  1. So I’ve gone through and read a bunch of threads about ADHD and slow processing and a bit on dyslexia but now would like some input 🙂 We just finished getting my soon to be 9yo son tested and I think I’m struggling with knowing how to put together a plan from here. His WISC Scores: VC 130 98% Similarities 16 98% Vocab 15 95% VS 108 70% Block Design 12 75%
  2. So my 19 year old dd got tested recently for ADHD. They did the WAIS-IV along with attention related testing (measures of impulsivity and attention). They could not give her a FSIQ and did not give her a GAI (not sure why -- she went the the appointment alone). She did get diagnosed with ADHD, though the tests measuring impulsivity and attention were both in the average range. The psychologist thought her scores were definitely all over the place, but as she is following up through her campus psychologist, she basically just went through the report with her and wished her well. Does anyone
  3. I usually lurk but I'm looking for advice from people with similar educational philosophies as me. My 8 year old daughter is incredibly bright, creative, funny, and impulsive. I've always known she's distractible, but we've been able work with it til now. We're trying to do 3rd grade work and she can mentally do any of it but she can't focus, she can't sit. Math lessons take an hour, unless I work with her every minute. The careless mistakes are adding up. She can narrate stories for hours, but getting a whole paragraph out of her on paper is pulling teeth. In group activities she's the ki
  4. I'm starting to think about classroom setup for the fall. Yay! I'll have a small class of almost all boys, almost all of them with ADHD and dyslexia both. My initial thought is that less is more in this situation. A lot of teachers go for extreme cuteness and classroom themes, but that's just not for me. I kinda just want to go minimalist... plants in colorful pots, some maps on the wall, a globe, and the basic art and writing supplies. As far as I can tell, kids neither notice nor care about how cute their classroom is. With older elementary boys, I especially don't want to offend their
  5. I've been reading a lot of research about kids' attention spans and how exercise helps focus and learning. Some schools are increasing recess time, but some are not. It seems like the pro-recess schools get as good or better results than the non-recess schools. For those of you with kids in school, how much recess/movement do your kids get? Or... how much do you wish they would get? For some reason I'm picturing 30-45 minutes of inside time followed by 15 minutes of recess, rinse, repeat. At my school they get one 30 min recess, with short movement breaks during classes, but there isn't any re
  6. Does anyone have any tricks for helping a kid learn to maintain focus? What do you do when they focus while you're talking to them (1 minute) and then instantly zone out (waaaaay out) the second you turn your back? It's making learning impossible, and this is a very smart kid. Very frustrating for everyone. I'm not sure if this is an autism thing, an adhd thing, or what. Asking questions as often as possible helps, but I can't always be doing that.
  7. As a spin-off of the recent thread on improving processing speed, are there math curriculum or methods that work well with slow processing speed? My son's at 11 yrs is in single digits. On untimed content tests, he is low avg to average. On reading comprehension and logic, he is above average. We just finished 4th grade math with him, and it's just painful to continue for both of us. He is getting OT help with physical writing. I already accommodate - five problems or 30 mins or one good sentence, etc. Thanks.
  8. Our 14 year old DS is very bright, but really needs help with time management. He's actually asked for planning systems to help him structure his time (he has inattentive ADHD). I'm thinking of something like Homeschool Planet this year. But what I really want are features thatwould send him text reminders and/or alarms. To help him know when to stop/start/get ready, etc. (I have no idea if Homeschool Planet or other planners have any feature like this.) Any good recommendations?
  9. Update Post #26~ I know this is a weird topic for a homeschool forum, but someone on here has had to have had this problem. My DS 11 is wearing shoes that are literally 1/2 in to short. How do I know? He is wearing the horrible clogs his grandmother bought him possibly 1.5-2 yrs ago, and his heel sticks over. We have tried 3 times in the last 6 months to go shoe shopping and have come home empty handed or with shoes he wouldn't wear. He has ADHD with SPD issues with clothes, shoes, food, etc. Problem now is his heel is hurting from being over the shoe. Tennis shoes won't let his t
  10. I happened on this book at the library while looking for something else and was caught by the title: Dyslogic Syndrome: Why Millions of Kids are "Hyper," Attention-Disordered, Learning Disabled, Depressed, Aggressive, Defiant, or Violent--and What We Can Do About It by Bernard Rimland. I have not finished it yet. Rather than say more at this point, other than that it is changing how I am thinking about a lot of things I see IRL and read on these boards, I'd like to put it out here and hope that others will read it too and then want to discuss it. And maybe it can help somebody here. Here
  11. *Update in Post #15* We are waiting on reports from recent evals, but this is killing me. Can you name it? My 10 yr old son wants to be in groups with kids, do activities, seeks the attention and time with others. However, he is reserved, quiet, doesn't speak up much, and often misses cues or what's happening. Example, in small group at scouts, the boys were to vote on a yell for their group. I asked if he got to vote or voted, and he wasn't sure if he had or not. If I or another caring adult isn't there to walk him through, he misses what's going on, lags behind. My husband s
  12. I appreciate the help with the social issues yesterday, and so, I thought you might help me again. It is almost a daily struggle with my 10 yr old and instigating, teasing, picking, back-talk, just 'ugh' behavior. Under handed messing with peoples' stuff and pretending he didn't, saying he's not playing a game and then declaring himself the winner, etc. It drives his brothers nuts, which drives his parents nuts. When we talk to him about it, he doesn't seem to understand what he does, or doesn't remember, or claims not to remember, or says that everyone is always fussing at him. Well,
  13. Our DD was in public school for PK and K, and then we homeschooled 1st, 2nd, and this year 3rd. She has always been bright but highly active and has difficulty sitting still. With occasional outbursts. However, this year has been a battle and she's been refusing to do work, writing nonsense when she doesn't feel like doing assignments, etc. We have already discussed ADHD with her ped, and there are probably both sensory and attention issues. However, I'm thinking of enrolling her back in public school while we have her evaluated. She may benefit from the structure, I need a break quite f
  14. Our DD (8) is in 3rd grade. We pulled her out of public school in fall of her 1st grade year. She has other issues where she had to have an IEP (not behavior, a physical disability). Bottom line is, it worked well for two years, although there have always been ups and downs in her behavior. She can be hyperactive, challenging. But you know, it worked for two years. But this year the work is a bit harder, it does take a bit more concentration. And she has been SO challenging. She doesn't want to do her work, and she will actually make up numbers or scribble in her book to try to get
  15. We have a 13 year old and will be getting him a phone for the first time. He has ADHD inattentive, as well as slow processing. He's extremely bright, but needs a huge number of reminders of tasks to accomplish, staying on track, etc. The plan is to start with something inexpensive -- hopefullly not a smart phone, but a less expensive phone (possibly a trackphone). So there would be some limits and also if it is lost there is not a huge out of pocket expense. I KNOW an iPhone or something would have lots of helpful apps. But what could we get that is not as expensive if lost or as
  16. This was in my FB feed today. I'm hoping it's fantastic. http://www.additudemag.com/adhdblogs/29/11608.html#st_refDomain=www.facebook.com&st_refQuery=/ Webinar TODAY.

  17. We have a wonderful 8 year old DD. She is bright -- but always loud, often hyperactive, doesn't like to wait. I've often thought there may be ADHD but she does focus well (when she does, for the time she does). But after focusing a short time, she frequently will become wild. And then if she's had a lot of sensory input she tends to get wild the next day or two too. We try to provide as much activity as possible (although we do of course have to stay in and do work sometimes!). What I"m wondering is, how much impulsivity is in the normal range at this age? And how long should my pa
  18. Two of my youngest were diagnosed with ADHD and it was recommended that I find hands-on learning tools for my kiddos. So I've been on the hunt! Has anyone heard of the Tegu magnetic blocks? They were recommended and I just found a great price but want more info if anyone has used them or not. They are on sale on here - http://deals.woot.com/deals/details/a00a6715-8e73-4d7f-9f55-dc1fd3911ad8/tegu-blocks-the-toy-of-2016-with-40-magnetic-blocks-and-perfect-for-all-ages#3 Otherwise, I'd love other suggestions. Thank you all.
  19. Has anyone else used Quotient testing for their child? Was it helpful? It is a computerized test which supposedly tracks responses and attention. This sounds good. However, when I read about it many insurance companies don't cover as it is still considered experimental and there is some controversy over its use.
  20. My youngest boy has a hard time concentrating and the advice the dr gave me was to find fun hands-on learning tools and educational games to help with his concentration such as building blocks or magformers so I've been on the hunt to find those at a good price or other ideas too. Any suggestions or other recommendations? I found these, has anyone used them? I'm enjoying them more and more. http://www.educents.com/tegu-40-piece-magnetic-wooden-block-set.html
  21. Help. We have a bright kid, who has previously tested into gifted pull-out program in school. He may have inattentive ADHD, or possibly processing speed or executive function issues. But he needs time, considerably more time, to complete his work. Like sometimes 2-3 or even 4X. He just moves slow, even on non school tasks. I already help with organization, and cut back on number of problems assigned. But what now? We've reached a point where this may not be enough. I truly hit a flipping point this morning, it's very hard to also put so much of my own time in and it's stressful to
  22. Typing is one of the goals for my 10 yr old this year. I've had him try Typing Instructor for Kids. He says it's broken because it won't let him in the games and makes him redo the lesson when he gets 72%. With his attitude, he is making no progress. I saw colored stickers for the keyboard; I think that will help him. Is there a not-so-fun typing I could try? Offline is nice as we have limited data. (He is ADD, if that makes a difference.) We've also tried Dance Mat. I'm looking for effective little bursts of effort.
  23. A lot of research is coming out about how standing while learning helps children with behavior issues (and even neurotypical kids) with behavior, attention, and memory. Have any of you gotten a standing desk for your child for those lessons that have to be done at a desk or a computer? If so, which one did you get and would you recommend it? I'm considering getting one for next year since I want him to start working on his keyboarding with an actual computer instead of a tablet.
  24. I've played with this idea for years, though I'm not going to do anything with it when pregnant or breastfeeding. But if anyone here has started taking medication for ADHD as an adult I'd love to hear your experience.
  25. Forgive me if this subject has been talked about a lot before--I'm new to posting on this board. I've done some searching, but I'd love it if anyone wanted to link similar threads for me to read further. My son is about to turn 5 and from my layman's view definitely fits the criteria for ADHD. I have suspected it for a long time, and there is a strong family tendency towards it. Listening to my grandma's stories about my dad as a child sounds like either deja vu or prophecy :) My sister was diagnosed as an adult (since the signs can be harder to spot in girls) and took medication for a
