Because I am sometimes asked who hosts my website, if that is what you’d like to know, I have chosen Hostgator as my website host after going through a couple of other providers and having issues. Hostgator, has provided me with responsive service and is a good value. I highly recommend Hostgator for anyone wishing to have their own website.  As a disclosure, this is an affiliate link, but I only signed up for the affiliate program after many years of happy service from Hostgator.

  1. Sandy,
    Loved reading your and your son’s success story! Way to press on and overcome. Certainly he IS indeed college material. 🙂

    We have enjoyed homeschooling our kids through HS and MS, and I think we learned as much, if not more, than they did. I wish I had a better attitude about learning when I was a kid (public school). I loved going through the material with the kids, rediscovering history, the sciences, and more.

    Thanks again for your story. Very inspiring!

  2. Sandy,

    When did you know or what was it that said you needed to pull your children out of public school for their learning needs?

    • You can read our story at: http://learningabledkids.com/articles_about_homeschooling/overcoming_learning_disabilities_through_homeschooling.htm.

      Basically, Our school system had initially refused to provide reading services. We went through due process to force our school to provide services, but after two years WITH services, our son still hadn’t made any meaningful educational progress. After the IEP meeting I talk about in our story, we gave up. It was CLEAR the school culture was one of demeaning and dismissing kids with learning disabilities. We could see it was likely to be a battle throughout our son’s school career, and we had ZERO faith they could ever educate him. After all, they’d had him for five years already, and he still couldn’t read and write. For us, it was reaching that point of total exasperation and feeling like our son would end up illiterate if we didn’t jump in and do the job ourselves. 😉

  3. I was so excited when I saw your practice test books for math. I love that there are three levels of tests and wanted to know if you are planning to continue to publish more grade levels. I am currently taking over an 8th grade math classroom that includes two intervention classes. I am concerned about the students and the expectations they are held to. I am not a fan of several things going on with public schools and want to find a curriculum for the intervention classes that contains both a pre and post test…not to spend time looking at scores, but to see what areas the students need the most help in and where they are missing/becoming lost in the math work. Do you have any advice for curriculum and/or pre-post tests?

    • I’m sorry, Sara, but I don’t personally publish practice test books for math. I refer out to several different publishers of materials. Therefore, you were probably looking at materials that I share, but are published by someone else. If you can specify which page you were looking at, maybe I can direct you to the appropriate provider?

  4. How long is the program for a typical student?

    • Truthfully, there is no “typical” student or program. How long it takes to overcome learning disabilities depends upon the child’s individual learning needs. For example, a child with working memory problems, a slow processing speed, attention deficits, etc., can be more difficult to teach when there are additional specific problems with reading, writing, and/or math. Some kids have problems in all cognitive areas and all academic areas. Some kids only have learning problems in one academic skill area.

      So, unfortunately, the answer is really, “It depends upon the individual child’s needs.” The best way to figure out how long it might take is to get a comprehensive neuropsychological evaluation from a highly qualified neuropsychologist. Then, once you know all of the areas where your child needs help, then you can begin addressing each of those areas.

      Another major factor in how long it takes is the intensity of the remediation effort. If a child is being homeschooled full-time, and the mom is diligent about working with her child one-on-one each day, then the remedial programs can be completed more quickly. IF the mom is disorganized, the child is uncooperative, the instruction is not well-focused, or all of the above, a child may never have all of his needs met. I’m sorry I can’t give a specific timeframe, but there are so many possible disability combinations and teaching conditions!
