Sibling Rivalry TV

In the therapy room with Taylor, age 6.

Taylor: I know how to spell TV.

Me: Oh yeah? (trying not to laugh)

Taylor: Yeah, but my younger brother doesn't.

how about ultramicroscopicvolcanoconiosis?

What kind of therapy is this? By the time I was 6 I could spell paleontologist and read a book about them.

But I don't know if these are special needs kids or anything.

Cute--doesn't everyone know those?

It's Vision Therapy

and yeah, the kids are at a slower pace than most. I'm really enjoying the work, though--there is a whole recognized mind-body connection in the visual therapy approach that's very interesting. It's amazing how much our brain controls what/how we see...and that opens up a whole new perspective on things, one that I already had, but am able to go further with.

Btw, not surprised you were reading and spelling paleontology at 6. I'm told that I started reading at 4, but unfortunatley wasn't introduced to more sophisticated subject matter until much later.

I was going to say (with apologies to Wm Shakespeare), "TV or not TV" but I couldn't even get the English channel on it. Loved everybody's comments.

I started reading around 3 or 4 myself - my mother said my first word was "book" much to her chargin, I assume. But shortly after that I developed a dinosaur fetish and my Dad took me to the Peabody Museum and had me meet the aforementioned Paleontologist.

How cool was that though? Thanks Dad!
