    So happy for you and your DS, League! I find that, for many learners, it is very helpful when frustrated by a task to be able to say to oneself, "oh, that's just the [dyslexia, dysnomia, dysgraphia]; I'll use my strategies," so that the disability begins to become just a part of one's profile of strengths and weaknesses, not a mark of global failure.

    Your sonís situation sounds so similar to my daughterís. My daughter is in third grade and she was diagnosed with dysgraphia though I suspect there is some stealth dyslexia and dyspraxia occurring as well. Her IQ was ridiculously high but I think the school is still somewhat reluctant to believe it because her writing is so poor. They keep trying to tell me she struggles in math thought she got a 128 on quantitative reasoning (97th percentile) on the IQ test. Her achievement test scores were all in the average range except the written expression which of course was abysmal.

    Iím looking to accommodate through typing and/or speech recognition software. I was told that they are still required to spell every word if they have a scribe which would be too burdensome for my daughter whose spelling is atrocious. I alternate from being completely depressed and overwhelmed to feeling confident that we got this. It ainít easy! I can relate!
