Can’t Read – Oct. 11, 2013

Erin had both speech therapy and physical therapy this afternoon for the first time in 4 weeks. She had had to cancel 2 weeks ago. She said that in speech therapy she was able to recite the months of the year in order which she had not been able to do earlier.

On the way home she sobbed that she can’t read as well as 9-year-old Paco. So, it is frustrating for her. At home she showed me one of her favoroite novels, Henry James’ Portrait of a Lady which she attempted to read.  No wonder she couldn’t. It was very fine print. But, I think it is more than just the size of the print. She can read bill boards, but even trying to read more than one sentence of an email is very difficult for her.

At Kaiser we got our flu shots. She came home very tired and tried to sleep for awhile before Cindy picked her up to take her back to Davis, but she was unable to.
