momsuz123 Posted July 9, 2012 Share Posted July 9, 2012 Well, in our first year of hsing, I had NO idea that my 7 y/o dd had any issues. Now, she is in in vision therapy (making some progress), OT and SLP (possible mild APD, dyslexia, and who knows). I was banging my head against the wall last school year trying to figure her out. I feel like I have a new plan - but want your input. Math - keep plugging along with Miquon - Math in Focus (Singapore) just seemed too fast for her - she wasn't really getting it, just going through the motions. Writing - I basically stopped this when I realized how bad her vision was, I plan on slowly and gradually getting back into this. I was using HWOT, but am switching to Zaner Bloser (I don't like the cursive in HWOT that my older dd was doing). Reading - this has been slow, but is progressing. We do a lot of read alouds. Spelling - I was doing AAS 1, but took a break. I was going to pick it up again. Grammar - FLL, she seemed to like this, but she listens in on MCT when I read that aloud to my older dd. LiPS - I started this, but was going CRAZY. So was she. I literally boxedit up and put it all away. I want to take it out in a few months and see how we do. Basically, I am going to be much more relaxed now. Her vesitibular system is really still so far behind. Her OT said that she has so many retained reflexes that should have been integrated by now. The OT felt that until her vestibular system gets to the point it needs to be at, everything else needs to just wait. Any thoughts? I feel like her "school day" will be so much shorter now since I am putting more emphasis on her therapies. Thanks for reading this far.
