My DS is 7 and entering 3rd. He is in PS at the moment. Considering HS in the next year depending on when we move and to where. He has had Title 1 this year in school, has received OT & other extra help in school since K. Math is grade level. School said "at risk for" dyslexia. Had an outside OT eval with no surprises beyond what school has seen. Presently looking for someone to make the official dyslexia diagnosis and help us either teach him, get tutors and get the school moving in a better direction. Math at grade level. Reading has good days and bad days. On bad days he would have trouble with a Bob book. He is easily frustrated. Saw no real reading improvement in 2nd grade (awful teacher did not help). So thats our history at the moment.
What I am looking for is any direction to information on teaching reading to a dyslexic child. Books or websites etc. Mac computer games or websites or iPad apps or any electronic device that could help. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Secondly how would I go about homeschooling with a learning disabled child? Any words of wisdom? Are there any homeschooling programs designed for learning disabled children? Something I could follow if we did make the change to homeschooling?
