FO4UR Posted June 23, 2009 Share Posted June 23, 2009 I'm 90% positive ds6 is dyslexic. It would explain so many things! Anyone have any experience to share? advice? know of a fabulous curriculum that utilizes the Symbol Mastery techniques???? I have SWR...and have shelved it for the time and am using Word Mastery from www.donpotter.net I feel like the phonics knowledge is coming along fine. It's reading it on a page with other words that is ds6's biggest hurdle. That, and writing...in cursive he does well....trying to print, he's all over the place - his form is nice, it's just backwards or upside down or letters reversed! He has a strong auditory sense - phonemic awareness is great! We've played "glue and un-glue" the word orally since he was about 4yo. He *sees* the cuisenairre rods in his head for math - oral drill is a breeze (games like "Go to the Dump are fun!), but give him plain 6+7= on the page and he tries to manipulate somebody into giving him an oral clue......(I'm seeing this now, after reading the book:001_huh:) More book recs? help? come hold my hand!?!:confused: Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
