Homeschool curriculum

Hi there,

We will be starting our 2nd full year of homeschool this year.  One of the reasons I pulled my daughter out of school in the 3rd grade was because I had suspicion that she might be dyslexic.  She was falling behind so much and once I got her tested I learned that in 3rd grade dyslexic students usually hit a wall.  I was so frustrated with the lack of support and help from the school that I decided the best thing for her was to pull her out and teach her at her own pace.  I have been using abeka since then.  She will now be starting the 5th grade and I am contemplating spending the money on Verticy Learning which is an Orton- Gillingham based curriculum for dyslexics.  Dont get me wrong I love abeka but feel it lacks what my daughter needs in some areas since she is dyslexic.  Can anyone out there who have used both tell me if Verticy learning (calvert) is worth the extra money?

I have never used Verticy Learning, so am bumping this for others to comment on.

Meanwhile, I did find this review on line.

Verticy is Calvert's program for dyslexics; it is connected to their SN brick and mortar school Jemicy, like Calvert is connected to their Calvert brick and mortar school.

It's a great program; just be aware that OG doesn't work for every dyslexic. A good alternative would be Dancing Bears reading and Apples and Pears spelling, with IEW writing, if you didn't want to spend the money on Verticy.

Yes, it is a part of Calvert but its designed specifically for children with learning differences such as dyslexia.
