My husband and I are not great at math and have passed on the curse. Unfortunately my youngest son (now 18) is also dyslexic. The last math subject he actually completed with a small degree of success was pre-algebra. He has issues with retention, number reversals, and, quite honestly, attitude (he just thinks he can't do it and often just doesn't see the point). We've tried numerous programs (Teaching Textbooks, MUS, Saxon, Jacobs, Key-To books, etc.), he's worked with one-on-one tutors, and he's been in two classes. He still struggles with basics. His goal is to be a police officer and therefore my goal is to equip him to be successful, BUT I don't know what to do anymore. I feel like I've failed him because here he is 18 and we still haven't made progress. At this age, it's difficult to find something that'll help that doesn't make him feel like a failure. Anyone have some guidance for a heartbroken mama bear and her baby cub? Thank you!
