jibaker103 Posted January 8, 2012 Share Posted January 8, 2012 My 12 yr old nephew struggles tremendously with spelling and reading to the point it effected all of his grades in public school. He is now living with me and my 16 yr old son for the school year for me to homeschool. I suspect learning disabilities play a major factor in all of this and plan to get him evaluated. He has trouble focusing as he daydreams a great deal, is easily distracted by anything that catches his eye, and fidgets a great deal. He must tap, hum, move after 15 min of sitting in his chair. At the beginning of the school year I bought WRTR and he started learning the first 26 sounds but I found myself being lost and short on time when reading the book. My goal is to find something open and go for me as well as hands-on and visual for him. Will AAS fit the bill? Will it seem to babyish to a middle school aged child? I think I read somewhere that this program has seven levels but IEW only provides the first three. Should I go through all seven levels and then switch to Phonetic Zoo?
