I believe my son is Central Auditory Processing but that is a whole different story. The things that got him reading the past year was we finally happened upon some books that caught his interests and we had these readily available. Then we turned off computers, games, and legos too. Sorry, my ds loved them too. He had been building them since before he could talk and my ds didn't talk until wayyyyy late. He is good at math (very slow, but good) and he is keeping up in Saxon and other subjects. I make him read aloud almost everything to me. This takes quite a bit of time, but I have always done it. He learns best this way. He knows it to be so. We also entered many of the reading contests available like Pizza Hut Book It Program and the local library program during the Summer time. This year he read all the Illustrated Classics and several other books and I was so proud. I also have a middle son (younger than he is- 10) and my middle son loves to read. He digests every book and could talk about them all day long. This definitely was a big encourager to my oldest. He sees me reading all the time too. Last year when I read aloud books I made a point to go over all the vocabulary I could w/him. When we were running short on time or he was sick I would read his work to him too if time was a factor. My son had his ears checked several times and his eyes. He had no such problems. He has been a challenge to school at times, but honestly, he has a heart of gold and is a real witness to me about determination and not quitting when I felt like quitting sometimes. He has taught me so very much!
