OK she might not need to read a book but she could for example, read signs when she gets older, as the letters would be big enough.
And how are you supposed to learn to spell if you don't learn letters. Presumably she will use a keyboard at some point to communicate? Not argumentative, just interested in how you would spell if you couldn't 'read'.
What do you want her to do instead of reading? They have to teach her something at school.
Well I think if she's in ms it will be a significant part of theday forall
Indeed it is for ds3 in his snu
and rightly so; they may oneday have glassesor similar that enable youdd tosee- I am certain that would be far simopler than cures for most disabilities, as it seems she couldread if big enough. And reading is so important; have just been really laid into as thich and undeserving of my degree elsewhere on Mn, which is all to do with how I prsent myself throught typing with bad eyesight, and simple things like shopping take forever because ofreading the labels on food.
I think it is syuch an important key skill in a world dominated by NT's, esp. as I presume shedoesn't have enough movement for braille?
(Peachy I cannot spell or type well either. I did not stop me getting a PhD -I just had to work harder!) Riven there are computerised divices for blowing text up word by word or letter by letter for people with low vision. Also text readers that talk but spell out words they do not recognise. I realise there will be challenges in using these for dd2. And thats just today - there may be cleverer things in the future.
imo you need to be able to read to understand the world. to access clicker(or is it cricker) you need to be able to read. IMO teaching kids with cp to read is a good thing and one I would never sneer at,
There was a lady at slimming club who was almost totally blind. She worked in a shop and could operate the till because she had a device with a screen which magnified whatever came up on the till. By holding it up close she could see what it said. I'm sure there will be such things for reading when your dd is bigger, if there aren't already. I'm frequently amazed at the rate technology develops nowadays so who know what the future holds?
dh has VI colleges who use HUGE* font on screen some of teh time, Reader soft ware isn't the right choice for all applications and isn't usefull for the kind of coding & proofreading stuff they are doing. Ok for e-mail tho.
I work as an amenuensis for people who are registered blind but doing university degrees. They use equipment that does magnify things to this size - please do let her learn to read - it just adds more options to her life.
