Best Math Programs for Dyslexia/Dyscalculia

I homeschool my 10 year old. I have tried so many math programs to find the right fit, even Math U See does not stick with him; it seems to go in one ear and out the other and the blocks become spaceships and battle grounds in his head, instead of computational manipulatives. Thankfully, I found Spell Magic for him a month ago, the first program working for him after many years of trying to find the right fit for his reading/writing. I see Math Whiz and Mathlethics are reviewed on this site and wonder if either of those would be comparible to Spellmagic in the math world? Just from looking at the two, Math Whiz looks better, as they work on visualization (the mice disappear and you have to "hold" them in your head). Anyone able to spread some more light on them for me? Thanks!

    Children have lot of good option for the working as it seems for passing time in front of computer or any constructive one. The process of such achievement works for good return in order. The purpose of top writing service is for ideal working.

    Hey - We also home school (my son is 8 and dyslexic). I totally understand your dilemma w the math blocks. If it helps at all, we use the math blocks on their own, supported by videos from Crewton Ramone's House of Math. I am a former upper elementary Montessori teacher, and I used the blocks in my classroom as well. And I used to be very strict on on their not being played with. But having a dyslexic son and encouragement from CRHOM - I was able to see that playing with the blocks - building towers, making abstract art, etc was all part of the didactic experience of internalizing the shapes, sizes, and quantitative values of the blocks, so when it came time for a formal lesson with them - my son was more involved and more engaged. We have been using them for 2 years and the first couple of months was just playing. And we still rarely use any writing yet when we do lessons or practice. I appreciate the thoroughness of Math-U-See - but for us it was too bogged-down in in linear, rigid lessons and workbooks.
