bluedarling Posted October 28, 2012 Share Posted October 28, 2012 My dd11 (12 in January) is struggling with WWE4! We are in Week 8, and she has been doing OK up until now, but has become quite frustrated lately. I think there is more than one issue at hand....CAPD may be part of it (she has an audiologist appt Nov 20th), or possibly mild dyslexia. 1) She can't read some of the words fluently...the past two days I recorded words she had trouble reading: abruptly, orbiter, continents, presidential, observations, artificial, irrigate, media. (There were a few other words, but not ones I would expect her to know...like siege or enigmatic or surreal.) She can usually get them eventually if I let her struggle long enough, but its definitely not fluent reading, and she doesn't want to read the material because it is challenging. (She also loses her place often.) 2) She isn't comprehending the information well enough to summarize, especially on non-fiction text. (This is actually the main issue.) 3) She's having trouble with the memorization...she can't even repeat a single word to me correctly sometimes, much less a whole sentence. I chose WWE because I felt like it was good for her auditory issues, and I selected down two grades to allow for her difficulties, but she is finding it quite frustrating, so now I am not sure what to do. Her little sister, 7, is easily doing WWE2....I could move her down to that level....but I don't feel that is age appropriate writing expectations for a bright 6th grader. Suggestions? Should I just try to get through WWE4 until after our audiologist appt? Just finish Rewards Intermediate we started this summer? (and not do any writing for the time being?) Other suggestions? Her reading isn't horrible....but like her vocabulary, just not to where it should be. [And she's having more problems socially with her speech than these academic issues...which is why we have the appointment. I'm just not sure what to do until we testing.] Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
