  1. My 1999 ed. of WTM recommends Introductory Logic and Intermediate Logic for 6th and 7th grades. Can anyone tell me if that is the recommendation in the current edition before I purchase them?

    Thanks so much!

    • The recommendations for formal logic in 6-8th grade, from the 2016 edition, are: Martin Cothran, Traditional Logic (Memoria Press), or Joelle Hodge/Aaron Larsen/Shelly Johnson, The Discovery of Deduction (Classical Academic Press). Please note that “Traditional Logic” sometimes draws from Christian writings, whereas “The Discovery of Deduction” mostly does not.

  2. I am homeschooling my son this year and he is in first grade. I have noticed that he is having some issues and want to get him tested for dyslexia and in some other areas. Unfortunately, our health insurance has currently lapsed, so I can’t reach out to his pediatrician at this time.

    Can anyone suggest any resources to get him tested virtually or point me in the right direction in other ways?
    I want to make sure I get him the help he needs and am glad that I was able to see what is going on with him.

    Thanks in advance!
