The Star Player..........

There's never a dull moment!  Tonight, my older 2 girls played their last regular season basketball game.  That in itself is a story as they are the smallest school in the division &  even with every Jr. High girl playing, there are only a couple of extra players on the bench. It makes for a long game when their aren't enough nearly enough girls to fill 2 lines,but wow are these girls in good shape!  In spite of having a very small school, we are fortunate that every one of the girls plays & we are thankful that this allows us to have a team.  In spite of this, their grit, determination & the fact that all of the girls really work as a team, has allowed them to be ranked number one as we head into the playoffs! Now, with feisty & determined big sisters like that you can see where K gets her spirit from!

Usually K is really good about staying on the side of the court during a game & I can't even remember the last time that she tried to wander onto the court.  Tonight however, she wanted to play basketball!  I reminded her that "no, you are not allowed to play" & she seemed resigned to sit on the sidelines.  After the girls were done playing, we stayed to watch the boys.  At one point K decided to rummage through her big sister's backpack & found her game jersey which she immediately decided she should wear.

 They had just blown the whistle to stop the play in the game that was going on, and as soon as the whistle blew to start it again, the smallest player on the sidelines streaked across the court & was right in the middle of the action under the basketball net before I had any idea what was going on.  Thankfully, they blew the whistle once again before those big boys accidently ran her over & within seconds, her big sister T had retrieved her from the court & once again she sat on the sidelines, but not without a lecture first on who was allowed to play basketball!  I did get a bit of an argument from K because she insisted that included her. After all, she was wearing a team jersey, right?  Until she went running out to join the action, I had no idea that she thought she should play if she dressed in a uniform.  I'll have to remember that the next time she dresses for a game!

She did get a little basketball action after the game though.......

in her basketball dress...........ummm.............I mean jersey!

A Question About Flashcards

"Just a quick question for you. I am working on flashcards for my 20 month old. I was just going to do photos of animals and family members with the word underneath since we are just working on naming items, not reading. Do you have any info about what is the best size to use and if the fast flash method works the same with photos?"

First of all, why not put a picture on one side & a word on the other & teach  both at the same time?  It is a much better use of your time, you'll get a much earlier start & if you try to teach the word with flashcards later.  If you do the same ones later, it is possible that your little one may not find it as exciting.

When you say that you are working on naming, do you mean that you wanting your 20 month old to respond with the name or do you plan to just give input? Our approach was just to input only, so that we were never pressuring our daughter.  Only very recently, at age 4.5 have we ever asked K to read to us.  Before, she just read to us when she felt like it.

Yes, fast flashing works for photos.  We have done this for encylopedic knowledge cards - blog post to follow on this soon.  

I've loaned my How to Teach Your Baby out right now,  but I'll try to remember what I can about card sizes. I'm sure at that age we were already using a 4 X 5 inch card, because I remember my 2 youngest girls reading them together just before K's 2nd birthday.  Usually, I used Little Reader's print function set to put a word & pic on each page, folded them in 1/2 & laminated.  Do you have any idea how well your child can see? If in doubt, go larger because it is not uncommon for kids with Down syndrome to have vision problems. 

It's wonderful that you are starting with familiar people & animals.  This is always a great way to keep kids interested in learning.

I hope this helps.  Please feel free to ask any other questions you have.

A Question About Naturally Better Kids

"I have another question...I noticed on your blog that you have a link to "Naturally Better Kids". I looked into it and have been reading the Kindle version of the book. It is very interesting. Would you mind sharing why you like this information, and what things that she recommends that you do with K, and what difference it has made."
Actually, when I first started reading that book, I thought "Wow, this is so familiar!"   We have done almost all of the same things.   We are careful about keeping K's diet natural most of the time, we use craniosacral therapy. use natural supplements, do a neurodevelopmental (ND) program, using natural health care providers, have extremely high expectations etc. Some of those things we have done a little differently though, such as a different ND program, as well as we have not done NAET, but all in all, our approaches have been very similar.

More Questions About Reading & Speech

Here are another series of questions.  My responses are in black to make it easier to understand.
I have a few questions. I have been reading your blog for only a short time. You introduced me to so many wonderful resources and responded to my questions on BrillKids forum. If any of my questions are too personal or you don't want to answer, that is okay. I just wanted to ask.

1. What have you done so far that you are so glad you did? Something that made a difference in K. development and progress. 
I think the most beneficial thing that we have done is to have very high expectations. A healthy diet avoiding artificial flavours, colours, processed foods  and other junk is very important as is K's neurodevelopmental program using Glenn Doman's books & later, a program with ICAN.

2. Is there anything that was just a waste of time?
I'm sure their were  some things that were a waste of time, but off the top of my head I can't think of anything too important. Not anything that has made a lasting difference anyways.  Any time spent with your child is teaching them something, so even if we weren't getting the intended benefit, time spent with your child is never wasted.

3. Are you using a program based on something like NACD or other neurodevelopment program? If so, what made you decide to do it and is it worth the time?
Yes, we have been doing a program with ICAN for the last year or so.
4. How long were you working on flashcards before you noticed increased speech and reading skills?
This is a hard question to answer, because K was too young to be verbal when we started.  We did words from about age 6 months on. I have never experienced life with K being able to read but not talk because she learned to read first. As she became verbal, it became more obvious as to how much she was reading.

What I can say, is that the words that she learned through reading were spoken much more clearly than those she learned through hearing us speak.  Even now, she often reads more clearly than she speaks. 
5. You mentioned that K. is reading words at a 4th grade level, do you have an idea of her level of understanding/comprehension?
We have not tested her comprehension, but at risk of underestimating her, I think she is probably at a first grade level.  She is certainly able to follow written instructions well, and can tell me about a story she is reading. Sometimes I wonder if she is even at a 2nd grade level mainly because she enjoys reading that level of story best and seems to follow the story, but it is hard for me to tell. 

I'm sure she is not comprehending at a 4th grade level, but on the other hand, I would not have expected any 4 year old to comprehend at that level.
6. How is she with conversation and interactions with others?

She talks a lot.  The other day on the way home from town, I listened to a 20 minute monologue which in my family was likely only surpassed by K's 9 year old sister who truly taught me how much a little girl can talk:) I give this same big sister lots of credit for teaching K to talk too! K can tell me who she played with at preschool, whether or not she played on the playground, how she got hurt when playing in the gym, etc.  We always make her order for herself in a restaurant & discuss what sides & drink she want etc. It is rare that we have to interpret now.  She asks lots of questions and appreciates thorough answers too. She is always asking about the rest of the family. Where they are, what they are doing.  Of course, she is very good at getting her needs met. She is starting to joke around more, and think its funny to say that her sisters are crazy. Just a quick random example of her speech - Just now she was trying to open a cupboard door and something got caught.  She said.  "Mom, I can't get it.  I need some help please." She likes to talk on the phone and always has something to say!  She seemed to be a little harder to understand on the phone, however, lately I have noticed that she is being understood much more and able to keep the conversation flowing.

As for interactions with others, she has not always been the most social kid as she was pretty shy.  She does like playing with other kids and adults that she knows, but it takes her a while to warm up to strangers. In the last 6 or 8 months however, we have seen huge changes.  Her preschool teachers were just amazed at the difference in her over the summer.  She never wanted me to leave, and now she is so comfortable staying at preschool by herself.  I'm told that she even lets the others know when they are breaking the rules now!  She enjoys the other kids, and always talks about them, but she is also quite happy to play independently at times also.
The reason for some of my questions is that a speech pathologist told us that teaching our daughter to read would not help her be social and have conversations with others, which will be more important for her in the future. But her words seem to be coming more since we started with flashcards and Little Reader type programs and videos. There are so many opinions and resources, but only so much time. I want to maximize our time and use approaches that will help her. Thank you for opening up and allowing our questions.
 I am always amazed at the reasons some professionals have for not teaching reading. How can learning and understanding new words prevent speech?  The more words she understands means more words at her disposal to use during conversations.  I can't imagine how that is detrimental! I would love for your speech therapist to come have a conversation with my daughter. K has had very little speech therapy - 3 sessions in the last 2 years - Yay for government programs! (insert sarcastic smiley here) and to be honest, in the dozen or so sessions she has had in her life, less than 1/2 of them have been productive.  We were fortunate though, to get 3 sessions last spring with a wonderful SLP.  She included reading in many of K's speech activities which was wonderful.

One thing that I think has really helped is that we often try to use common phrases for reading practice.  If you wanted to focus on conversation, then do just that.  Teach her to read things like " Hello, how are you?" or whatever phrases you want to teach.

I always listen to the opinions of K's therapists, however, I have come to rely on my mother's instincts as well as other opinions, research etc, to help make my final decision.  I am realizing that my instincts are rarely wrong. Go with your instincts - if you are noticing more words and your instincts tell you it is helping then go for it!

If you have any more questions, please feel free to ask away and good luck!

Monki See - Around the House DVD Review

Recently, Krista of Intellectual Baby sent us a copy of her latest DVD MonkiSee Around the House to review.  Earlier we reviewed the MonkiSee Action Words DVD.   K really enjoyed it, & when this new video arrived in the mail, she was so excited to see her buddies Skip & Howie on the cover of a new DVD.

This fun & exciting DVD teaches sight words for over 25 common words of things found around the house.


K is getting much more picky about her choice of DVDs but she loves this one.  I really like that this video moves quite quickly from one image or movie clip to the next.  Although K has a really good attention span for her age, I think this is part of the reason that it keeps K's attention longer & this is also great for young babies who do not have very long attention span.

One thing I happened to notice this time, is that when the words are shown on the screen, they are shown in different locations.  I have recently learned that from a neurodevelopmental point of view, this is also a better way to show flashcards than to just show them in the same position all the time, so it was nice to see that on the video too.

The red lettering used in MonkiSee Around the House is also great as according to Glenn Doman of Institutes of Achievement of Human Potential, this is most appealing to babies & will keep their attention longer.

This video has very clear concise pictures so it is obvious what the word represents which is very important so babies are not confused about the meaning of the words.

Because K is reading so well, she knows most, or perhaps all of the words on this video already, but for a child who is not already reading these words, this would be a fun & exciting way to teach them.

K loved the songs on this video & is already starting to sing along. A video that encourages speech is something that I really like to see.  K comes from a family of girls, so I think she really relates to young Olivia who does a wonderful & very professional job playing her role in this DVD. K also really enjoys seeing other kids in books & videos, so the many short video clips of other kids was very exciting for her.

This fun & exciting video is an great addition to our educational DVD library!

Here is a link to the MonkiSee Around the House webpage if you are interested in learning more.

This review was written in exchange for a free copy of  MonkiSee Around the House .  I was not paid for this review, nor was I required to write a positive review.  This is my honest, unbiased opinion on this product.

Questions & Answers

I'm been so busy lately that I'm having trouble keeping up with blogposts. I have quite a few questions left to answer & will get to them as soon as possible, but I'm going to take a short break from them to catch up on a few other posts that need to get done sooner.  The next one will be a review of Intellectual Babies's Latest DVD entitled Around the House.

Time Flies - Math is Fun!

Life has been a whirlwind lately.  I'd love to be able to protest loudly enough to be able to slow it down!  Not only are we busy with the day to day - it's ski race season for my older girls, so we seem to be running from ski hill to ski hill, but time is just flying by so fast.  I will have a 2nd teenager in about a month - I'm too young for that!

Anyways, I often wonder about the amount of time we spend each day on K's neurodevelopmental program & other learning games.  We have been been busier than usual lately - I took my older daughters to a skier cross race in the mountains for 4 days last week while K stayed home with her Daddy (I rarely leave her or any of my kids, & although I had a great time with my older girls, I missed her terribly). K read a few books to her Daddy, but I think that's about all the program they did.  Then on Tuesday to Thursday of this week, we went on a short holiday to a nearby city. We were so busy with activities & shopping that again, we did very little program.

When we got home last night, my husband & older 3 girls rushed off to ski practice at our local hill & K & I stayed behind.  We were both tired & had no plans to do any program, but K found the large plastic tub that I keep many of her program materials in, she was so excited to find her math book & insisted that we needed to work on it. Later, she suggested a few other activities.

I was so relieved to see how much she enjoys these activities & misses them when we are not consistent.  K is not the kind of kid that just goes along with everything, so I often have to be very creative to get her to do some of the activities, & it is only recently after showing her some videos of other kids doing her math program that she has suddenly become excited about math, so this is huge for us!

UPDATE:  I actually wrote this a couple of weeks ago, & once more since then we had a busy 4 days away with skiing & family functions.  When we got home, the same thing happened.  I had no plans to do program, but K dragged out her math book & was so excited to work on it!

Another Question Post on Reading

Hi, I have a 3.5 year old son with DS that we adopted last year. He spent the first 2+ years of his life in an orphanage. Where do I start teaching him to read? He loves books, and loves to learn. His attention span is amazing for all things educational. My problem is knowing what to do and having the right amount of material to cover. I feel inadequate, the more I read, the more confused I get. I just need the bottom line, Thanks!

Congrats on your adoption! 

Don't worry about doing it "wrong".  Any extra stimulation he gets is going to be beneficial. I am so busy, especially in the winter that very often I am not able to be nearly as consistent as I would like, however I am still so thrilled with K's progress. 

If he already loves books, that is a big help, & a good attention span in wonderful.  Just make sure you quit when he is still enjoying it so that learning stays fun. When you read to him, run your finger under the words to help bring his attention to the text as well as to help him become familiar with the individual words.  

Flashcards are wonderful for a visual learner, which most kids with DS are, so of course I would start there. Have you tried Little Reader yet? Their flashcards have wonderful, clear concise pictures & many are free. The above link sends you to the details of their special needs discount which they are VERY generous with. 

As for the amount of material to cover, I don't think there is an exact right or wrong.  You have to consider his interests, enjoyment & as you mentioned, attention span.  In the beginning, when K was only about 6 months old, I did sets of 10 or 12 flashcards (word & pic) & showed them  about 3 times a day, but as K seemed to learn faster, I gradually moved up to an average of 45 words per week. 

If you haven't been to the Unlimited Potential forum yet, this is a great resources thread.  There are lots of resources mentioned that will be very helpful.

Have you checked out my important posts page yet?  It's a work in progress, but I'm trying to compile a section on teaching reading tips.

Lastly, have very high expectations for your little boy. Give him lots of input, lots of exercise, explain things, & most of all enjoy him!

If you want anymore specifics, please ask away:)

The Alphabet is Boring:)

Here is another recent question:

In your blog you mentioned that your daughter knew her alphabet by the age of 2.
What program or strategy did you use to teacher her this skill?

To be honest, I did not teach her the alphabet & did not plan to teach her until she was close to school age - but K had her own timetable & taught herself!

K did watch the Love & Learning videos  on & off from when she was about 1 to 2 years of age.  We also had the Leap Frog alphabet fridge magnets on our fridge & a set of letter fridge magnets & probably a few other toys with letters that allowed her to learn them on her own. She surprised me one day in the hardware store, when she started pointing out letters on the signs.  I still remember my shock & amazement when she toddled over to a  Shamwow display rack, pointed at the M & said M,  mmmm.

As I stated earlier, I did not plan to teach her letters & don't see the point in purposefully teaching this to a very young child.  The alphabet really has no meaning to a toddler & won't be much fun to learn.  Because sight words are the most effective way to teach a toddler (teaching phonics is really important, just not at this age - click on this post as well as this one for my reasoning for this), I don't think that teaching the alphabet is helpful.

Sight words are so much more fun! Put yourself in a toddler's shoes.  Would you rather learn that A says aaaa, or that M.O.M. spells Mom? We focused on the most important words in K's life first.  Family & pet names, favorite toys, foods & animals. Reading needs to be fun at this age in order to foster a lifelong love of reading.

If however, you have a school age, or almost school age child, letters will probably be more beneficial to help them keep up with what the other kids are learning.  We did intend to teach K letters by about age 5, before we realized that she had taught herself the alphabet.

Some good resources that I can think of off the top of my head are the many iPad/iPhone apps available.  We like LetterSchool lately for printing practice, but I think it would also help a child learn the letters.

There are some good DVD's out there but my tired brain doesn't seem to be able to come up with a title tonight!  I'll try to edit this with an example.

This is a similar product to the one that k used to teach herself the alphabet: LeapFrog Fridge Phonics Magnetic Alphabet.

Alphabet letters are everywhere, making it so easy to incorporate fun games into everyday life.  There are big foamy bathtub letters & letter stickers to do different projects with. Our local Dollar Store has tons of different types of letters in the toy aisles -you could do so many projects with them.  Pictures, paintings, make one of those find the letter I Spy bags or put the letters in rice or popcorn for a tactile experience.  Use tweezers to grab the letters to work on letter recognition & fine motor at the same time.  Look for letters on signs, etc when going for walks. 

................and lastly, of course good old flashcards - They are tons of commercial ones available, or I'm sure BrillKids has some too.

Answers............ Why don't I use K's name on my blog?

I ended up having a number of questions on a wide variety of subjects, so I thought I would  do a series of answers posts.  Here is the first one:

"I am curious as to why you don't use your daughter's  full name on your blog.

The biggest reason is that I question whether or not I have the right as K's mother to take away her privacy by sharing her life publicly when she is too young to fully understand.  I have thought  about this often, but have decided to share some details because I feel that the good that can come from sharing her accomplishments & our experiences out weigh the negatives.  When K was a baby, I hunted the far corners of the internet to try to find others who were doing the same sorts of therapies as I was & only recently have I been able to find a few others.  I do try to be respectful of K's feelings & consider how she will feel about what I am posting in the future.

Perhaps I shouldn't worry about this so much.  Lots of bloggers share so much more information, but I just feel more comfortable erring on the side of caution.  I do share more information at times, of course with moms that I meet in person, or those that I am in contact with often.  I have done a couple of public talks about my experiences too, & off course I've shared a lot more with those audiences as well.

For the record, I have asked my older daughter's permissions before sharing videos & stories about them publicly & will continue to discuss it with them & K as they get older & understand more.

Last Call for Questions!

My next post will be a post with my response to questions from our blog readers. so far, I've just received a couple of questions via email, so if anyone has any other questions, please feel free to send me an email at or just leave it in the comments on this post.

Any kind of questions are welcome, more about what we do with K, what K or the rest of our family is like, or anything else you can think of.


OK, I have to confess, the other reason for the 2nd call is that we have been so busy with family events & ski races, that I've been too busy to finish that post & this is about my limit for typing on my phone while traveling on a bumpy highway. I'll get to the question post soon, I promise!

My Reasons For Teaching My Child to Read

 The question "If you had only the length of an elevator ride to explain why you are teaching your child, what would you say?" was asked on a forum which does have some other parents of kids with Trisomy 21, but is mainly composed of parents of typical children who are keenly interested in all areas of early learning.

My reply is probably going to be very different than many of the parents here.  When I first started teaching my daughter, my goal was for her to be able to read at a beginning level by grade one.  She has far exceeded my expectations & taught me so much more than I have ever taught her.

When K was born with Down syndrome 4.5 years ago, several well meaning doctors & nurses told me that she would probably be very happy & love music.  They tried to be encouraging, but their expectations were very low.  It wasn't until I got home & started researching on the internet that I learned about a very small minority of parents who were teaching their kids with DS to read.  I honestly found it difficult to believe & more than once I have admitted  blush that if, 5 years ago, you had told me that your child with DS was reading at almost a 4th grade level at 4.5 years, I would have politely said " Oh, that's wonderful." & probably walked away snickering. As I said, my daughter has taught me a lot!

I really didn't believe it, but I was intrigued enough, that by the time K was 8 months old, I had built her a Doman style crawling track & to that same doctor's surprise & disbelief (he had to see it before he would believe it), she was crawling! I was so excited by that success, that at around the same time, I started showing K the large, red, Doman style flashcards. Of course, ever the skeptic, I really had my doubts, so I was a "closet flash card Mom" for the longest time, but sure enough, just a few months after K's first birthday, she began showing me that she was learning some of the words!  She knew many sight words & had self taught herself all of the letters & sounds of the alphabet by age 2. She read her first commercial print book that we had not practiced at age 3.5.

Back to my goals - I had originally hoped K would read by grade 1.  I had 2 reasons for this:

1. I wanted the teachers to see a little girl who had potential to learn just like the other students in her class & I wanted them to have very high expectations because the higher the expectations, the more success a child will have.

2.  I wanted K to be able to pick up her books & read the directions, so that if she didn't understand or hear the teacher properly, then at least she could read & try to figure it out for herself.  She is already doing this by the way - she reads her math workbook instructions all the time.

Now, at age 4.5, my concerns have changed.  We have always planned to hold K back in school (as we did her older sister who was born in December), to allow her to have one more year of maturing as well as physical growth because she is quite tiny.  Rather than worrying about her keeping up, at least in the early years of school, I am worried about her being bored - it is a funny dilemma & one that I look forward to working on. LOL

My reasons for teaching her are still the same though.  I want her teachers to see that she has just as much potential as any other student & therefore, they need to have very high expectations. Also, although K speaks well for her age, she is not speaking as well as most typical kids her age. When the other kids in kindergarten are learning that the letter A say aaa, & she is already reading novels, I anticipate that she can work on catching up on speech.

I hope it's a long elevator ride, because I wrote a bit of a novel!


I just wanted to add to this a little bit. When I talked about goals, I missed at least one. I also was hoping that by teaching K to read from an early age that she would become proficient enough that reading wouid be a joy - not a chore for her. All 3 of her older sisters, as well as myself love reading. To the point where my daughters, like their mother before them, often get caught reading in bed. The subject of reading in math or science class has also come up recently during a parent-teacher conference(thankfully, we are not dealing with any worse behavioral issues:), & I turned to my dear husband & told him that he would have to be responsible for speaking with the offender. As a not exactly reformed sneaking a book into my desk offender myself, I just didn't feel I was responsible enough to deal with the situation. LOL! This is what I wanted for K, a true joy & voracious appetite for books & thankfully, I am confident already that I'll be confiscating her flashlights at bed time one day too!

I Love This Quote!

A friend posted this quote on FaceBook the other day:

"I am looking for a lot of men who have a infinite capacity to not know what can't be done"

Henry Ford

Henry Ford's name was a common one in our household growing up.  My Dad - K's Grandpa loves old vehicles & K has had the chance to ride in the rumble seat of Grandpa's favorite car occasionally. I had not heard this quote until recently, but I think there is so much truth in it.  If we don't realize that something is not doable, then we just might try to do it & will often see great success.

 K & Grandpa's Model A

When we first started doing early learning activities as well as a neurodevelopmental program with K, I often thought it would have been great if I had gone to school in the early childhood education or some sort of therapy field.  I often found myself wondering in what direction to go, or trying to figure out what was the next step in development that I should be working on - & I still do sometimes. I do figure out where to go next, but I know it requires a lot more research than it would for someone with some background in this area.    We started K's ICAN program about a year ago & that helps a lot as most of it is all set out for me now, however, I still find that I have to be creative & look for new ideas in order to keep her excited & I'm still floundering at times:), but although I don't always know which exact step to take next, I always seem to find more than enough activities to keep K busy & learning.

 .....................and lately................... I am starting to appreciate my lack of understanding! If I had all of that knowledge, would I have also had the perception that my daughter could not do A, because kids with DS don't learn to do A until a certain age, or even that typical kids don't learn to do B until they are _____ years of age?  Would it have held me back from trying some of the things that we have taught K at such an early age?   Certainly, I never would have thought to teach my baby to read right? I will never know the answer to those questions, but I believe that things happen for a reason & I am exactly where I need to be in this journey of life right now - for myself & my family.

Once we started down the early learning path with K, we have just kept wandering on.   I never considered teaching my older kids geography, yet K knows most of the continents & a number of countries on the map & can read many more.  Last week we decided to teach her how to cut with a knife & my current goal is to teach her to tie her shoes. These are a few examples, but I could go on & on, so, until I know better ;)  on we will go, perhaps with blinders on at times, but always moving forwards!

The Funnix Reading Progam is Free Again This Month

 I have heard from a couple of sources that the Funnix reading program is free at the moment - I think this promotion goes until mid February.  Here is a post I did on it last year:   Funnix

Here is a link to the Funnix website to download it:
Free Funnix Reading Program
