    1. I will have to look at that one. I know each child is unique, and especially with dyslexia. You have to keep trying until something clicks! Thanks for the tip.

  2. Hello Deila,
    My name is Sarah and I am a homeschooling Mom with 4 kids (8 (with dyslexia), 7, 5 and 2. When I first started homeschooling I was working with a public - homeschooling program through our school district and learned about the Barton program for dyslexia. We did that for a while, but it is SO labor intenstive I had a hard time keeping up. Have you heard about this program at all? My Husband and I attended a free lecture by Susan Barton and I loved it, except for the part where she says that phonics does NOT work for kids with dyslexia and that you MUST use a program like Barton or they will not have success. Thank you for providing other options!

    1. That is kind of strange about not teaching phonics. I found that learning and hearing the sounds was very important, but just takes longer. The dyslexic is my youngest of 5 kids, so I noticed a big difference when starting to teach him to read. I was so surprised that he did not catch on. I used all those products I listed, the earobics was good, the books helped, especially the phonics pathways, and then we moved on the the sequential spelling.

      It just takes a long time, we did the phonics pathways book every day, slow go, but when he finally got it, he got it. He has no problems reading now, and reads aloud with comfort, better than many kids. He is 16 now, but by third grade he was the best reader. I found that it took him forever to learn to swim too. Every summer, the same girl, and then finally he got it, and he is my best swimmer.

      We even tried balance boards, and I started him in piano lessons. that was good. we used a Suzuki method and learning to read notes as well. the teacher was kind and gentle -- no tears.

      But I believe in phonics, it worked for us and now he sounds out words with no problems. Let me know if you like phonics pathways. Earobics was fun for him. too. But it was a daily task! There is hope though, he does not have any trouble reading, in fact you would never know he had dyslexia.

  3. That is so great to hear! With my oldest I noticed right away, so many of the classic signs and tried the exhausting route of working with the public school system and then finally decided to homeschool. We have actually gone back and forth a few times from public to home due to some medical issues I have, but now I have everyone home and am SO grateful that I have the option to be home with my kids and the peace that we have felt! I honestly think one of the greatest lessons I have learned through our entire process of turning to homeschool (and I have read about every book there is on the subject and dyslexia as well) is that our Heavenly Father knows the needs of each of us and he knows how to help us help our children! I know firsthand now that He will guide me if I will listen! My son gets frustrated so easily and it has been so nice to be able to let him go at his own pace and stop when breaks are needed! Thanks so much for your response!

  4. PS: My kids are LOVING the game section on Explode the Code. I'm a little confused about the pricing for the program though, they charge by seats so would I need to purchase one for each of my kids or can they all share?

  5. yea, it appears that the price is for one "seat", meaning one child. If you go to this site, you can get a discount, $35.00 for each student. Here: https://www.homeschoolbuyersco-op.org/index.php?option=com_hsbc_epp_order&Itemid=896&c=1

    It is free to join the co-op, and I get many things there.

    We didn't have the online option 10 years ago, but it looks fun. It is a great program, we did the workbooks.
