  1. Hi there, I stumbled upon these forums the other day and I hope this is the appropriate place to be asking. I'm currently just looking for some advice, insight, curious of others who have been in a similar situation. 🙂 My youngest daughter is 9 and in the 4th grade. Our school district has been back in school full time since early November, before that she went every other day. She has dyslexia and she is hi-cap in math. Due to covid, they are in "cohorts" where they stick with the same teachers and kids and can't really stray from the people they are with. Socially, she is with all of he
  2. Hello, I'm curious if any of you have used, "Take Flight," as your dyslexia program. It seems to be somewhat similar to Barton's. Thanks!
  3. My 12yo DS who has dyslexia and an extremely high IQ, scored 12.8 grade level equivalency on the CAT Reading Vocabulary this year. I have never done a vocabulary curriculum with him. His father and I both have higher education degrees and use a broad vocabulary. Should I start doing a classical roots vocabulary program with him, or just let him keep learning vocabulary as he reads and discusses with us? (He also listens to a ton of books on audio, including many classical works, that are at a high school reading level.) Thanks for any insights.
  4. 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%
  5. (It's actually becoming glaringly obvious to me so maybe "stealth" is a misnomer. 🙂) I'm pretty much convinced my DD is dyslexic. I have had suspicions since she started reading, but she's progressed just enough to fool me every year. She started at public school about a month ago and it seems very obvious to me now that she has some sort of language processing disorder, seemingly dyslexia. Here is what I'm seeing: 1. Dislikes reading despite reading above grade level. She says it makes her tired and makes her head hurt. 2. Her spelling is abysmal. "evryon" (every
  6. Hi, We are getting ready for a nueropysc appointment and would love to have recommendations for testing for suspected dyslexia. I have tried to search and did see the norms are different for a 16 year old, I really appreciate that people posted that, I had no idea. It makes me wonder what else I don't know. I have to admit acronyms are diificult for me and when I look at previous posts, it is quite confusing. I am guessing an IQ test , is that WISC? And some sort of receptive/expressive verbal/ visual/ reading test to see the discrepency between that and IQ? Any specific tests I s
  7. “French scientists say they may have found a potential cause of dyslexia which could be treatable, hidden in tiny cells in the human eye. In a small study they found that most dyslexics had dominant round spots in both eyes - rather than in just one - leading to blurring and confusion. UK experts said the research was "very exciting" and highlighted the link between vision and dyslexia. But they said not all dyslexics were likely to have the same problem.†More info/explanation in the news article http://www.bbc.com/news/health-41666320
  8. My son is 9 and entering third grade at a public school in Ohio. During the second grade year we had him privately tested and learned that he is dyslexic. I began using the Barton system almost immediately and have seen really great results with the program, however doing at least two hours of Barton Tutoring per week plus the normal homework he receives at school was very challenging last year. He was tired and burnt out, and I noticed many times that the instruction he was receiving at school would contradict the instruction he was receiving from me regarding Barton, which then left him co
  9. We have the testing completed. Dyslexia -dysgraphia- ADHD is the diagnosis for my 11 yr old ds. I'm having trouble finding a Tudor. Does anyone have thought on Sylvan learning for a tutoring option. I'm asking questions at Sylvan but can't seem to make sense of it. I'm not hearing key words or phrase like "Barton, O-G system, systematic phonetic approach..." and it has me concerned. The guy just keeps talking about how great his software is. His approach for my kid is to build his vocabulary. He thinks the phonetic window has closed because of his age. I really trust the experience yo
  10. I don't think my 8 yr old DD is dyslexic -- she can usually spell just fine. But, sometimes her thought processes aren't clear, and her sentences, or responses to questions, don't come out clearly, or are missing a few words (like a, or the). Other times she speaks and writes just perfectly fine! In the cases of her mistakes, she'll go back to reread her sentences and immediately find her error and correct it. But I can't help but think that she shouldn't be doing this at the third grade level. We had been using CLE English, and then moved on to BJU and then finally a more CM-ish approach
  11. 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
  12. Let me start this out by saying, please be kind in your comments. I want to hear your opinions, but this is a super sensitive topic for me right now. I am going to to be very vulnerable and share kind of the "whole big picture". We adopted our daughter when she was eight years old through the foster care system. She was born premature ( does that play into learning disabilities?), she was severely neglected the first 5 years of her life, also head trauma at the age of 3 (car accident with no seat belt), tossed around in foster care for 3 years, diagnosed with a speech disorder while in
  13. Hello! We tried a montessori this year and it did not work for my dau with dyslexia/processing issues (long story). I just pulled my 9 year old dau, 7 year old son, and 4 year old son out and quit my full time job..... My daughter struggles to learn unless she experiences what she is learning, so I'm searching for a curriculum that is specific to 'experiential learning'. My first grader is advanced, and my 3rd grader is behind, so I'm thinking about doing a second grade curriculum and modifying it as needed for each individual student. What do you use? Any suggestions? I started to do the onli
  14. Hello! I love this board and am kind of addicted to coming here for help haha. We have been going to an educational therapist doing the Wilson Program for my 9 year old daughter with dyslexia and executive functioning issues. Needless to say, it's been an expensive summer. Due to my work schedule coming up, homeschooling is not an option unless I quit and do homeschool full time. We found a great Montessori school that is about 40 minutes away. They seem to have worked with kids with EF issues and I love that their program is strength-based and focused on experiential learning. All words I
  15. I'm looking for a good way to introduce reading remediation to a 12 year old boy who has had pretty negative experiences with school and is now REALLY emotional about reading. I can do my usual spiel about how having a hard time with reading doesn't mean you're stupid, how people with dyslexia have lots of cool strengths, creative thinking, etc. I was thinking of using the analogy of a foundation of a house - being aware of each sound in a word is like the foundation of the house, and once that's in place we can go on to build the rest of the house...? His phonemic awareness is low, his ab
  16. I have a tenth grade DD. She has pretty severe dyslexic symptoms. She reads at about a 6th grade level and needs significant help writing essay type answers. She also needs a lot of support to finish her assignments. I'm planning on working 1:1 with her this year and not assigning any independent work that will be graded. I'm struggling with how to grade her work. For example: we will be using Susan Wise Bauer's The History of the Medieval World and the accompanying student guide. Last year, I read the text to her and dictates the guide questions. The guide has four section per chapter, three
  17. It's summer! I'm excited, as I'm sure most of you are. But is anyone else kind of pulling their hair out? I ended up homeschooling my daughter so it's not that I'm not used to being around the kids, it is just anytime there is a shift in schedules or routines, my dau (8yrs, dyslexia, executive functioning issues) struggles to rally. I'm trying to be patient as possible because I know I can't get frustrated with her. I've realized today I need to cut back my work schedule, stop some other things that are taking up my mind and making us hurry to places.... What do you do with your execut
  18. If anyone has any experience with either of these, I'd love some input! DS1 (nearly 10) is in the middle of Barton level 5 and DS2 (age 8) is in Barton level 4 (during which we repeat/stick with each lesson until he "gets it"....this level is just so stinkin' difficult!) I have had them do copywork, but have not addressed "writing" (as in, composition) thus far (or at least, not "formally"!) Now, though, I am debating between IEW (institute for excellence in writing http://iew.com/ ) and Here to Help Learning (http://heretohelplearning.com/). I have researched IEW alot and know it
  19. I'm addicted to this forum because it's so nice to find intelligent mothers/educators whom are willing to share their ideas and suggestions. I'm going to keep this super short. I tried to search the forum for suggestions before posting this. If you know of a discussion on this topic already, will you lead me to it? My current decision: My dau is in special education off and on throughout her day at school (math, reading and writing). This transition happened about a month ago. The beginning of the year she wasn't this stressed out, but now that she has so many para pros and schedules to j
  20. Does anyone know of a test that can tell me what level my child is for her written expression? I know she is behind. But I am needed a score to provide social security for her re-evaluation and I have no idea what test to use. She is currently in 3rd grade. Thanks in advance!
  21. *SIGH* My boys are 9 1/2 and 7.8 years old. Both with Severe-Profound Dyslexia. This is our second year of homeschooling and they have made SOOOOO much progress (ds1 is *reading* now, for example!!!!!!). BUT, hubby is still not entirely on board. He still worries ALOT about the "socialization" aspect (man, I hate that word!) of being "at home every day". He has voiced this to me before, but last night had some dream (not about us or our boys) that caused the worries to resurface/become prevalent (I suspect he worries about it more than he has told me). He worries that our boys don't / won't h
  22. My 7yo son was diagnosed with convergence about 2 years ago and wears glasses for it. After a lot of struggles with reading, I'm now discovering that this is causing more problems than we realized. He saw an optomitrist today that specializes in convergence and she has set him up to do a full 1-2 hour evaluation in the next few weeks, and begin a plan to do vision therapy. I was excited and feeling we were on the right track and now after a little research, I'm seeing that there are varying opionions on whether vision therapy is a vaild treatment, or to go with a program that implements Ort
  23. I have a 15 1/2 year old. We don't have "formal diagnosis", but I know most of what we're dealing with. Some dyslexia. She can read, but still skips words (tracking issues I know), flip flops letters and spelling sounds. Her processing is VERY slow whether it's in conversation or a math problem. Higher level thinking skills are a struggle. She doesn't articulate thoughts and feelings real well either. This year, we enrolled in Essentials with a new CC group. In my mind, it would be great for solidifying grammar, the math drills should help her "speed up" on basic operations (she is d
  24. I'm curious if anyone else has been in this situation. I have a 12 yo dd that is going on her 3rd year of homeschooling. She was in special education (non mainstreamed) when she was in PS (pre K-3rd). She has global challenges....everything is hard for her. She is technically in 6th grade but works grades behind in everything...for example she is working through 2nd grade math right now. Even though she was doing 3rd grade reading when she was in school, she struggled and I started her all over again with All about reading when she came home for 4th grade. We also used all about s
  25. We started back to school this week after a month of break and a month of "light school" before that. My 8yo was finishing up AAS3 with 2 lessons to go when we stopped for break. So we just jumped back in where we were yesterday, using the review cards. Gah! She spelled "graceful" "g - a - c - backwards e - s - f - u - l" and "where" "w - a - r - e - r". There were also some more straightforward mistakes, like not doubling the consonant in "giggle," "middle," "wetter," and "dropped". And, of course, there were all sorts of spelling mistakes (on things we had covered in AAS2 or AAS3) in h
