Andrea Stephenson was a full time working mom who figured her son would learn the alphabet by 3 or 4 years. However, she was able to accelerate that process by utilizing fun and playful in-depth learning methods. Her son spoke in full sentences by 18 months, starting spelling and reading at 21 months, could write the alphabet and numbers by 27 months, and do multiplication by 36 months.
Now she wants to show parents that all children are capable of doing this in a natural, playful, environment without flashcards. So, she created an online coarse called “Teach your toddler to read through play” In this course, she reveals how her son was able to read at a 3rd-grade level at 3 years old. She shows the books they read, the toys they played with, videos they watched and danced too.
Andrea has also written two books titled Teach your toddler to read through play and Fun and easy ways to teach your toddler how to write. Each book contains over 130 activities tips, and resources to expose your child to reading and writing in a fun way. Both books are available on Amazon.
