We are just in awe…

Tonight Ben had a big pop in fluency and we are soooo grateful. After his lesson he wanted to do some more so I used the trainer text where I input a sentence and we had a blast with it. He read every sentence with minimal errors. There were big words in there and we are just in awe. Thank you so much for what you do. I look forward to seeing how he progresses.

It has made a MASSIVE difference…

We have been EasyRead-ing for 16 months and it has made a MASSIVE difference to Merry’s reading and confidence. It has been fun and particularly having non-fiction books available at a level that Merry can access has been so helpful.

I have mentioned EasyRead to Merry’s school too, in the hope that they might look into it for other children at the school.

We are now reading books so EasyRead has definitely done its job!

Thank you again.

I cannot believe how effective this program has been.

She is really enjoying reading now and doing so well – even reading chapter books on her own. I cannot believe how effective this program has been. I’m so very happy and so is she. We aren’t always able to remember to do the lesson each day, but even with some irregularity, it’s been really impressive to see this program working!

Thank you.

He is now AT GRADE LEVEL!!!

Good morning Easy Read.

I want to thank you for the amazing program you’ve created with Easy Read. Sebastian had his 2nd grade reading assessment and is he is now AT GRADE LEVEL!!! We’ve been encouraged by his teacher to move on to fictional books and other reading material that interests Sebastian, which is exactly what he wants to do anyways. So, I’d like to take a break from Easy Read, see how he does. If I notice his reading not improving or regressing, I intend to resume Easy Read. (sorta hoping that isn’t the case though). Please let me know. Thanks again!!!!

He is officially reading (and performing overall) on grade level!

We wanted to share an update with you regarding Eli’s progress. He took the Reading, Math, and Language MAP tests a few weeks ago for school. He made major improvements on all three compared to last year, and is officially reading (and performing overall) on grade level!

Reading was actually his highest score, which was a wonderful boost for him :).

We’re very proud of the progress he’s made, and his teachers are as well. Since he’s reading on grade level, his special education teacher recently moved him back to the regular class for reading small groups (and spends their 1:1 time working on fluency and reading speed). That made him feel great as well, since he didn’t like being pulled out from the regular class.

Eli really enjoys reading now, and takes the initiative to read independently at home. He’s currently reading The Jedi Academy series, and it’s wonderful to see him reading for fun!Regarding the dual language immersion program, Mandarin is still very challenging for Eli. It’s more accessible now, though, since it’s easier for him to read the pinyin. We believe he’ll make good progress this year.Thank you for such an excellent program, and for your dedication to your students’ success!

Big win!

I wanted to share that his new teacher at school has noticed an improvement in David’s reading behaviours from last year. Big win! In our sessions I also see him trying to find the correct sound instead of random guesses. Most noticeable to me is when words such as “What, When, Where, Were,…” he works his way through the whole word instead of tossing out the first W word that comes to mind.I know we have a long way to go for reading to come easily for David, but I think one of our biggest hurdles has been conquered: his belief in himself that he can work his way through decoding the words properly! I see him trying to decode words in every day tasks, too, when even a couple of months ago, he would just say “I can’t read, you know” and not try.

I can see Brycen’s confidence growing…

Thank you for your message and for the encouragement. I can see Brycen’s confidence growing. We’ve been at it about 2 months now and I can already see him reading and decoding better than he ever has before. I’m really looking forward to seeing him continue to grow and build on this.Thank y’all for what you do! I really believe it’s going to make a tremendous difference for him.

We did this program 10 years ago…

I cannot recommend this program highly enough. My son was deemed to be struggling with reading at school at 6/7yrs old. (in fact he just wasn’t the 2 yrs ahead that the prep school measured the boys at). After the 7 month program, he went on to read all the Harry Potter books in a month. His confidence grew beyond measure and his studies have just flourished since. He will be sitting his A Levels next year – we followed this 10yrs ago. The structure of the course was easy to sustain even for working parents as you must support your child. The rewards were off the scale and were so relevant to my son’s interests. He kept motivated throughout. Thank you David and Easyread!

No one would ever guess that she has ever struggled with dyslexia…

Hello! Our daughter, Lily was in the EasyRead program over a year ago. She continues to benefit from the program. She is a member of the GirlScouts and recently earned her Bronze Award. Part of earning the award is to give a short presentation on her project. She decided that she wanted to have notes to read from for her zoom presentation. In the past, reading in front of people has caused her to feel self-conscious. But she spent two days practicing her presentation and she did so well! She was articulate and clear and no one would ever guess that she has ever struggled with dyslexia. If you don’t mind, please share this with your team and, especially, David Morgan.We continue to be so proud of Lily’s efforts and were particularly so watching her present and earn her Bronze Award. We continue to remain so grateful for your excellent program.And today we were playing with her spy kit containing the prizes she earned through the program and laughing and celebrating the completion of her hard work.Eternal thanks from our family to everyone at EasyRead. We hope that you all are remaining healthy and well.Warmly,

FINALLY – after a year of struggling…

TODAY I went to our public library and picked up a few simple books for Giuliana. She hasn’t read anything on her own – ever. When I broug them home, I gave them to her and told her these are books she could probably read on her own now. She read FOUR OF THEM IN A ROW. She decoded nearly every word on her own and was so proud of herself. I cried with happiness. FINALLY – after a year of struggling to just memorize sight words through the traditional education system, we had a breakthrough. It is all due to your program. I was so skeptical at first. But this program WORKS. My daughter who hated reading, cried about reading – she read 4 small books today. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for creating something so valuable and helpful. We are going to keep going a few more weeks for sure but thought you’d like to know our success today. Thank you again.

We already see improvements in his confidence and performance…

Eli started third grade virtually last week. Although we’re still working on his reading speed and fluency, he is able to read grade level books. We already see improvements in his confidence and performance compared to last year as well. Thank you all again for the time and effort you put into this program, and for the encouragement and support you provide to students and families! It’s been a wonderful experience.

From struggling to fluently reading…

The biggest success for us in regard to Easyread is that Anaru has enjoyed it. The games have been a huge part of this, but also the trainer text characters are engaging and interesting, and funny. This made a big difference for Anaru, as instead of struggling and slogging through tedious abstract letter symbols that he found trying, he had funny characters that made it easy and fun. If Anaru hadn’t like the course, we wouldn’t have bothered to continue with it, but he was engaged from the very beginning, and that was fantastic. Added to that, Anaru has progressed rapidly from struggling to being a fluent reader within the space of the progam. So, in just over 6 months he has moved from struggling to fluently reading – this is amazing, and just what we hoped for. He is reading at level for his age, and spelling really well, and I can see that in the next 6 months he will only improve even more rapidly, as his ability to sound out even large and challenging words means he’s now happy to tackle any text.
We are so happy with the course, and feel it was worth every dollar, because his confidence and happiness in his reading is invaluable.
Thanks so much to David for such a fabulous course, and I would recommend it to anyone.
Thanks again!!!

I celebrate this as a huge hurdle that has been overcome!

We are very happy with the progress he has made this far and the increase in his willingness to read and enjoy it. For the first time he just completed a whole chpter bok and we have now bought him the whole series. I celebrate this as a huge hurdle that has been overcome. The continuing journey moving forward is no longer so daunting so thank you

He picked up a book on his own accord…

Just last week he picked up a book, Wings of Fire, and read several pages. He needed help on some words, but did an excellent job. We did not prompt him to do this. He picked up the book on his own accord (out of the blue) and started reading aloud. It is a book well above his reading level. Upon finishing he said: “I used to be a poor reader.” I was thrilled!

His life has changed for ever by learning to read…

Just to let you know that this time last year Hayden started Easyread at the age of 13 with a reading age of 7. During lockdown he has been reading before bed every night voluntarily and recently completed reading an entire book – something I never imagined he would achieve independently. His life has changed for ever by learning to read and Easyread was the only success we had in almost 10 years of trying to get him reading, both at home and in school. I can’t thank you enough.

Hooray for Easyread – our lockdown saviour!

I was so pleased with her today.  Big high fives when she whizzed through it all.  I also videoed her reading tonight as she has really improved and has so much more confidence and enjoyment when reading.  Thank you so so much!  She’ll be very excited when I show her your email tomorrow.  Hooray for Easyread – our lockdown saviour!

Daisy came to me and said she wanted to read to me!

Hi, just wanted to share something positive that happened today. Daisy came to me and said she wanted to read to me! She read a substantial amount of a book which has small text (with only a little help). Also when doing her lesson today she voluntarily chose to reduce the text size. Hurray, feel like things are moving forward. Thank you!

I was looking for a learn-to-read program…

I was looking for a learn-to-read program that was engaging for my son, as I had tried several other programs that had just missed the mark. Many of the reviews I read prior to signing up were more relevant to correct reading challenges (and yes, I can see why the program would be great for that). I was looking for one for beginner readers for my 5 year old who hadn’t yet started school. The Easyread program was fantastic – it gave a fun structure, that has got him reading at a level I certainly wasn’t anticipating, and also gave me a way to assist with more complex words when we are reading books in our own time. We have done over 120 lessons now, and my son enjoys the games involved still (which is amazing in itself!). I also appreciated the parent training and awareness of what to look out for, and how to address issues seen. I do recommend this program to other parents – it was great for my young one whose attention is not easily held. – J.

We are on lesson 72 and Owen has improved by leaps and bounds!

We are on lesson 72 and Owen has improved by leaps and bounds! I think we are ready to stop even though we are not quite to 90. He is still 6 years old and he can now read 6 levels higher than he was when we started. He is at the correct level for grade 2 he will enter in the fall.

I just wanted to feed back from the eye tracking exercise…

I just wanted to feed back from the eye tracking exercise. It has made a huge difference, so quickly, Saf is now confidently picking up chapter books and choosing to spend time reading, rather than me insisting on him doing it. I can’t believe that something so simple can make such a huge difference. I took a video of the first time I did it and have seen the improvement, his eyes are now able to move smoothly from side to side rather than jumping around and loosing focus.

This program has helped her reading tremendously…

This program has helped her reading tremendously, and I am already recommending it to several people who have struggling readers, including teachers.She is no longer intimidated by long words, she sounds words out like she never did before, and she tries multiple options of sounds when she is figuring the words out. Her reading speed is much faster with improved comprehension. I am so grateful for your program. She will now enter 3rd grade being almost at grade level reading with her peers. She gained 2 full grades of reading skills in 10 months on your program.

He can ‘feel’ the difference Easyread is making already…

I had a conversation with Tristan today about Easyread to gauge how he was feeling about it. In these 17 days he has never said he didn’t want to do it, in fact he has suggested to me or his dad that he wants to do the lesson for the day. THIS IS GREAT NEWS!

We have just gone back to school after two weeks holiday. Tristan started the Easyread programme during the holidays.

Tristan said that he found reading in class easier. He felt more confident and didn’t seem to hesitate so much.

This is great news as he has always been hesitant to read in class.

Thought I’d let you know about this. It sounds like he can ‘feel’ the difference Easyread is making already.
