Help with Curriculum. Daughter has learning disability

Postby Bridget060504 » Thu Aug 09, 2012 7:38 am

Hello! I am pulling my 16 year old daughter out of public school for her last 2 years. She has IEP in school. I have had her tested for possible autism/Asperger's but they tell me she doesn't have it. She definitely has some brain function issues. She is anywhere from 4-6 years behind in almost all areas. I have tried to start doing some online placement testing but that is proving to be more of a challenge than what I thought. What I want to do is concentrate on basic grammar, vocabulary, spelling and writing. I will mix in some comprehension. She is very black and white minded and not abstract. I also need to go back to basics for some math. I don't anticipate her going to college but I want to teach her some things that will be more like what she needs to function in society and real life skills. Any advice on curriculum? I am considering Easy Grammar and Math U Can See. For math especially I am looking for more of a real life application. If I use Easy Grammar what should I use for the rest of language arts? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

We love Easy Grammar. It is simple and easy to understand. You might want to check into Life of Fred math.
