    Latin

    Dear Parents & Educators of Struggling or Special-Needs Students,

    I think you will appreciate this article.

    Our premise regarding the benefits of classical education for our children finds support here, especially near the end:

      Latin Article

      Thank you SOOOO much for this article. My daughter, who has a learning disability, is struggling with Latin and why she should even do it and her therapist (who is doing the NILD Discovery program with her) feels that we should drop Latin and get back to basics. But I was JUST explaining to my husband why Latin is so good for the brain of ANY student, especially one that stuggles with logical sequencing. He was in agreement in her learning Latin (mostly as a bridge to other languages and English) but did not realize Latin was useful beyond that. I will share this article with him and with my daughter's therapist. Do you think it would be good to share it with my daughter or let her discover this on her own?

      P.S. Your article in the last magalog was also beautiful, touching, and timely. I read it to my daughter and it was an encouragement to her. It was even more of an encouragement to me. I can't WAIT to read your book!

        Dear stm4him,

        Thank you for your supportive words!

        If you think the Latin article might enlighten and encourage your daughter, then certainly share it with her. You mentioned that she received encouragement from the recent Classical Teacher article, and you describe good communication between the two of you. Perhaps you could read through the article together if she would otherwise struggle with the content.

        In another post, you mentioned your daughter's difficulties with studying. To assist her study skills, you could print the article and give her a highlighter with the instructions to highlight any sentences she finds especially informative.

        Thanks again-
        Cheryl
