What is stumping you these days?

    What’s stumping me? The same thing that has been stumping me for several years now–how can I help my nearly 11 yo son learn? He reads okay, mostly on grade level after a year of vision therapy last year, but still writes like a kindergartner, with absolutely no interest in improving. Forget spelling, forget writing sentences independently. Copywork is all he can manage and that is daily hell. Evaluations by OTs/PTs are inconclusive-yes, he’s below average in writing and language arts skills, but clearly bright, they have nothing else to offer besides suggestions of “more practice” which he loathes. He has burned me out on homeschooling and left me little time for my older child and made me feel like a failure. I can’t seem to figure out how to help him and I’m tired of trying new things that don’t work. I’m not asking for you to give me a solution; I guess I just needed to vent a little.

    Thank you so much for your “Behind” post of a couple of days ago. It was so helpful to me.
