MeganW Posted September 20, 2012 Share Posted September 20, 2012 My 7 1/2 year old DD has had vision issues that have caused major reading delays, but with vision therapy, she has made significant progress. Her phonics are now at a 2nd grade level, though comprehension is still way behind. Here's the problem. She still can't reason things out. For example, she had this problem the other day: "I am green or brown. I live near the water, and like to sit on lily pads. I say ribbit. I am a fr____." She had no problem reading it. Then she answered "frind" (friend). The next one said something like: "I am a white, and am good with cookies. I come from a cow. If you turn me over, I spill. I am m____." Again, no trouble reading it, and yet she wrote "mesy" instead of milk. Would you worry about this? Or just chalk it up to oddly creative and unlogical? If it makes a difference, this kid had an APGAR at birth of 2, a Level 3 brain bleed early on that resolved on its own, and is possibly dyslexic. But of the triplets, she was the first/ most advanced developmentally from birth through probably age 4 or so. (The vision became a real issue after that.)
