Accredited Math for Middle School - Fusion or Tilden Prep
My child who is in the 8th grade is attending a private school geared to teach kids with LDs. My child has dyscalculia. The schools math teacher of many years left this summer and the school has not been able to hire a qualified teacher. The teacher in place now does not have a teaching credential (working toward one) and they have no experience teaching kids with LDs. My child sees an educational therapist once a week who we think is quite good. The ed therapists feedback is that the current instruction is not appropriate for neurotypical learners let alone kids w LDs.
We do not want to pull my child from the school entirely but want to explore alternative options for math learning. The way things are currently structured at the school, my child will pass math, probably even with good grade, but they won't learn anything and they will be woefully unprepared for high school. The ed therapist does not have time in their schedule to work with my child daily and wouldn't be able to assign my child academic credit for the work they do, even if they had the time.
Does anyone have experience with either Tilden Preparatory or Fusion or some other arrangement for a situation like this? I'd so appreciate any insights or advice.
