I have been working on schooling with Nathan, and so far he is understanding a lot more than he used to! We have an old computer that we use to play his games on which is password protected. He has to learn the password on it in order to play the games that he wants to. We have selected two letters for him to enter which has been a great exercise in teaching him some of the alphabet. He has come to rely on things being in order or consistent. For example when we recite the ABC’s he can do so if they are kept in order, if you ask him what is the letter before D is he cannot tell you, therefore, this gives him a different platform to recognize his alphabet. He was so proud of himself when he got the password right without anyone helping him!! 🙂
In one of my previous posts I referenced to a website that I just found in helping to teach learning disabled children their letters, numbers and words. Flash cards have been something that has liked the whole time, for some reason he seems to learn better than with worksheets or workbooks. I printed out a set of cards and taped them to recipe cards to teach him his colors in words. It is still a slow process but much better in comprehension than before.
I’m still giving him the same vitamins and supplements as before, although, we may forget a day here and there but it doesn’t seem to set him back in progress like it used to do! 🙂
I’m hoping to take advantage of his new cognitive skills and see what he can absorb academic wise.
