As I well know, ODD rarely stands alone. As this school year progresses, I'm more and more certain difficult child has a learning disability. I'd bet everything in my possession that she's dyslexic. Her teacher asked me to be on the lookout for some things, and I see what she's saying. difficult child is a memorizer. She's struggling to learn how to read (she was put into the remedial reading group last week) and I've noticed she's memorizing, and/or relying on the pictures in the story. I don't know why I'm writing all this other than because I have absolutely no experience with this. I know where she's coming from with a lot of her emotional issues, but learning has never been a problem for me and I can't relate. Nor do I know what to expect. Why is it some nights we breeze through her "sight words" (words that cannot be sounded out), and others it's like we've never read them?? Say it is dyslexia; how do people with dyslexia learn how to read? With each and every new obstacle we encounter with her, my heart breaks a little more for my sweet girl. Yes. I'm having a bit of a pity party for myself tonight.
