I had two sons reading easily when they were 5 years old, but my daughter was a very different story. At six years old, no matter how hard she tried, she couldn’t even remember her letters, much less learn to read. I would show a letter to her, talk about the letter, have her draw it, make one out of clay, and so on, but the very next day she would have already forgotten. I couldn’t imagine what the problem could be.
At our first appointment with Miss Kay, we learned about cross-dominance. Kay ran her through her tests, and designed a program specific for her. It was then that the work began! We left Kay’s office armed with “program.” Using the neurodevelopmental approach, I soon started to see glimmers of hope, as my little girl began to recognize and remember different letters. Now, a few months later, she is proudly reading from her Bible, and following along when we sing hymns on Sunday. After years of carrying books around and pretending to read, she is reading on her own! It is exciting for her to be able to read, and thrilling for me to watch. She is now 7 years old, reads well (and loves it!), and is learning to write cursive. What a difference this has made in her life!
