Another thing that is not taken into account is that she reads well when it is a book that she is interested in but she does not read all the words well. She is very good at visualizing stories and is able to "get the gist" of things that she cannot fully read. She loves to read but that was not the case just one year ago.
Our psychologist told me that one of the best things I could do to improve her visuialization skils is providing her with audio books. Not to read along with, just to listen to. To train her mind to visualize. I really strongly feel that has made a HUGE difference in her reading.
She still can't write legibly or do math or read a clock etc, etc, etc. And although she can read the instructions on her math work and often do one problem correctly she forgets what she is supposed to do by the second problem most of the time so I am thinking she can read but all the thought that goes into writing and actually doing the math (or other writing assignment - not always math) or getting her thoughts on paper she forgets what she was supposed to be answering.
Also, they are just learning cursive and I am surprised to see that her practice sheets are very nice looking. I do think though that once they are past simply copying cursive so all she has to think about is the mechanics of writing not the content.
She also can't keep track when she is counting so even if she has the idea of how to do a math problem with her own little cheats like cooloring in boxes or making tally marks, she still gets everything wrong because she loses track when counting. That part is probalby the ADHD.
She usually does pretty well with multiple choice type assignments.
We will be seeing a new psychytrist soon and hopefully they will be able to help but so far I have not had much luck with finding anyone who will test her for these things.
Am I off base in thinking that she could have struggles with dysgraphia and dysgraphia and still be a reader with good comprehension?????
If you actually read all of that - God bless you.
