As Daegan struggles to read and struggles to do math, he does not struggle to do Legos. I do not understand this, but I am told that because the instructions are pictures and it is building, it is more kinesthetic and is totally different from reading and math, so it makes perfect sense. I don't fully get it, but I do know that it makes him feel good that he can still do something.
A friend sent him some sets in the mail and it was a serious spirit-lifter!!! Look at that smile!
