I am a parent of a nine-year-old boy with Asperger's syndrome. He likes to do computer games to learn math, but he cannot handle the time constraints of most games. Are there any downloadable games or software that are fun, but not timed?

Can an ADD child get addicted to video games?

Administrator

October 29, 2008 3:54:26 AM

I have an 11 year old son with ADD. A doctor has stated that there is research showing that kids can become addicted to violent video games and that gaming raises cortisol levels in people who play video games. A counselor says that ALL electronics can cause the above two situations.

What is your take on this? What about active video games such as Dance Revolution or the wii games? How should a parent address this? Take them off all games permanently or just take a break? Help!

We live in Beirut, Lebanon where my 19 year old son, who is diagnosed with dyslexia and ADHD, will be attending the American University for Science & Technology (AUST). AUST recently approved a program for students with disabilities and the university administration is working with the parents to develop an effective program. Can you provide us with any recommendations for things we should consider, such as assistive technology, teaching methods, training of teachers, etc., to guide us in this effort?

I was wondering if there were any good computer games to help my nine-year-old daughter in math. She has been diagnosed with dyslexia and although she is almost at grade level in reading, she is unable to remember and understand math concepts. If you know of any games we could get for the summer, please let me know.

Does technology affect learning in young children?

Administrator

I see preschool children playing with video games in doctors' offices, at the supermarket and other places. Recently I heard that young children should not be using these games or computers, even when the programs are age-appropriate. Do you think this technology affects learning in any way?

How can a first year special education teacher learn more about how to document special education services?

Administrator

October 01, 2008 11:06:00 AM

This is my first year as a special education teacher. I am finding the paper work overwhelming and frustrating. I am so busy with the paperwork I have little time to work with my students. In fact, my classroom aide does most of the one-on-one! There is so much more to special education than even I knew as a five year classroom aide.

How do I understand the results of diagnostic testing? And after I understand the test, what does that tell me about what to actually do with the child? I did not have any training in how to give or even understand the results of any testing. At the moment, I am trying to understand the WISC III and Woodcock Johnson Test of Achievement results for a student who appears borderline. How can I understand it so if I can show that he needs special education services with my documentation? Is there a book or something you could suggest that will help me in the future?

How can a parent choose a good speech to text tool that will help their dysgraphic child ?

Administrator

May 01, 2008 2:37:55 PM

My 11-year-old son was recently diagnosed with dysgraphia. We were given recommended accommodations to request for his school work, but it was also recommended that we buy a "speech-to-text" program to assist him with his school work. I'm drowning in a sea of software options and don't know what would be best for him. Any suggestions?
