I have almost had it up to here!
We've tried everything: fact families, counting with objects, computer games, making up my own lessons, etc.
We had even tried the Math Blaster computer game, which came highly recommended; but when he played, he didn't learn a d*** thing. Example: he thought 3 + 1 was 3 and needed to answer that problem right to get to the next level. Then I asked him what was 3 + 0; he said 3. Then asked him, so what's 3 + 1 then; he still said 3!
I am very desperate right now. I've prayed my a$$ off and am getting ready to have him evaluated, provided that it's approved by my insurance.
Does anyone, anyone, ANYONE have some helpful tips to help my son learn math better? He's doing good in everything else BUT this subject.
Thanks for listening!
You can go over something with him over and over again, but he will not retain the info.
