I have not tried anything like that but probably because I had the opposite thinking.

Aaron worked so hard at school that I didn't want life to be "all school all the time" -- he always was going to summer school, so he never really got a break from school & then it took him so long to do his homework and it was such a struggle that I just couldn't see adding MORE schoolwork stuff to his schedule.

I take that back...he did a little bit of specialized tutoring with a special ed teacher at our church.

The testing was not a big shock to me, the results. It was all pretty spot on with the results in his IEP. His verbal language/speech and verbal comprehension level is that of an over 13 year old, he will be 10 next month. I knew he was ahead b/c when he was tested in 2nd grade it was that of a 4th grader. We are going to go ahead with the reading tutoring, I am not doing the math b/c I think 2 subjects would be too much and he already gets good support with math. He is in a classroom w/ his special ed. teacher and a gen. ed teacher for math and it is all on his level. We are only doing 2 days a week one hour a day for the tutoring. Like you said, I don't want to overload him.
