lyssaflin Posted September 5, 2012 Share Posted September 5, 2012 Hi everyone, I first posted about a year ago when Ds (8) first got the dysgraphia diagnosis. Last year we switched from AAS and WWE to Apples and Pears in an attempt to remediate the spelling and writing. I also suspected some stealth dyslexia, so we added in Abecedarian. He has been receiving vision therapy for the last 3 months and OT for SPD for the last 4 years. I've become so discouraged lately. His reading has improved, but writing and spelling are stuck. He can read blends and digraphs well, but always leaves one of the letters out when he writes the word. Words that we have worked on for years simply don't stick. He hates to write, and I think he works so hard making the letters and focusing on the penmanship, that the words and sentence structure get lost. He does better if I write and he copies what I've written. His OT told me last week that she feels his penmanship is legible now, so it's time to stop working on that and move on to typing. I agree that we should continue to work on typing, but doesn't he still need to be able to write at least to fill out forms, etc.? Thanks.
