We are busy typing up an essay on our son's Dyslexia/ISSS/dygraphia/auditory processing disorder/visual disorder educational journey for a scholarship specifically for Dyslexics. It is good to see how far we have come, but also is exhausting to see all we had to go through to get where we are today. It has been quite the emotional journey for nearly 18 years since there were dyslexia issues long before he started formal schooling here at home.



Blessings,
Heidi

If my daughter who has difficulty memorizing needs help, we use sign language. It always helps her hold on to the concepts a little better.

For our daughter who loves music, we'd turn on the tunes and dance and move about and be silly.

For our son who loves the outdoors, we'd go outside and hike, clear brush, play in the woods or creek, shoot air rifles, etc.

Blessings,
Heidi

I like to rejuvenate after stressful lessons with difficult learners (even if they're not "slow". . . maybe they're reluctant or having a bad day or something) with some great one-on-one time doing something both I and the struggling learner love to do together. Walking or running around outside. Doing a puzzle or cooking together. Reading a book to the child. For my older daughters, doing a craft together or listening to music while we're all in the same room doing nothing in particular or everybody working on his own project. But listening to nice music and being together. What are your ideas, Heidi?

Homeschooling a struggling learner can cause higher stress levels for moms: the lack of progress, the search for answers, the cost of therapy, the scheduling of therapies, changing curriculum, even wondering if your child would be better off in "real" school all take a toll on mom.

So if you are homeschooling a struggling learner, what is your strategy for reducing stress that does NOT include binge eating/spending/shopping/drinking/etc ?

Blessings,
Heidi
