Hi Hanna,
Thanks for contacting me and for sharing your struggles. Sure sounds like you have a lot going on with your daughter.

May I ask how you got these diagnoses? A first place to start is always with the diagnosing professional. What suggestions do they have for teaching and/or therapies?

Here’s one general resource to start checking out:

https://www.understood.org.

This is a group of homeschoolers who address lots of different issues: http://www.nathhan.com/

You probably know that your public school may offer some assistance. Under the IDEA law, they have to provide diagnostic services and offer you assistance. Whether or not that’s a good fit for you is always the question.

Some fun ideas? There are plenty!

• Go to Home Depot and buy a big piece of shower board. Get some dry erase markers and let her use this huge surface to draw and work on letter formation. Using big arm movements will help her.
• Make a sand box to trace letters. Get a box top from a shoe box. Paint the inside a bright color, like red. When dried, pour in a layer of salt or sand and let her trace her letters and shapes there.
• Play doh rules! You can make letters and shapes for hands on learning.
• Have you seen those large exercise balls? Try having her sit on one of those at the table to let her bounce lightly while she tries to concentrate.
• A cheap small trampoline from Wal Mart is about $25. She can count, do skip counting and memory work while bouncing.

These ideas and many more can be found in my own book,
Homeschooling the Challenging Child.

I hope this gives you some ideas. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

Blessings,

Christine

My dad died when I was 18. Prior to that, we had a complicated and confusing relationship.


Every year since then, these honoring holidays are troublesome for me. Once I had kids, they became about celebrating my husband for Father’s Day, or me for Mother’s Day. Some of the sting was removed.


But once in a while, that longing for a father in my own life would surface.
