by buttercup627January 17, 2014 at 11:54 AMMy sd has severe dyslexia. What are some ways to practice reading on he own.
She lacks confidence and usually ends up crying even if she reads the word correctly. It's heart breaking; how do we foster her reading without her becoming so emotional
January 17, 2014 at 12:10 PMAs an adult I struggle with reading out loud because I mix letters up. I can read to myself just fine but when I read out loud I'll stumble over my words. How can I help teach my daughter good reading habits when I can't read out loud myself? Daddy does most of the reading now that she us wanting us to read bigger books to her.

My daughter is in fifth grade. Auditory and visual dyslexic. She will be going into middle school next year.
I am visiting the school soon to see what my options are for placement. But, I am worried she will get lost in the shuffle.
Her handwriting and spelling is atrocious. She is using an iPad at school for Many many things (note taking, writing papers, reading). But, I am not sure what other things I can ask to put in her Iep, or what else would be helpful for middle school.
We have had a great team, and she's had wonderful teachers this far. But, I know next year she will be switichng classes, and have at least seven teachers. How will I manage staying on top of the teachers to make sure they give her everything in her Iep, and help her to succeed?
January 17, 2014 at 12:12 PMI was told they wont test until 2nd or 3rd grade, is this true? I was never tested but struggle with reading out loud.
