Re: Visual comprehension toddler
 Author: Linda  Date:   19-06-12 19:47 I completely relate to the 'lining stuff up' thing. My son (HG now 8yo) was completely into that. I advise Playcentre, Small Poppies or other preschool situations so that she can get the stimulation she needs without completely wearing you out. I found that 'bad behaviour' developed if I did not pay attention to varying the stimulation sufficiently. The long concentration span is fantastic for giving you a break too. I used to read the newspaper while son found all the 'H' letters on a page, circling them with crayon was great for his fine-motor skills. The gap between ability to think/read and to write is something that the school seems to make a lot out of so paying attention to developing pre-writing skills is worthwhile. HTH.
