At my daughters first parent teacher conference my daughter wasn't doing so good so I talked to the teacher about my daughter maybe having a learning disability like dyslexia. The teacher said most children that are learning to read and write get confused and write the letters backwards and if she was still having trouble by the end of the year then we'll worry about it. Now that it's almost the end of the school year they only had parent teacher conferences for at risk students and of course my daughter was one of them. I looked around the classroom to check out other students work and I was surprised how much different my daughters work looked compared to the rest of her classmates. They had colored a picture of a penguin and wrote a sentence starting with "My penguin..." Even though some of her classmates handwriting was a little sloppy or they had a few misspelled or scrambled words I understood and could read every one of their sentences. Except for my daughters. I had no idea what she tried to write because it just looked like a bunch of squiggly lines and when I asked her what it said she had no idea either.
If you have been to my blog before I'm sure you can tell I love to read. Reading is important to me and I want my children to love it just as much as I do. My daughter does pretty good when I'm there helping her but since I have two younger children I can't sit there for very long helping her. Homework time is a very frustrating time for our whole family.
Even though my daughter has not been professionally tested for dyslexia I really believe she has this or a similar learning disability since I have very close family members with dyslexia and I know it does run in families. I did try the free printable dyslexia test from the Learning Success website and my daughter loved it. This program is very fun because instead of work they are more like games you play with your child/ren. You can do this games 3-5 days a week depending on your schedule. I love arrow pointing because it helps my daughter with her left and right and that is one thing she needs a lot of help with. The best thing about this program is that my daughter thinks it's fun. Fun is always a good thing because homework time is so frustrating for us. If your children make excuses for not doing there homework, scribble all over it, crumple it up, or just take about 4 hours to do homework that should take less than an hour then I'm sure you will understand how much of a relief it is to find something that will hopefully help her do better in school and she actually wants to do!
I hope when she starts first grade she will be caught up with the rest of her classmates. The Learning Success Program is a little expensive but as long as it helps I think it's worth it!
