How Super Why Has Helped My Kids Learn to Read
Did you tell yourself that you would limit technology for your child before they were born? I did too. I believed all the hype about TV being bad, and I don’t mean an hour of TV I thought my kids were never going to watch it. Little did I know that life had other plans in store for me.
Both of my children have been in therapy for speech, OT and education. Korey will receive limited services at school next year while Kyler is still getting therapy at home.
When your child doesn’t talk, you throw any rules you made out the window to do everything you can to help them reach the point of saying “I love you” someday. What really helped both of my children was watching children shows with letters and numbers but the show that helped the most was Super Why.
Netflix as Speech Therapy
When I started to notice that they would try to repeat what Wyatt and his friends were saying on the show, I became more involved in the episodes. Using Netflix to watch it I can easily pause the tablet at any place we may be and start repeating the word slowly or having my youngest tell me the letters when I point to them.
We quickly started noticing a vast improvement in their listening skills as well. The therapists were so impressed and I gave them the honest answer, we found a breakthrough with a show and we started to work with it more.
