Ask questions in the ICRWY group if in this phase. This was a video I did for a parent who said her child just wasn't 'getting it'.
A week later...
'Thought I should report back. After not getting it for months, we followed your advice. It took her 4 days to be able to blend, and another 4 to be able to segment (although this is still a work in progress). Roughly 10 minutes twice a day. I'm blown away and she's so happy.
