Question of the day: Do some folks see this all the time?

~~~

It's not that people actually see the correctly-written words as if the letters are all scrambled. This text is an example of why "whole language" training works for many people. Many of us are quite good at filling in the gaps/ "visual closure." Having context and a good sense of grammar helps-- it gives us a "lead" on what comes next. So fluent readers do not get stumped from the above.

Whether people see the correctly-written text AS IF it is jumbled is a different matter:

People who struggle with reading (dyslexia, for example) may also have vision problems which interfere with their ability to keep their eyes on track. Often times, they are not yet sophisticated readers, and they are reading the letters out of order, and trying to fit together the sounds to predict possible words which contain those sounds. Often, their tracking problems interfere with their ability to sound out the word in the correct letter order.

Some children do see the letters out of order, if their eyes are not well-coordinated. The temporary doubling and returning to single can make it look like the letters are moving or dancing on the page.

Both of the above challenges can be readily supported and remediated with vision therapy.

The power of communication without words...

"I'm studying music therapy. I just finished observing a music program for children with disabilities, and I'm taking notes."
"So what's something you observed?"
"Many of the children had some form of autism. And it seemed that playing music together gave them the satisfaction of contributing to a group and forming relationships, without the pressure of having to speak or maintain eye contact."

Dr. Samantha Slotnick shared Humans of New York's photo.

Some of you have seen the Humans of New York posts. Personally, I am amazed at how so many of them are so personally touching.

I do particularly enjoy the posts with kids in them... they do say the darndest things. :)

Looking forward to the release of this Little book for Little Humans. Enjoy!

Pretty much the exact same time we signed a deal for the HONY book, we began working on a HONY kids' book too. Over the last couple years, it went through a few different concepts and rewrites, until we ended up with the treasure that is LITTLE HUMANS. The final product ended up being a short narrative about what it means to be a little human. On each page there is a kid portrait which illustrates each aspect of little humanity. (Several of the photos have not been posted to the blog, which required a lot of self-restraint, because I especially love the kid posts.)

Little Humans was so fun to write, I'm really proud of it, and am really excited for everyone to see it. I must also disclose that my girlfriend brought instrumental kid-knowledge to the table, gathered from years of intensive babysitting.

The book is for ages 2 to 7, and will be released on October 7th. You can preorder it here:
