After a stroke that took my memories of everything including how to read and write, I was able to teach myself to read after a lot of help and my determination. It took close to a year. I went from 12th grade to pre-kindergarten.
My daughter homeschools her children and I was one of them. She put me in the same program her children were in.
I made it as far as 3rd grade but couldn’t pass. Through listening to people read and Googling definitions with the pronunciation has helped tremendously.
Now I started reading children’s books on YouTube because it helps me and hope it can help children and adults that love hearing children’s stories.
I’m reading this story. Here’s where you can find it:
