update on daughters reading

Post by April » Tue Nov 18, 2008 1:57 pm

I wrote earlier about being concerned daughter may be dyslexic (she would sound out a word like nap and then say pan). I took her to a developmental optometrist and started her on eye therapy once a month in the office and I do exercises with her daily. What a difference it has made. I didn't even practice reading with her for over a week when we first started doing the exercises and then when I did work on some phonics with her, it went so much better.

Oh April,

Thank you SO much for updating us on this. I was wondering what you decided to do and how your little sweetie was doing. Praise the Lord for giving you the answer you needed! :D

Glad to hear things are going better. It's such a challenge finding the right 'solution' to a reading problem. I'm excited for both you and your daughter and the new reading road you're on! :lol:

So glad to hear she's doing better. I know how you feel. My 9.5 year old son is just able to read 3 letter cvc words at this point but we are plugging along and I can't wait until I can post and say that he was able to knock back a book mostly on his own WITH comprehension!

Rejoicing with you!
