What type of therapies do you have your son in?

The dr that tested my son suggested Floortime as recommended by Stanley Greenspan. I've been reading many good things about RDI (Relational Development Intervention) as recommended by Steven Gutstein. I'm doing a ton of reading now, just wondering what you have found helpful.

We are in speech therapy now as well.

Our child who had the focal point problem and I was not sure at one point would learn to read...

...today was telling the kids in a game the meanings of various obscure bits of vocabulary

...and recently told me: I'm so glad I homeschooled...I couldn't stand being in school...Mom, I can hardly sit still at a chair in a desk for driver's ed...

The point is: he can...but he doesn't want to sit all day long. He is one who loves to be up and around and outside and doing stuff. His visits to Christian school convinced him that it's a lot like prison. And his time around the public school hasn't convinced him any different, even though kids try to get him to go there all the time Smile

So, be encouraged!! You are doing a wonderful thing for your children...even if the tunnel seems long.

I'm so glad this new area has been created at CHFWeb. I thought some of you parents of dear children with ADD would be interested in an e-newsletter I receive. It summarizes the latest research on ADD (last month a rare study of girls was included), and is sent every few weeks. The link is...

attentionresearchupdate@helpforadd.com.

This is not a Christian resource; simply a periodic summary of the most recent research on ADD and its implications.

God bless,

On the writing forum I lurk on, someone said this:

>I know something about how face recognition works.

As adults, we see people (especially faces) as 'wholes' - we learn to see the gaps between the eyes, nose, mouth, and piece everything together as a whole (gestalt). However when we are younger, and if we have disorders like Autism, we don't - we see people in pieces. So we would recognise someone on the basis of a single feature.<

I asked for info homeschooling moms of special needs kids, and they replied here:

http://community.compuserve.com/n/pfx/forum.aspx?nav=printDi scussion&webtag=ws-books&tid=56160

It turns out that she did her dissertation on how autistic kids *see* faces, which might relate to how they see other things, as well, and how they think about those people and things.

Do any of you use time4learning.com? It has been a Godsend! Literally! I originally signed up to help my 2nd grader with reading, after seeing such amazing results with her I desided to add ds whom is 3 grades "behind". The great thing is you can move around three grade levels for different subjects. For instance he is in 6th grade but 3rd grade math. However he is great in the LA department so I keep him at the 6th grade level. The best part for me, is you can print off reports for my records and actually see the progress. He has been moving alon quickly and "catching up". He is grasping the lessons and for me that is a huge *sigh* of relief!

My question is this, if you use this program, do you use it as your core curriculum or to supplement? I have read on thier forum that homeschoolers are using it as their core program. I'm so used to textbooks and workbooks...could it be true? I know I would have to supplement Bible Study (not included) and writing. Anyway, I am just VERY excited and wanted to share and get input.

We are using time4learning.com and we love it. I have 3 kids that we are homeschooling in grades pre-k, 5th and 7th. We almost ended up sending our kids to public school because I just couldn't keep up with all the records, grading so many papers, lesson plans etc. and so I decided the only way I could go on homeschooling this next year was if we found something online to help keep track of things and thats when I came across time4learning. It has a full curriculum for ages pre-k up to 8th grade. You can also use it just for review or summer school. Its a site that they can move at their own pace and they have a lot of independence and can do it all on their own. It is animated with characters according to their grade level. Our middle child has epilepsy and I have thought for the longest time that she would never get caught up or be able to just hang out with kids her age and do the things they do because so many days she is sick from her meds or having a lot of seizures and missing so much work and time4learning has been such a life saver for her. If she is having a bad day then we just stop and go back to it later. She can do one lesson on a bad day or do them all on a good day. It really has given us that major freedom that she needs to fit with her special needs. It really is a great site and would recommend it to anyone that has special needs and needs to go slow or maybe do different levels for different subjects based on your childs abilities. My favorite part is they keep track of your childs progress. I can go to the site at any time and see my childs grades, progress and I can even view future lesson plans. For our family that was a HUGE help! I hope this helps you.

Goodmorning,

Yesterday my ydd came out, "Daddy, take trampoline outside."
No said my dh. This is a mini that goes in our Laundary room. My ydd uses it to jump out all her little energy. We go through one every three months. She is not on any meds just trampoline power. "Daddy, take trampoline outside." No said my dh. He figured she wanted to jump higher. We had just gotton this one this week. A third time "Daddy, trampoline outside." No then he asked her, Why do you want it outside? She answered, simply,
"Why not?" What a kid. She is doing wonderful.
Have a nice day,

Hi,

Sometimes I think homeschooling for this young specials means just slowing down their world long enough for them to catch up.
Our ydd came to us, "Mom, dad, ready go to the fair!" "Yes daughter but it is not until August 26. Oh she said. "Ready to go to the fair on August 26." Very Happy Yes dear on August 26th What do you what to do there? Do you what to see the big cows? No she said. Do you want to ride on the rides? Yes she said What one we said. She said " Big one two huge elevators up down fast air." The hammer her older wiser sister said. The little one grinned that was the one. Very Happy Very Happy Then the parents said no daugters no scarey rides and they both grinned at us. Very Happy Very Happy
Hey I think we are off to a good start teaching conversational english and we haven't even found a curriculum yet. Very Happy

Have a beautiful day,

Good morning,

I have been really busy the last few days. Whew but Sunday I let my dd go to sunday school by herself. Well actually big sis was with her but only because they go to the same sunday school class. Afterwards I asked the teacher how it went and he said she did fine. That he wanted me to feel welcome to come and go. Also to take it Sunday by sunday and how she felt each week. This is wonderful. My little gal is growing up (13). Afterward I was talking to my friend just outside the coffee shop and watching dd from the cornor of my eye. She went up to some little children, and gave a perfect sentence and told them her name. She is so motivated. We will work on want to say after you introduce your self. Very Happy

have a nice day,

Goodmorning,

What is the one goal today you want to teach? Early this week my young dd was struggling to write a sentence. Oh she didn't want to do it. Take a bowl put autism and teen attitude and mix them together. Whew tough stuff but you know what she ended up doing it. She has been talking more this week. Today we will go for two sentences. She is such a good gal. Very Happy
We will also take out a lot of time for fun and maybe a few chores. We have been working a lot on following directions.

Have a nice day,

I posted this in Homeschooling as well.....

My ds, age 8, does not like manipulatives for math at all. We were working on subtraction the other day and he was having a hard time understanding the concept of "take-away" so I used pennies. He balked at the manipulative idea (he always does) but I felt once he "saw" it he would get it. And he did. But as soon as he understood the concept, he did not want to use manipulatives anymore.

However, he either uses his fingers (which is fine for me right now because we're working on either "counting up" for addition or "counting backward" for subtraction.... we're talking simple, single digits here....), or he is clearly somehow working it out in his head.

When he gives me a correct answer that I feel was a harder problem for him, I ask him how he arrived at that answer. Mainly because I want to make sure he understands how he arrived at it and also that it wasn't just a fluke that he said the correct answer. It happens too often to be a fluke, though. He says, "I don't know, I just can figure it out."

So...... what are your thoughts on this? Should I have him show me with manipulatives if that is not the way his brain operates? IOW, is it going to confuse him more (and he does have learning issues) to use manipulatives if his style of learning isn't manipulative-based, or will it offer another concrete way of helping him understand the concept? He's easily frustrated, so I don't want to do manipulatives "just because".

Should I press him for exactly *how* he figured out the answer, or just trust that since he consistently gets the answer correct, somehow in his brain he knows what *he's* doing even if he cannot articulate it?

I am going to start helping in the mentally disabled department at church and would like some "pointers". In the whole dept. there are 60 (adult) people and very few workers.

Pulling this out of a list that Katherine posted in another thread.

This website:

http://www.pavevision.org

is the organization that helped us help our dc when s/he was smaller.

The vision therapist we found through them (we found out later that saying: our optometrist is also a vision therapist, is a bit like saying: our doctor is also a chiropractor) recommended a book called

_The Suddenly Successful Student_

Any other vision resources out there that have helped??

This is an online vision checklist that I found helpful.

I find myself wanting a reading curriculum for dd2 (11yo) and ds1 (13yo). Both of them are behind in their reading levels. It would be nice to find a reading curriculum that has a placement test for them, as well as workbooks/worksheets/questions to go along with what they've read. Is there such a thing? This is an area that I don't know how to help them improve on, so I think that's why I'm wanting something that has it all set out for me. I'm getting better at branching out, but something things I still want to cling to, lol!


I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us. ~Phil 3:13-14~

"Let God Be God" ... I needed changes NOW! Waiting seemed impossible. I prayed all the time, crying and pleading with God for immediate results.
