I was a late reader, and gifted. Obviously I am dyslexic, but I also have a lazy eye.
One of my first recomendations would be to distract her from focusing on learning to read right now. Get her wordless books, such as Floatsam
, or puzzle and maze books. For books with words, ones where the words are individually isolated are easier than sentences and paragraphs, such as Richard Scary books
. Make sure she has other ways to feed her interest in gathering knowledge, such as watching NOVA videos.
To a fair degree with me the things that the Drs recommended to help my eyes made reading more difficult. I prefer to use one of my eyes for close up work and the other for distance work. One of my eyes was just much better at reading, but had trouble seeing distances. The problem was it is believed that using both eyes for both reading and looking at far away object is better, so there was a huge push to prevent me from doing things that made reading easier like covering one eye with my hand while I read.
To this day, one of my eyes is my reading eye and the other is my distance eye. I sort of use both in the middle distance. Personally, it works fine. I really don't see what the big deal about depth perception is, the only time it's a problem is if I'm trying to hit a baseball with a bat (so I joined the fencing team in HS instead of the soft ball team, no biggy.) You can usually judge how far away something is from perspective.
