After intense training, and hard work recovering from sight word damage, Mattie read her first Dr. Seuss book all by herself! I mean REALLY read it - decoded it, not rehearsed memorized word lists.
Hooray! When she finished, she squealed with delight! She was so pleased with herself. :)
This is a huge accomplishment for Mattie. She has auditory processing challenges among others that have really made learning to read for her a difficult process. I'll post on her journey to literacy another time. For now I just want to say HOORAY!!!!
