  1. Research echolalic too. Could be his conversation is based off of something he heard?? And so he’s trying to mimic the exact rythum and intonation of the original source of information he’s trying to reconvey. My son is notorious for that. Has been from about 3/4yo to now 9. It has wained drastically though since he was 6.
  2. I suppose if you took him anywhere, it’d be to a SLP. If he had a recent injury or something or you suspect an underlying medical issue causing the problem then I’d go to the doc too. So, I would study the likely suddden source of why he’s stuttering. New stress? Major change in the home? New routine? Something to consider....My son, who’s long had speech delays, then speaks pretty regularly for the last 3 plus years suddenly in the last 8 months has gotten wayyyyy more articulate about how he speaks and someone listening in may think it’s stuttering too. It’s not all th
  3. I’m curious if using LearningRx or something similar has been helpful for any of your children on the autism spectrum to increase processing speed, auditory processing delays, memory, etc? (I’ve done Diane Craft’s stuff in the past and it didn’t help really at all.) Thanks! Sherra ~ HSsquared

  5. https://brokenbrain.com Episode 1 started tonight! They are talking about the whole body mind connection. I’m sure many here have dived down this rabbit hole too but I like hearing differing perspectives for nuggets of information for me and my family. Personally I’m most interested in 2 & 4 but will likely watch others as time allows too. Here is their schedule they shared: (1) The Broken Brain Epidemic / My Story (January 16 & 17) (2) Gut Brain Connection: Getting to The Root of a Broken Brain (January 18) (3) Losing Your Mind (Alzheimer’s, Dementia and MS) (Jan

  7. Thank you for your feedback. I appreciate it. Seems to be the trend of some enjoying them. Others not due to unreliability. Thanks again! ~ HSsquared

  10. We have daily struggles to keep my son on track to complete essential core subjects. INFO: He is on the AS, SPD. I believe he has a good environment to learn in-our living room with neutral color pallet etc. Currently, he has “homework†(that’s school work he didn’t do during a lesson if it’s not done timely, even w extra allowance for handwriting) no media (iPad, TV, etc, until it’s done either, etc). He basically pulls a toy in to play with or will just sit and stare off. This is his norm. I accept and honor he needs breaks and he gets them, but it’s simply physically tak

  13. MUS didn’t work well for us. Some concepts introduced way too early. I suggest checking into RightStartMath as it is much more hands on, less worksheets and works to build comprehension over simply completion of tasks like MUS. Hope that helps! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I’m sick of being tired and feeling twice my age. I need to be more fit - I think that would help. Anyone have reviews on the FitBit and what model you enjoy? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. You may find benefit in skilltrekker.com. It has been a nice addition to it school year. Per their slogan, it “teaches everything academics doesn’t cover.†Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
