    Flash cards are very helpful for us. Repetition! My Kids are visual and listening kinds of learners. They love experimenting which helps with the science part of school.

    – One of ours struggles in math (Dyscalculia) so we have been using Math-U-See for him. I wish we knew about this curriculum at the beginning. But we are working through it now.

    – The second one struggles with language and reading comprehension, keeping letters straight, and that sort of thing. We found that Abeka’s phonics worked SO much better. AND FLASH CARDS of the rules are very important.

    -Our third son could not hear or say the ending to words for the first 6 yrs of his life so we worked really hard on diction with him and repetition on the words that were a great struggle. He now LOVES language (not the English language because it doesn’t have consistency) and enjoys studying Greek, Latin, & Hebrew for fun. All because we emphasized sounds to him. He thinks out of the box and is hyperactive so writing languages is quite fun for him – He aspires to be like Tolkien.

    – Our last child has been able to pick up language and math pretty well. Where his struggle is though is in keeping everything in order from first to last. including in conversations. Sometimes he starts at the end of his thought and works through the beginning and then the middle or any combination of the three. We are not sure how to help him through this yet. It’s a working progress.

    Any suggestions or comments, I would love to hear your thoughts or what has helped you through struggles of these kinds, or what you are working with.

    Hi Daneil,

    My name is Alycia. I have a couple of ideas for you.

    I will have to get back to you tomorrow morning as I am traveling and my phone is low on battery.

    I just wanted you to know I hear you. 😊

    Hi Daneil,

    Please forgive me for the delay in responding. We are currently visiting family in California, and have been busy.

    My daughter is dyslexic and has had problems keeping conversations in order. One thing that has helped her the most is taking a minute to “map” the responses in her head before speaking. Maybe have him practice that with you?

    Also lists have helped her greatly in moving from one task to the next. I find lists helpful myself as I am also dyslexic. Visualizing the order of things and then writing them down has been a life saver for me.

    I hope this helps a bit. Feel free to reach out again.
