laundrycrisis Posted September 26, 2012 Share Posted September 26, 2012 (edited) With the OT's agreement, we went ahead with the testing for DS1. His main problem is great difficulty with sequential information, and also even when it is information that is not sequential, retrieval is a problem. Both of these I was expecting. And I suspected low working memory. But whoa, not like this. I mean it is extreme. The psychologist said this is a major obstacle to learning for him, and said that although he generally is not in favor of homeschooling, that he believes his achievement scores were a lot higher than they would have been if he had been in school instead of home with me teaching him, because with a working memory problem like this, school would not have worked well for him at all. So apparently I am doing a good job of adapting to his challenges. But, I would still like to see if his working memory can be improved so everything is not so awfully difficult. This doctor didn't have suggestions for actually improving it. I have read about Cogmed - it sounds very expensive. Is there something else I should be looking into ? Thanks !
