOCRXyKIk7qJDpSE6A5ujNrgQ35vdvkBFEaArOcEALw_wcB&hvadid=274735409422&hvdev=m&hvlocphy=9033869&hvnetw=g&hvpos=1t1&hvqmt=b&hvrand=7332338178112016393&hvtargid=kwd-376258068174&hydadcr=21529_10176545&keywords=kathy+hester+instant+pot&qid=1560547130&s=gateway&sr=8-3 This is the best vegan cookbook I’ve found. Usually I like one or two recipes in each Instant Pot cookbook. But I like most of the recipes in this cookbook. She has tons of recipes on her website. She has a great slow cooker website and cookbook.
  3. The whole food, plant based, no meat, no dairy, no eggs, no oil, no processed food diet works on autoimmune, diabetes, heart disease... 1) My kids follow: Book - The Starch Solution: Eat the Foods You Love, Regain Your Health, and Lose the Weight for Good! Kindle Edition by John McDougal https://www.amazon.com/Starch-Solution-Regain-Health-Weight-ebook/dp/B007PF7MGS/ref=pd_sim_351_18?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=APA0A3CXQ24DVME8HZP5 $9 i found the McDouggal’s Starch Solution to be the most lenient of these three plant based programs. 2) My husband follows: Book - Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease, Kindle, Dr Esselstyn $11 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000SEK74M/ref=dp-kindle-redirect?_encoding=UTF8&btkr=1 3) I follow Reading The Engine 2 Diet: The Texas Firefighter's 28-Day Save-Your-Life The Engine 2 website has tons of success stories, a Facebook page, free recipes… There are other plant based programs. -------- I recommend 1) watching the Forks Over Knives documentary on Netflicks or Amazon (Forks Over Knives Presents The Engine 2 Kitchen Rescue with Rip Esselstyn) 2) Movie - Eating You Alive https://www.eatingyoualive.com/view/ (I saw theater) 3) Upcoming Movie - Game Changers (world class vegan athletes) http://gamechangersmovie.com Best wishes, Timberly.
  4. I am so sorry about your family’s Alzheimer’s disease. For health reasons, nine months ago I switched to a plant based, no oil, whole food diet. I started out by trying the Engine Two Seven Day Diet. In just seven days my autoimmune and broken neck issues were dramatically improved, so I’ve stuck to the diet. Three weeks ago my husband and kids went plant based, no oil or artificial ingredients. Their anxiety and ADHD improved dramatically. I’ve stumbled onto many articles and podcasts talking about plant based helping with Alzheimer’s Disease. Dr Lisle and Dr Bernard speak on this issue. In case you’re curious, here’s a link with some info. https://evolvingpast.com/podcast/plant_based_apporach_alzheimers_neal_barnard/ Warm wishes! Timberly
  5. Nutmeg Notebook's recipes fit your gluten/egg/refined sugar/plant-based description. I love her whole food, plant based, no oil... recipes. http://nutmegnotebook.com/recipes/plant-strong/
  6. I just edited my original post to say it's not CoWriter! that DS13 has been using, it's Read Write For Google Chrome. Please go to thread #1 for more information.
  7. I don't know how to run my DVD player and am resistant to learning new technology. But I find CoWriter! intuitive. It reads PDFs. It has text to Speech and Speech to Text for Word documents, Facebook, emails, blogs... It works with Mac or Windows. You can take a picture of a flyer and it'll read it. It'll help you post a comment in your online newspaper's website. It has millions of data banks so that if you're writing on Tom Sawyer you can choose lots of data banks on that subject. This makes it's easy for CoWriter! to make predictions in your text. If you don't know a word, click it and it will define it or give a simpler synonym. My DS13 is profoundly dyslexic. He had single digit rapid auto naming, working memory, and phonemic awareness. He has a single digit processing speed. Yet he has a gifted IQ. He has Developmental Motor Disorder/Dysgraphia so badly, that despite years of therapies, just writing his name still results in lots of broken pencil lead. He can't use a pencil to do his Pre-Algebra. Because of severe trouble with directionality, it took him two years of daily practice to learn to type 10 wpm. Just learning to type "F" and "J" took a year, and those are the keys with nubs. And his name begins with one of those letters! It's been six years now and he's up to 25-30 wpm. Yet dyslexia gets in the way of him being able to type his thoughts. He's been doing Barton for four years. He just started Level 7. He did 14 hours a week of Barton for three years, working for 10-20 minutes at a time. Level One about killed us both. Once he hit Level 5, he switched to just one hour each school day. He went from being the 9 year old that two neuro-psychs said "Not even Orton Gillingham will help this kid.", to him now reading accuratley and fluently. He recently had a third neuropsych eval and the evaluator asked me if he could refer patients to me because he'd never seen such improvements in test scores. Thank you Barton, Ronit Bird, Handwriting Without Tears, and Math U See. But unless he's reading below his grade level, reading is exhausting to him. And he certainly can't read material that is at his IQ level. He's an extreme case and has had a rough road. But he's resilient, a fighter, an overcomer, and a comedian. CoWriter! is letting him FINALLY get his amazing thoughts onto paper. He speaks and it turns it into texts. It reads tough passages so that he can work at his high IQ level. It gives him independence. It makes him happy. When my son was 9, I bought Dragon for Windows. We found it too difficult for a kid with issues as severe as his. When he was 10 I bought Dragon for Mac and for whatever reason, we had nothing but problems with the software. But I think he might want to use it when he's in college. My son spent maybe an hour watching the videos on this page: http://donjohnston.com/cowriter/. Then he started using CoWriter! on his MacAir and iPad - without any help from me. After an hour of using CoWriter! my son asked if he could now do a live, online literature classes like his big brother. Because he loves classical literature, he has been listening to hours of it each day since he was four. He now wants to engage with his peers to discuss books. But he couldn't do that without something like CoWriter! to make an online class possible. I don't know if CoWriter! will work with online class platforms, but I hope so. I created a free trial account and briefly saw something about $4.99/month. But don't quote me on that, because I was distracted at the time that I glanced at that price.
  8. When my DS was 10, he used Dragon for a few months. Today I got him CoWriter!. He finds it to be effortless, whereas Dragon was not intuitive for him. http://forums.welltrainedmind.com/topic/667122-cowriter-app-looks-like-a-life-changer-for-my-ds13/
  9. Student can use one device to work on Microsoft Word, Gmail, web browsing, GoogleDocs, blogs... And then pick up later, using another device. Co:Writer Universal includes: • an app for iOS – compatible with iPad, iPhone, MacBook Air... • an app for ChromeTM – compatible with Windows, Mac, and Chromebook platforms • an extension for ChromeTM – compatible with Windows, Mac, and Chromebook platforms • a desktop version – compatible with Mac and Windows operating systems http://donjohnston.com/cowriter/
  10. Co:Writer Universal only works in the Chrome browser. We have a Chrome browser on our MacBook Air.
  11. $4.99 per month, per child. But I got it for free through our brick and motor school district. We homeschool full time and don't use their services, but since my son has an IEP, he gets free access to the app.
  12. Edited on 1/25/2018 Remember when I mentioned that I'm lousy with technology? Well, I just got back from a technical training session and found out that my son has been using the Read Write For Google Chrome extension, and not CoWriter! Yes, CoWriter is the predictive text piece of Read Write For Google Chrome, but it’s only one piece. I feel so badly for confusing you guys by giving the wrong app name. Tech support apologized for having us watch a Don Johnston CoWriter informational video instead of this Read Write For Google Chrome informational video And he suggested this page for purchasing Read Write For Google Chrome: https://www.texthelp.com/en-us/ And I found out that they didn’t load the “take a photo of a worksheet and then type directly onto the worksheet†extension. Apparently that’s an option, but we don’t have it. We do have the option to take a photo of a flyer and have the extention to read it, define words on it, create a list of vocabulary words from it… So DS13 has been using Read Write For Google Chrome, which has: -study skills tools (highlighting tools and citations and bibliographical information -screenshot reader (text reader for inaccessible text or software -text to speech (audible directions, correct speech samples, editing tools, text read aloud) -talking dictionary (dictionary, editing tools, thesaurus, vocabulary support -picture dictionary (dictionary, editing tools, pictures/symbols, vocabulary support) -vocabulary list builder (vocabulary support) -word prediction -speech input (oral responses, voice recognition software, writing assistance) -voice note (audible directions, correct speech samples, oral responses) -annotations (audible directions) -simplify pages (reduce a wikipedia page to just the text without sidebar lists) ---------------------------------------------- Original post: Just found this today and can't wait to try it. It integrates mind mapping, phonemic spell checker, text to speech, speech to text, dictionary, photos for vocabulary words... This ten minute video does a great job of explaining what it is https://drive.google.com/file/d/1thzqR-XF88ftzEX9Wgwshjiz6PgFT0Az/view http://donjohnston.com/cowriter/ There’s only one Co:Writer! Only Co:Writer Universal gives students access to the most powerful word prediction on their favorite devices (Chromebooks, iPads, and Mac/Windows desktops), over 4 million Topic Dictionaries, built-in speech recognition in Google Chrome, and incredible privacy-safe data collection. Integrates across Google, iPad, and Desktop Whether on iPad, iPhone, Chromebook, or desktop, your students will have access to their favorite writing tool! Preferences and Dictionaries are stored in the cloud, so your students can access their personalized supports from anywhere, on any device—even offline. Co:Writer Keyboard for iPad Co:Writer Universal includes a keyboard for your iPads (iTouch and iPhones too)! Use it anywhere you write like email, websites, and Google Drive. It works just like Apple’s stock keyboard, but the prediction is much better and it supports Topic Dictionaries and data collection. The data fully integrates with Educator Dashboard. See it for yourself in this quick 2-min video. Speech Recognition Co:Writer word prediction and speech recognition now go hand-in-hand to cover the widest range of student needs. It’s built right into the Co:Writer Universal Chrome Extension, so students can speak their responses in Google Drive, email, and websites then go back and edit with Co:Writer! See Co:Writer’s built-in speech recognition for yourself in this 2-min demo. Supports Vocabulary in the New Standards Over 4 million Topic Dictionaries supply vocabulary from every college and career-ready standard from Atomic Structure to Leonardo da Vinci. This helps students write with more academic and topic-specific vocabulary. See how Co:Writer supports vocabulary in this 3-min video. Proves Outcomes with Data Co:Writer data gives you a level of fidelity of implementation that you’ve never had before. Quickly see how much students are writing and their vocabulary usage while protecting student privacy. See Co:Writer Data in this 3-min video.
  13. My city has three centers that tutor using Barton and MUS. I was shocked to find out they accept Federal Blue Cross and TriCare (military).
  14. The above are the history books we have. My kids have been reading them in the bathroom or at bedtime since 2013. Thank you Grandma for the fabulous gift! I haven't seen the science books! Christmas gift idea for sure.
