My 9-year-old daughter has Down Syndrome. We are on week 32 of Simply Classical Curriculum Level B. We have both LOVED it! Throughout the year, I have realized over and over that this is not a slow pace of a regular curriculum. It is truly a well planned program SPECIFICALLY for special needs. For instance, there is quite a bit of fine motor practice that does not require forming letters. She has made much progress in fine motor skills with no frustration! I have also appreciated the gentle instruction in social skills and have noticed the impact it has made in real life. Her speech therapist has us working on recognizing prepositions and that was easy to add to the Enrichment area of the checklist. Her class at church is learning the catechism so we worked on that in the Enrichment time as well. The numbers part of Level B moved a bit too fast for us, but it was easy to customize to a pace that fit us better. On my own I would not have attempted as many recitations as the book suggested, but she has kept up and even excelled! We have spent about an hour each day and it has been a sweet time together, enjoying the music, poetry and books. She is my fifth child to homeschool. In those 18 years of homeschooling, this curriculum has been the most fun to teach! The pace has been perfect, challenging yet relaxed. I highly recommend it!
