I was so excited yesterday to see on someone else's blog that Terry Brown, guru and creator of So Happy To Learn, participated in a podcast on Yvonne Pierre's weblog the other day. If you missed my previous posts on the subject of reading, Terry Brown was totally instrumental in Samantha learning to read. She's an amazing woman, an amazing teacher, and an amazing advocate for people with Down syndrome, and I feel very fortunate to have learned so much from her.
The podcast runs for about an hour, and is totally, totally worth listening to all the way through. Terry not only discusses teaching reading to people with Down syndrome, but also writing and math.
