    Is there a point at which accommodations make sense? For example, my son can do Copywork great. I am going back to the SC3 writing for him to finish out the year and possibly into the summer. He does not like to write and has near meltdowns daily. He says it takes forever and he just hates it. Well, I am making him write some, but is there a point at which it makes more sense to teach typing (which he is learning) and move to a speech to text application? I am just curious if that would free this child up so he can enjoy it more? On the other hand, I want him to be able to write things down in the future and make lists or write a card to someone. This child just turned 11. Thanks.

    You are wise to teach him to type, but also correct that there are benefits to learning to write.

    Ideally he would learn to do both in the coming years.

    We prefer the approach of accommodation (typing, speech-to-text) alongside remediation (teaching him to write well).
