3V1772.02 The result of isolation (11/29/82)

3V177303 At the Center (11/30/82)

Barbara Porter came yesterday with five kids (one mine) to the Center. Peggy brought Wendy with her and acted very friendly with her. Barbara brought sons Gregoire and Laurant and Gregoire’s friend Alden. The kids, of course, played differently. The three boys were aggressive and Laurant (older by a couple years that the 5’s understood what was happening. The others competed for the chance to muddle through the experience..

After showing Wendy her DRAW procedure on TI, at my suggestion, Peggy stepped back to let the others play. She drew on some computer paper. Wendy and Gregoire also did so eventually…..

We talked, among other things, about Peggy at school…. Barbara proposing we parents both come for an “observation — where we would go into the kitchen and peer out at the kids through a one way mirror. Then discuss whatever situation with the teacher, Los. Barbara also proposed Peggy should invite friends over to our house in the afternoon to play.


3V1774.04 Reading to Me (11/30/82)

Peggy read, i.e. interpreted the stories of, Richard Scary’s Funniest Story Book Ever. Two incidents stand out: first shows lack of cross-page & top-bottom order of story interpretation; second, the role of inferable cause in inducing such order. In the story about “Absent Minded Mr. Rabbit,” Peg did not notice the ordering of clothes removal on the second page. In her version, after getting stuck, Mr. Rabbit was squirted, jammed, pulled by a truck, then poked by a pole, (from the bottom to the top, no notice of which came first). On the contrary, in “Sergeant Murphy and the Banana Thief,” she first pointed out incidents sans order then (on p. 4) after first pointing out how bananas gorilla flipped the table in the air (at the bottom ) she then pointed out that he slipped on a banana peel in a picture above (this must be a memory from being read to).
