Is there an assessment for children of different ages and abilities?

Hi Let's Go Learn, I really need some help. We are homeschooling two of our 3 sons. One of our sons is very bright and benefits from a lot of structure and ongoing challenges. I realized that his time needs were distracting me from important help that the other two boys needed. The other two have significant reading delays. They are about in grades 3 and 5 (ages 9 and 11). We are a reading family, treasure good books and do a lot of reading aloud. But so far neither of these two are capable of reading on their own. I own about all the phonics programs out there, and we have daily lessons in phonics and reading, taking it by small steps. I have tried to take a wait and let them mature approach, but now I'm getting concerned, especially for the 5th grader. I'm looking for some direction. I probably should get them tested to determine the specifics of their skills. Thanks.

Where can I find reading help for both high school students and adults?

My 15 year old is in 9th grade and reads on a 6th grade level also my dad who is 53 reads on a 5th to 6th grade level. I need something to help my child read better and actually get interested in reading and I also need something to help my dad read better and comprehend better so that he can get his GED. I have no idea where to look or where to get started. Could you please give me some ideas or advise on what I need to do to get both of them help. Please remember funds are low so we will be trying to do this at home. Thank you.

What tools can I use to teach an adult to read?

Hello Let's Go Learn, I would like to see if you could help direct me. I am going to teach a 23-year-old young man to read. I will need tools to help teach him the basics and I don't know where to start. I found "Hooked on Phonics" on the internet, but the cost was $300.00! Do you have any suggestions about other tools I may use to help? Thank you.
