We watched the first disk of the student intensive and it about put us to sleep! My son is 1st grade but is advanced. His writing is his weakest point but he can write 2 paragraphs and easily grasps concepts like puncuation and grammer. Thankfully IEW was something we checked out at the school library so no money lost on that one. I don't see what people see in it! I do plan to try watching the TWSS before I take it back though. I hope there's some better info in there and it doesn't put me to sleep! Has anyody ever tried this? http://www.createpress.com/pages/product.htm My son is great at writing facts but everything he writes goes back to facts. Not surprising since he has "autism like characteristics" and doesn't really deviate from facts. He's just now starting to understand what a joke is and use his imagination when playing. Until he was 5 he would only use science kits and such never pretend play. It's a work in progress. But once again it's expensive. Has anybody used this?
