Hi all! Our good friend has home schooled his son and daughter, 10 and 12. The daughter reads very well, but their son is not reading and gets extremely frustrated anytime anyone tries to read with him. He mostly knows his letters and the sounds they make both on their own and in combinations, but some letters trip him up a lot. I have asked him if sometimes letters look funny and he says yes. So, I suspect he might have dyslexia, especially because it runs in the family. His parents are hesitant to send him to school. Even if they did, I think he would be pretty behind his peers and would probably have a really frustrating time. The son really likes technology, but the parents don't want him to get addicted to screens, which I understand. But since he really is drawn to it, I am thinking he might do well with some reading apps for the iPad, at least to start. I did suggest to his parents that they inquire about any special services he might be able to take advantage of at the local school, and I hope they do. But in the meantime, do any of you have any resources or suggestions that might help him? Thanks so much to anyone reading this!
