Xavier has severe dysgraphia. This means that keeping track of written work is a pain. It also means that it is extremely hard for him to work up to his ability, and speed in math. Since I withdrew him from school, we've been doing math a bit differently.
Every day, we sit down together. He with his white board, and I with a piece of paper. He works out the problem on the white board, and I write down everything he writes.
This has made math so much better. I have no intention of continuing this throughout his school career, but for now, it works for us. That's what really matters, after all. We're meeting his needs and it makes both of us happy.
