I've seen a lot of chatter on this board about
Miranda in rural BC, Canadamom to three great kids and one great grown-upunschooler, violist, runner, doc
My son was tested by an OT at age 7.
My DS who resisted writing turned out to have both significant fine motor delays and vision issues.
I wish we could afford vision therapy, which I think my son needs, and maybe OT, but we are already paying over $100 a month in co-pays for physical therapy for my son's scoliosis and back pain.
Didn't you say in another thread that he has not only an iPhone but also an iPad and a netbook? I'm curious why he would use the iPhone for the test and not one of the other (IMO) more appropriate tools? Is it because the iPhone is more discrete? I would suggest not enabling his desire to hide his disabilities, because he needs to learn through experience that if you are honest and unashamed, people will react with acceptance and support. After all, even though you're struggling to pay for gas to get to his appointments, you've spent a small fortune on tools he can use to compensate for his challenges: why not use them more fully?
His iPhone uses 3G.
Well, it's just that you mentioned that he types at 50 wpm. I would have thought typing on the netbook, saving onto a memory stick and handing that in would be the easiest and most logical solution. That's typically what the kids in the schools around here do. Sorry, it was just a suggestion.
My son took the test yesterday and the iPhone worked very well.
My son who is 10 and has Dyslexia was in OT for a weak fine motor which affected his handwriting for 2 years.
