cdwise Posted September 23, 2012 Share Posted September 23, 2012 I homeschooled my now 8 yo for kinder and 1st. We attended a hybrid school where he went to school 2 days a week. I felt he had reading problems, but they were brushed aside by teachers and admin. We have since moved to Latin America and he has been attending bilingual school. Last year I began to think he has Asperger's, and he has been seen by a psychologist but not a neurologist. She thought there was a chance of Apsperger's and "possible" dyslexia. After working with him intensively over the summer, and studying the night before for a spelling test, he scored a 10%. He's now in 3rd grade. He's very intelligent, and great at science and math, but struggles with reading and his writing is atrocious. There are a myriad of behavioral issues as well. Some friends suggested maybe dyslexia, so I've read up on it, and now I think it's the main cause of his problems. We will be in our current situation for one more year. These are my options: 1. take him home to the states (pay for plane tickets etc.) and have him seen by a neurologist. 2. Go home for a Lindamood Bell training session in Seeing Stars and then start working on that. 3. Buy and start working with Barton. 4. Wait until a Christmas trip home to have him evaluated. Start treatment after the eval. and in the meantime just stick with regular school and efforts at reading and writing. Option 4 is the most economical as we already have tickets to go home then. Need some advice. Also, I'm totally exhausted. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
