Max’s reading is coming along nicely, so much so he is getting an award at school for his reading perseverence and positive attitude towards it! He is trying hard to read road signs and billboards, newspaper headlines etc. He always says ‘what does that say?” so I ask him what he thinks and he gives it a go without hesitation – a major positive step. The eyetracking exercises we did really helped as once we started I noticed that when reading left to right he ever so slightly moved his head so the exercises were the right course of action to strengthen those eye muscles….so simple yet so effective!
And as all your research shows, there was a definite plateau of progress where everything seemed very challenging and processing things took a very long time, however now he seems to be on an upward trend and rocketing along.
