VISITOR: All of the above apply to my ten year old granddaughter. After years of school failure I am home schooling her. She was diagnosed to be dyslexic at age 6. We use the Calvert program with Verticy for Orton Gillingham phonics/spelling materials. The math, however is completely unattainable. After three months of home schooling I am convinced there has to be more to her inability to grasp and retain simple math concepts. She can't process simple addition or subtraction, never mind mastering multiplication tables. We live in FL. Can you help us? I am running out of patience which is destructive. HELP!
