Last year after completing 81 hours of intensive reading-comprehension re-learning via Lindamood-Bell’s visualizing and verbalizing program, I promised myself the reward of an e-reader if I finished The Lions of Al-Rassan.
I’d begun reading that big book during the application weeks of the visualizing and verbalizing program, but I had to finish it on my own. After only two weeks of reading it under the guidance of their instructors, Lindamood-Bell Australia launched me into the final phase of restoring my reading after brain injury had ruined it 18 years earlier: practice.
Yeah, practice is the adult version of elementary school homework. But unlike when I was a kid who Pac-Manned through reading materials from books to cereal boxes, I found practice difficult. Hence the reward.
But I didn’t reward myself.
My parents did for Christmas today.
Great way to celebrate 7 books read!
