Teaching your own child at home is surprisingly easy. Mothers have been teaching their children practical life skills forever, and they have done so instinctively, but there are ways to teach a child literacy & numeracy from an early age too.
Not only is it fun for your child to learn to do new things, it also helps to boost learning, visual and auditory pathways which are especially beneficial for helping children with a neurological issue.
The Glenn Doman reading program has been in action in homes since the 70s, and the results are pretty extraordinary. To begin a reading program, all that is necessary is to read the book “How To Teach Your Baby To Read” – by Glenn Doman & Janet Doman. This book shows just how easy and pleasurable it is to teach a young child to read by providing skills that are basic to academic success. It explains how to begin and expand the reading program, how to make and organize necessary materials, and how to more fully develop your child’s reading potential.
“By following the simple daily program in a relaxed and loving way, you will enable your child to experience the joy of learning–as have millions of children the world over. With How To Teach Your Baby To Read, you can give your baby a powerful advantage that will last a lifetime.” – Janet Doman

The boost to our son’s self esteem with each of the reading and maths systems is immeasurable, and is itself good enough reason to do the program – most especially for a child with some form of compromise. You can see Gryffin learning to do addition in part 3 of the Documentary on this website. (click here for the documentary)
