Light Bulb Moment

Jamison can't spell. At all. He makes mistakes that have made me wonder if his hearing is adequate. His writing is fine...but the spelling is bizarre. I've had his hearing checked. Twice. It's fine. In the meantime, his complete inability has made me feel like beating my head against a wall. It's frustrating for both of us.

One of the cousins has some learning disabilities that include dyslexia. Turns out that she also has something that causes her brain to not hear words correctly. It's not the hearing itself, it's how the brain hears the word. Can you guess where I'm going with this? That is totally Jamison!

So many things as far as Jamison's learning (or struggles) fell into place yesterday.

Mom confession moment: I've had some pretty negative thoughts about his struggles.

I'm totally amazed. This changes a lot of things.


  1. Sorry but glad, does that make sense?? Hope so! Glad you may have found some answers but sorry for his struggles.

  2. It DOES make sense once you find out WHAT is causing the lack of "catching on", or learning, or behavior. Since Benjamin's diagnoses (yes, plural), has given me a LOT more patience with him, where before, I had NONE!!!

    We were praying for lucas. Can't wait for pix!
