The most amazing part of all of this is that my daughter was diagnosed with dyslexia during her last year of being home schooled. Even though it took her two years to complete the book, it has served her well throughout her schooling experience. We also loved the reading program. There were many very wholesome stories in the reading series with a large emphasis on phonics. That is probably part of the reason my daughter loves and excels at reading to this day.
I am in my mid 50s and am considering using the A Beka math program to refresh my math abilities before going back to college. It seems to be a very straight forward program with good math explanations.
The only drawback with the A Beka homeschooling program for us was that if you used the video tapes to home school, the assignments moved too fast for a child who has a learning disability. If you take the books at the students pace, I can't imagine not having a well-educated student at the end of the program.
