Tiramisu Posted January 20, 2012 Share Posted January 20, 2012 I have a friend with a young teen who is struggling with her dc's learning issues. One problem is memorizing the parts of speech. It's something they've worked on for years. The dc can only memorize their definitions in order, noun, verb, pronoun, adjective. If she changes the order, verb, adjective, pronoun, noun, it's all forgotten. I want to help her, but my question is, is it really important that he memorize this? If it were me, I'd be focusing on the 3R's and work on grammar in a practical way as in writing sentences and paragraphs with proper spelling and punctuation. My friend asked me for help. Do you have any suggestions? I've encouraged her to get a full evaluation so she knows exactly what she's dealing with. I know they had one does many, many years ago, but it may be time for something new. I have been trying to dig up information locally about neurophych's but I haven't been able to talk to parents to get a solid recommendation. If anyone has even dealt with a children's hospital for an evaluation, what entry route do you take? I know a hospital that does this but it's not clear what the entry route is for learning disabilities? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
