Do you have a reading/dyslexia coordinator? Our school has a 504 coordinator who also works in this role. You can also ask SPED department. I use different fonts; some students need colored paper; it’s really depends. I do only uppercase letters on tests when there are multiple choice options. I’ve done that for years (20+ now) because I noticed my issue with b & d. Then, dyslexia became more recognized. Not all need repetition; some of us get bored because we aren’t lower intelligence but as a young child, repetition was extremely important for my spelling skills.

I'm looking for some kind of Japanese language classroom environment in the Santa Monica / West LA area. I've been self-learning via Duolingo and other apps for the past year, and I've hit a wall. No problems with reading hiragana/katakana, doing all right with kanji. I currently need classmates and an instructor to motivate me to memorize speaking phrases and practice active conversation. I know there are apps for this type of language exchange, but they're usually 1:1 matches and virtual.

I have to respond to these emails in a timely manner & all students were working diligently on the first assignment.

Right now, I am dealing with behavior kids for 1-4 hours daily (I’m the reading specialist). Almost non-existent support from the district. Just curious what it looked like in other places.

Nothing is working. Mom and dad both say that this is the only place he does this at. He will go just fine outside of school. Suggestions?

I think you should teach your kid to actively manage their time by giving them access to the Xbox all week, then as punishment for not getting their school work or chores done (not properly managing their time), then you take the xbox away for a little bit as punishment. Your child will learn to use the Xbox as a reward for getting all their other work done. Taking away the Xbox during a set time as a rule doesn't teach your kid anything.

Has anyone here gotten pregnant with someone they were dating vs married to? Can you share your experience? Is that still frowned upon in 2022? I know culture also comes into play for some. Even though it seems we are more progressive now - none of my friends had kids before marriage. Especially those with professional careers etc. It seems like the whole first comes love then comes marriage and baby thing is still standard. Does it really have to be though? Especially if you're in your 30s.
