    I don't remember how old I was, but I remember that I actually learned how to somewhat read before anyone found it. My parents tried to do this thing where they would put subtitles on all of the shows I watched. Now imagine an associative synesthete with a highly associative memory watching the TV with subtitles. I understood almost every word spoken after about the 5th or 6th episodes (from matching the sound bytes to the word), but everyone still thought that I didn't know how to read until about 2-3 years later or something of the sort.

    I learned to read probably in first grade, so about six.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    I'm not sure exactly but I know it was prior to kindergarten so maybe 4.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    I don't know. I could read simple words in preschool but I didn't start reading full sentences until kindergarten.

    Yes it can. @nicolita you're a SLP, right? My oldest has dyslexia and had to be taught phonemic awareness thru LiPS...slow and painstaking. Reading still isn't easy or fluid for him. My daughter had similar problems but from auditory processing disorder so she had a lot of trouble with sound/symbol relationships. She finally got it. Next son has problem as well so it is a familial thing...too early to see how things will turn out for him. The last one doesn't seem to have any issues and is picking up reading by sitting in with his older brother.

    I can't remember when I learned to read. Maybe 5 or 6? I remember it being difficult and the it finally "clicking".

    I was taught to read by "sounding it out" too. I learned the alphabet, then learned which sounds were made with each letter, then learned phonemes (the sounds 'th', 'ph', 'ei', etc. make), and eventually I could read without having to think about sounding things out. To be honest I don't remember a time when I didn't know how to read English. If I had to hazard a guess I would say I was close to having finished or had already finished the "sounding things out" stage by the time I started kindergarten; I was four years old.

    I do remember learning how to read French though. The French alphabet is the same as the English one so I can't remember a time when I didn't know it, but I remember the "sounding things out" stage of reading in French when I was 5-6 years old. By the time I was 7-8 I had passed that stage and had begun reading for the sake of understanding what I was reading.


    I remember learning how to write more than I remember learning how to read. I knew how to spell but I couldn't write very legibly until I was well into elementary school. (Some people would argue I still don't write legibly...)

    Yep I'm an SLP. Have any of your kids ever worked with one? Dyslexia normally doesn't qualify for speech/language services without a phonological impairment. I've never treated dyslexia specifically, just kind of brought written language into therapy tasks to help reinforce the sound/symbol correspondence. It's awesome that you got them what they needed though. I see too many students who are in high school and have dyslexia and have just been passed through with no intervention. I can't imagine trying to pass a high school social studies class without the ability to read.
    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    3 to begin with, but learning to read is a process that took a few years. I was good by kindergarten.

    Between 3 and 4, and I'm still inexplicably proud of it.

    Well my mom read me a tons of books when I was a kid, she loves books and to read and so she motivated me to learn quickly...I remember I was the first one at school who could read, and I was 5 when I learned that. The funny thing is that I was so quick in learning reading, talking, new words etc... but I was heavily behind other's my age in writting, drawing, and math.
