3V1066.01 Reading letters: new development (12/23/80)
Peggy often gives evidence of not distinguishing words from letters.
(See especially her play with letters in the past videotaped sessions).
Consequently, it was quite surprising today to hear Peggy saying letter
names as she poked around in Scurry’s food bag. My best appreciation
was that she pointed at random letters and recited names — with
neither order nor correspondence — much as she initially counted.
NB. Gretchen, in the kitchen at the time, called this to my attention.
this is a new development.
