At the end of 2nd grade, K was diagnosed with a Specific Learning Disability in Reading, otherwise known as Dyslexia. Her reading ability varies between a kindergarten level in some things, to a 2nd grade level in others. She has severe issues with writing, and spelling, as well. We are working to get her the appropriate help for her reading issues, but unfortunately special education schools either specialize in Learning Disabilities, or Autism...never both. She does get a certain amount of help at her current school, and many reading accommodations, and we have seen progress in some areas.
