Abbey Reading & Spelling Using Edmark and Proloquo2Go…so far, so good!! She’s a reader!!

IMG_7283 IMG_7284 IMG_7285

Abbey is working on a reading curriculum at school called Edmark and seems to be doing well, so I thought it would be good if I could do something over Christmas break to keep working on her reading and spelling.

I googled Edmark and found some great stuff to print out at home, to work on her words at home.  She’s actually on words 11-20 right now, but I know that there are a lot of other words she is reading and can spell, this is just a way to keep track, let her show us what she knows and work on words that she doesn’t know…but especially work on her typing words into her communicating app, hopeful that this will lead to more communication! 

Here’s a video of us working on the stuff I printed out, just day one!  I’ll try to do some more videos as we do more.

P.S.  I found the printable on a site called http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/.  Some were free and some were a few dollars.  They have all of the Edmark words to work on in many different ways.  They have lots of great stuff!:)

Day 8: My Autism Diary – Homeschooling my Struggling Learners

Ok, so today’s post isn’t about Abbey.  What was on my mind was homeschooling my boys, one of which is diagnosed with high functioning autism.  And, it’s good to ‘mix it up’ a bit every once in a while, right?

Abbey’s brothers have strengths and weaknesses just like Abbey, just like every child.  My son with autism is so fascinated with history and it makes a subject that’s never been a favorite of mine, fun!  But, boy does he struggle in other areas, making it hard sometimes, but always interesting!

Click on the video below to hear about my day homeschooling so far…
