Fast Forward to November 2013

Man, how time flies!

We are in November 2013.  CJ finished year 2 of Kindergarten and is now in first grade.  He is doing so well that he doesn't have to be taken out of the classroom except for once per day.  He is performing at the same level as most of the children in his classroom.  That's not to say he doesn't have to work very hard to do this, but he has been advancing nicely.  He still requires special help for some assignments but he is now very quick to advocate for himself if he needs adjustments.
He is at the beginning stages of reading and hopes to be reading full books soon.  He is still so eager to learn and perform.  He always tries his best.

We have just finished up eye therapy.  That was a very fast 12 months.  I can't believe all the progress CJ has made from this time last year.  He can stand on one foot. He can balance on things.   He can focus on things near and far.  He can stop words from moving on a page so he can read them.  He ride a bike!  He can jump and climb like any other 7 year old.  He can move forward from here confidently knowing that he has the ability and strength to advocate for himself when needed.
There is no "fix" for dyslexia.  Vision Therapy helps his eyes work correctly so that dealing with dyslexia is easier.

The Lord works miracles every day.  Big and small.  All as part of His plan.  We must learn patience and to trust in Him until He unveils His truth.
