Hi, I have met the dad, he is a chiropractor. And I have heard about how well his son can read. I am pretty sure the program he uses is

http://yourbabycanread.com.au/

If you don't hear back from him I can check with a friend and confirm.

I also posted a similar question on another board wanting to get advice from a parent of an older kids who reads especially well and have copied the response below. The most important note is that our kids learn to read very very easily with direct imput (site reading) and I believe it is an excellent precurser for speech.

I feel bad posting since I never sent off videos to copy for those that wanted to see what Love and Learning was and 'Baby babbles' but that is purely because I am totally crap at getting to the post office and sending things. I just NEVER get there organised with the stuff I need with me!

So, I suggest Amarli's mum or Aden's mum hassle me by PM in the next couple of days to make sure I send next week (I actually took the DVD with me to the christmas get together last year and forget to give it to you then which shows just how hopeless I am .

Embarassed

What this little boy does is not unusual for our kids but his parents have no doubt put in lots and lots of time with him. I actually think it would be beneficial to get them on this board - I only met him once but believe he does a lot of research and would have loads of info to share.

ANyway, copy of the other email below (dads name is victor, sons name is emmanuel).


--------------------------------------
From Victor -

Again, my mantra, it depends how old the child is. But lets assume the baby is under 3 years of age - which is the only thing I can talk about.
First, it is not a particular method that is best, but rather it is our toddlers with DS that make any visual-based sight-reading program look good.
The way we (read: Gloria) did it, is more adept for homeschoolers: that is role your own, make your own flashcards, etc., but in my talks across the USA on this topic of early literacy, most parents opt for the ready-made program, instead of going to Wal-Mart and buying index cards and a thick red magic maker and then laminate said flash cards.

So, to get started, I would suggest that the interested parties peruse:

Love and Learning, see:
http://www.loveandlearning.com

Your baby can read, see:
http://www.yourbabycanread.com/

and a 17 month old child with DS who used these videos and books:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c8hJaxrOsIQ

For those interested, the primary source of all this is Doman's book, "Teach your baby to read," which was published over
http://www.amazon.com/Teach-Your-Baby-Gentle-Revolution/dp/0895295970

Now that Emmanuel is giving his Power Point presentation, I no longer actively speak on this topic.
What Gloria was referring to was, early on, introduce 5 new flash cards, but your mileage may vary. When Emmanuel was almost 4, we were doing the 1000 most common words in English and he was averaging 30 new sight-words per day.

Also, since this is NADS, there are some very good ready-made laminated flash cards, that can be procured from Dr. Elizabeth Severino, who lives in the Chicago suburbs: e-mail: liz@frankiesfund.com, who I copy.

Just looked up the yourbabycanread website and seen that the slide flashcards are almost identical to the one's that mum picked up for me for Blake about 2 weeks ago from Aldi of all places!! They were $8 per pack.
