SeekingSimplicity Posted September 21, 2012 Share Posted September 21, 2012 (edited) Posted about this on the general board, but wanted to put it here also. I enrolled the kids in school this year. Middle child with ld didn't want to go at all. She liked making friends but didn't like school. She was failing everything, reading teacher was very concerned. They were about to test her for dyslexia when we had to withdraw her yesterday. (Moved from MS to TX, then back to MS) She had been tested in 1st grade at the college by students with a professor supervising. We didn't have a good experience at all, nothing for sure was figured out. They think she didn't have dyslexia, but possible something going on. She was considered a slow learner, had some visual perception stuff going on, ld. I've always felt it was a bad diagnosis. Reading teacher this year was very concerned about her having dyslexia and wanted to get her in special classes, so wanted her tested. Getting her tested here would be very difficult, only real option would be to go back to the college. I was using apples and pears and dancing bears. I think I'll keep that up with her, and other than that, just let her learn how ever she needs to as I always have. I really don't like the idea of public school for her, they were all about getting the test results. That just seems really bad for a child with learning differences, and well, I just don't like it in general.
