She is in 8th grade now and is in algebra . She still has problems adding . The funny thing was is she could always multiply but not add . I don't get it lol neither does the school psychologist. She was diagnosed with a memory issue . Hope u find something that works for him
yes, he does have an IEP. He has allowances for extra time on tests, someone scribing for him if needed and some reading allowances like someone reading his tests to him.
What modifications should I have added that pertain to this issue with math? I've actually contacted his teacher from last year (who we absolutely loved) to see what his opinion was of holding him back a year. Let him repeat 1st grade.
