Subject: Dyslexia remediation curriculum - help!!!

My son has been doing BLS (basic language skills) an orton-gillingham approach since second grade and is not progressing through the curriculum very quickly. He's still in the first of three books. Does anyone know what a reasonable time frame for a child to complete this program should look like?

My son is in third grade, dyslexic/dysgraphic and has the associated issues (poor focus, poor working memory and slow processing).

I'm wondering if we need to take a hit on all the work we've already done and switch him to a different program....

Where is your child getting help, though the school or private tutor? How many times per week and what is the duration of the session. Is he receiving one-on-one instruction; or is it being provided in a group setting?

When I Googled the program, here is what I found that is was developed by Dr. Susan Carreker at Nehaus. Here is information on the program: http://www.hsutx.edu/offices/literacy-learning/basic-language-skills

I could not find what the recommended optimum protocols are for implementation of the program.
