  1. Nice! I'm a blog follower and I've been struggling to do a card based reading program and think computer with apre-made curriculum is calling. I applied for the special need grant last week at brillkids but still haven't heard back :(

  6. I would love this. I have made flash cards, and made powerpoint slide shows with the words on each of her signing time videos. We adopted her a little over a year ago, she had no language at that time. Its been a beautiful journey. Thank you for sharing.

  7. I am now following your blog! :) I have been searching out a reading program for Evan who is turning 2 at the end of this month and I know this will benefit him greatly!! His speech has been VERY slow coming- he doesn't really have any words he uses consistently besides dadadada and /a/ for cat.

  11. I am a follower of your blog since the past summer. Your blog is very helpful to me because this is how I knew about the fast flashing method and ending laminating all my flash cards. I also learned about the Littler math program and downloaded the booklet where I am taking ideas on how to teach the number to my son. He is currently matching number versus quantities represented by dots. All this thanks to your blog.

    Little Reader semester one will benefit my son because the use generalization methods so the child will recognized the word and its meaning even when they look a little bit different. My son seems to have generalization issues, so I this will be a great help for him.

  13. I am now a follower! BrillKids semester 1 would benefit my son Ben (DS, adopted at the age of 2) because he missed out on 2 years of early intervention, as he was in an orphanage. We need all the help we can get to help him reach his full potential. Thank you for this opportunity!

  14. I am following your blog now. I have tried several different reader programs, but found that my son does better with a video and the two I've tried are flashcard based only. I am hoping the computer program would be more enticing for him!

  18. Just found your blog & it's been very helpful already! Was looking for recommendations for glasses for kids with DS & found your recommendation for http://specs4us.com/. Now I'm really interested in the little reader! I believe this could open up the opportunities for my niece to continue her advancement.

  19. I love your review of the Brill Kids Reading program. We have done Love and Learning with Emily but I would love to try Brill kids with her. Your blog is so informative. Emily is 2 1/2 and reading around 30 sight words. She is starting to say more words and I like the idea of using the reading program to improve speech.

  25. Just signed on to follow your blog. I'm homeschooling my 7yo daughter who has Ds and, while she knows lot's of sight words (last count over 130 I think,) she struggles with fluency. It's not quite one halting word @ a time but close. I've been looking for ways to help her with this - perhaps you've found my answer! Thanks for the opportunity!!

  26. I'm now following your blog and have read your blog on Little Reader as well as viewed their video quick tour. Very impressive program! I've just started this year homeschooling my 9yr old child who happens to have DS and autism. So far we're both really enjoying the change. Right now I'm using 'bits & pieces' of different programs/approaches to teach reading. But a program like Little Reader that is so extensive, complete and flexible looks like it would be the perfect fit as an approach. Thanks for blogging about this & putting it on the homeschooling and downsyndrome listserv!

  30. Now following you. It's wonderful to read of all you are doing with your daughter. My son won't sit still for flashcards, but loves the computer so I think Little Reader would be a perfect fit for us.

  35. I love your blog. I am looking for something to help my 5-year-old son learn to read and to help his verbal skills. He's in speech therapy but I want to supplement it. I've tried "My Baby Can Read" but that doesn't seem to interest him very much.

  36. I just found your blog and I am now following it. I had never heard of the reading program from Brillkids. I just went there and I believe it would really help Wyatt learn to read. He has quite a few sight words but he is getting tired of plain flash cards. I like the many ways they provide to learn. I am also going to look at the math program. I have also liked them on facebook and joined their forum. Thank you for the info.

  46. Sounds fantastic! My son is definitely interested in the written word. He loves flashcards. But he's also super excited about the computer/iPad these days, so I'm quite interested in teaching him to read using this program.

  47. Hi, I'm following you now, was doing the blog hop thing a bit late, but so glad i found you. I would love to implement this with my daughter. She's 3 1/2 and I'm struggling to find a good program that will work with her. I look forward to reading more.

  48. I love reading your posts about teaching K to read. They are what inspired me to start teaching Miss K how to read. I had ignored BrillKids for a while though because we are a Mac family, but my mom gave me her old PC laptop, so we are doing the free trial now (on the iPad - see my post on BabyCenter). I can see us continuing on with the full program as Miss K loves doing her reading, and responds well to the iPad.

    I think it would be awesome to have a copy of semester one of BrillKids because we have struggled to find the 'right' reading program for Brady. He has been able to identify alphabet letters and has known their sounds since he was 4, and was doing some beginning phonetic reading in pre-k at 5, but the school has been unable to move his reading level along :( He is at about an early 1st grade reading level and he is in 3rd grade now. I have been searching for just the right program for him and I think this could be IT! Thanks so much!
