Thank you Stephanie. By the time we start, I think he would be close to the end of the ERs.

R&S Question

I think, my son is about to start Res. to Ref. This will be his first time using HOD since Bigger. I notice in RtR that the LA starts in the last half of R&S so since he hasn’t done the first half of either book, I’m not sure where to start. Could I have some help, please?

Re: Placement for 12 yo

Often finding the right fit can take a bit of pondering. I honestly think you could do either CTC or RTR. Both have advantages placement-wise to your son's situation. I just wanted to mention CTC as a possibility as you are thinking through things, so you don't wonder later if you get going with RT...

Thank you for the suggestion. However, it was not a fit for us, at all. We tried it more than once, at di...
