Multi-Sensory Gifts from God

Abby and I are currently engaging in the “Barton Reading & Spelling System: An Orton-Gillingham Influenced Multisensory Structured, Explicit, and Systematic Phonics System.”

If you’re cross-eyed right now, join the club. Nearly a year ago, Abby (our middle child) was diagnosed with mild dyslexia, and it seems we’ve been scrambling since then. We are learning all we can to get the training and help we need, which may lead to my brain exploding.

So, in the spirit of Multi-sensory Education (and sanity), here are a few things that have brightened the last few weeks:

What a beautiful sight to see head, thorax, abdomen, compound eyes and simple eyes on our sidewalk after studying insects with Abby

Delicious tastes from picking fresh vegetables with a neighbor in a nearby garden... Our kids even got to try and hate eggplant.

Hands touching pen and paper in our new "family journal." Add a little or a lot every day - whatever you want to say.
