Salamander is going to graduate from Lindamood-Bell!!!!! The staff has done an incredible job in teaching him and helping him remediate his gaps in reading and math. He is much more confident, much more solid, much more automatic and fluent.. in a variety of areas. There is not much left to actually teach him.. it's now a matter of practice, practice, practice and more practice.. (I can't wait to see the 'retest' results... and, oh evil me, I can't wait to share those retest results with school....)

I'll write more about it later.. We'll continue to go to the center for a while longer (probably end of school year), but we are going to start tapering down from the intense schedule. We have another 8 hour instruction week next week, and then we'll probably drop down to 4 hours until February school break. And after that we'll go to 2 hours, but mainly focus on study skills...

It's been a very crazy, hectic, oh I lost track of how many (three?) months, driving back and forth 5 days a week, time (but oh the conversations we have had during those long car rides..). I have no regrets.. this continues to be in the Top 4 of 'big wows' for Salamander (diet, AI/OT, Dr. Amy Yasko, and now Lindamood-Bell)....

Expensive? Yes. Price-less? YES!!!!!!!

Gosh it is so good to read about success! There is nothing better than progress!
I hope you can get the school to reimburse you for the cost.
You have done the right thing by getting the help now.
Keep up the good work, your boys will understand someday how hard you worked for them.
