My DH has a nephew with some pretty significant behavior problems. He was kicked out of summer day care his 2nd day, so I've agreed to take him for the summer. I'm one of the few that can handle him. Today I discovered that he can't read. AT ALL. He doesn't know any words, none. Not even "hat" or "line". So, I called my DH to tell his brother that DN should be in summer school and not at home with me. They know he can't read. Aren't upset by the fact that he got promoted to the 3rd grade, or that that the school claims he reads on a 1st grade level. It's no level. The school not only promoted him, but did so without requiring him to go to summer school. I'm fuming, but the only one. I don't know how they expect him to learn to read AND learn to do the things 3rd graders do. As a librarian, reading is my "thing".

I taught reading as a 4th grade Spec Ed. Resource teacher, but that was many many moons ago, and I had great classroom resources. I thought about you guys and hoped perhaps you could suggest a not so expensive program I could use to at least get him on some reading level this summer.

Reading Reflex came to my mind. Cheap and supposed to work for older kids without seeming too babyish.

You did. There're two threads that are the same. I've noticed there's been a lot of double postings lately for some reason.
