The more he reads the faster he will get. There is a time for audio, and
that time is a long car ride when other people are listening, or maybe for a
15 minute break after an hour of Braille reading, but unless they are
letting every other child sit and listen to a book then he can't either.

So last night at parent teacher conference I find out that they have been
allowing our son in six grade to do all audiobooks. Reason why I don't know.
The language arts teacher said will you please consider allowing him to do
this after I stated that this was concerning to me. Because he says I was
reading to be enjoyable. Excepting all thoughts on this. Mine is No No No.
Must have Braille under fingers. If their  concern is slowness and enjoyment
the only way to get that is with repetition.
