I have a 3rd grader who has struggled with reading since kindergarten. We had him tested after 1st Grade and he has a mild auditory processing problem. We did the $100 and hour reading specialist for a while and I felt like I could do what she was doing for a lot less money. I've tried the Institute of Reading Developement class at my local jr college. That was ok, but again it seams like the key here is just practice. Has anyone tried anything else that is worth the money or do I just keep plugging along. Right now I read with him and have him write short stories. He is reading at a 2nd grade level and continues to improve slowly. I'm just afraid as he gets through 3rd and 4th grade he is going to have trouble keeping up. Has anyone tried Kumon, Score!, Sylvan? Do they work? I would love to hear any advice!
