ALEKS, my personal favorite, uses artificial intelligence software to routinely assess what a student actually knows, reinforce the areas that they need extra help in, and moves them through a pie chart of skills with interactive lessons and explanations that students view along the way. Periodically, new assessments are given and the software individually redesigns the material that your student needs to learn to tailor a math course that is unique to each student. Rather than having chapter tests, students work to complete the entire pie chart. The course is complete when the student has 100% mastery, so the foundation of skills is very strong when a student completes the course. In any math program, students should also practice self-checking and use a Critique System for evaluating their personal problem areas, but with regular evaluations such as these and solid online math programs, students can significantly change the way they feel about math, as well as their skill in math. Online math is an excellent option worth considering, certainly for home-schoolers, but also for any students who want to brush up on skills over the summer.
Know the author has background. This person needs to have a background in education and, ideally, should be trained in the latest educational methods, like brain-based teaching/learning. I personally would never use any materials with my child that did not specifically mention being "brain-based." I am not talking about just "research-based." I see more and more sites claiming to have research-based materials, but what I find is definitely NOT based on how the brains actually learns. Brain-based learning is relatively new in the educational world, but most worksheet sites and materials are using old science or, more often, no science at all.
One of the questions that is often raised, when it comes to speech therapy worksheets and other at-home "do it yourself" speech therapy curricula is whether or not the use of these types of worksheets and syllabi can be used as a substitute for the need for having your child undergo toddler speech therapy from a licensed pediatric speech pathologist? And the answer to that should be the use of speech therapy worksheets and other related materials should only be used as a supplement to receiving professional therapy. In other words, the use of these worksheets should be proctored by a licensed speech pathologist. They should be used as your child has "homework" assignments to be completed in between your weekly speech therapy sessions.
