My daughter is 11. She is horrible with handwriting, she is very literal, and has problems with abstract thought. If I say something that is contradictory to what she knows, or the directions she is given in the book, she says she is confused and doesn't understand. Writing and math are really bad. She understands grammar, but not how to use it. She understands addition, subtraction, multiplication, rounding, decimals, and fractions, but combining them and adding variables, really confuses her. I know she has mild dyslexia, I have it worse than she does. I'm trying to figure out if she might have something more and possible ways to help. This came to light while my husband and her were arguing and he said why do you take things so literal and cannot multitask. It got me wondering and now I'm asking and looking for information.
