My son probably has dyslexia…we will have him tested soon but I’m already looking into curriculum.
I’ve been using Progressive Phonics for reading and All About Spelling for spelling. He’s done better on Progressive Phonics than just Bob Books (which was what I was using originally, just because we couldn’t afford All About Reading at the time we started, and then I found the free program and it seemed to work for our needs at the time). But now I know I want something more intensive and more geared specifically towards dyslexia if that’s what he has.
I’m looking into All About Reading or Barton.
He’s done well with All About Spelling (he’s more consistent in his spelling than in his reading…not really further along, because we take a long time on each concept, but he does well with AAS).
Reading, even things he knows he’ll just get derailed…
I like the idea of AAR because it will reinforce AAS and I think that reinforcement would be good, and he’s familiar with the type of methods they use in spelling so if they use similar ones for reading, that will make it easier.
But I’ve heard a lot of people say Barton is better.
And I looked into it and it seems like they use similar manipulatives (letter tiles) .
Suggestions on which to use?
Could I use some of my AAS manipulatives for Barton?
