I diagnosed one of my children with dyslexia very recently, which explains so, so much about his reading/writing/spelling progress. In today's mail I received our new reading system, an Orton-Gillingham based method. I cannot wait to get started!
In the meantime, we used as many multi-sensory and tactile materials as we had around the house. His traditional workbooks are out the window, and I am absorbing all the information I can get my hands on. It's a very cool adventure we are embarking on!
