Extra, Extra, 'READ' All About It!

Today was a big day for my sweet Corbyn. He advanced to Level D in the Take Home Reading Library and I could not be more thrilled. Now I know that there are a lot of other first graders that are on higher levels than Corbyn, but this truly is amazing for my little guy. At the beginning of the year, he was on Level A and was really struggling. When I would read with him, he would get frustrated with himself and clearly he was not grasping the phonetic concept. Since he has been in Miss Eliason's class, he has excelled so fast! After the first month of school, we decided to change his IEP to include some Resource classes during the day, where he would work on reading with the Resource teachers. I am so pleased with his progress!

When Corbyn was first diagnosed with Autism, I remember being so concerned that he would struggle with learning how to read. I thought it would be years before he would understand phonetics and I never thought he would be reading this well in Frist Grade. I am so proud of Corbyn and how hard he has worked to get this far. Good job, buddy!
