My son is almost 9 and has ADHD and Auditory Processing Defficency (sp). He has been in a program at our private school that helps children who learn differently succeed. He is in smaller classes and has less homework then the classes. He is also learning another language, but they consitrate on the native language. He is doing very well and finishing his homework in school at carpool time. We have him on Focolin for his focusing issues as well. He participate's in sports and is reading fun chapter books.

Hi everyone :)

I am Mom to a 13 year old with dyspraxia (Developmental Coordination Disorder), an LD in Math, and who is gifted. Whoa! What a mouthful. I blog about our experiences over at Notes From the Cookie Jar. Feel free to ask me any questions!

Hi all! Just joined your group and TwitterMoms all in one evening. I have a 11 year old son with mild PDD(NOS). I have another son who is 10 and is borderline ADD. They both struggle somewhat in our challenging school system. I'll be checking your site often to get pointers and any tips you pass on

I'm planning a Back To School Event for August/September on my blog Comfort Joy Designs. I'm looking for great products to promote. And subjects to discuss. If you have any suggestions or would like to participate, please email me. I look forward to hearing from you.

Thanks Suzy. I'll check out Rick Lavoie's website.

I'm not sure but I imagine she can. There is a wonderful educator named Rick Lavoie who has a website (under his name). He has worked with kides with various processing disorders for many years, has written books and produced some wonderful videos. I'm sure if you contacted him you may find out some helpful information.
