At what age did K first start reading?
I am not a good record keeper & lost track of how old K was when she started reading. The other day I stumbled on the post I wrote on a forum when K was 15 months old. I copied it here:
K is 15 months old. I have been doing a reading program since she was about 6 months, however it has been much more organized since I discovered the Little Reader Program. I have never tested her before today. We tested her with about 10 different word cards. She got every one right! K has down syndrome. Thirty years ago I would have been told to put her in an institution because she was unteachable ( I could never have done that). Even when she was born I was given old & outdated information about her potential. I admit I had never heard of teaching babies to read a year ago & would not have believed she could do this. The sky is the limit for my little girl! Thanks to every one here for all the help and information & for a place to come to celebrate with others who understand.
Thanks again from one proud Momma!
Wow! I'm glad I found this again!
