Parent Reviews of Easyread
Our most recent reviews:
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. 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, 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.
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.
We are thrilled 🙂 Emma is free reading much more confidently, with greater speed and with a lot more enthusiasm.For the first time since she was really young she is reading for pleasure without parental hints.
Thank you so much. We love Easyread;the decoding and the games. It’s so well thought out, with the right level of challenge and with so much support given onscreen to Emma and to me as parent here.
Thanks again, this has been a game changer :)!
We feel Oliver has made huge progress over the last few months and he is now ready to move on.
We wanted to thank you for all the help and support you have offered Oliver and myself throughout this process and you have really made a difference to Oliver’s confidence, not to mention helping with his eye tracking and strength issues.
Thank you so much for this program. We now feel our son is ready to move on. He loved the program and it really helped him. His teachers are saying he is now on level. I want to move more towards him reading chapter books instead of online stuff. Having said that, please cancel our membership.
Landon’s reading has significantly improved. It’s much more fluid and consistent. He doesn’t stutter over the words or seem to be guessing anymore. It really is amazing to listen to him!
I just wanted to thank you and commend you for the amazing program you have created and also the excellent prizes you award the children.
Oliver was so excited to receive his secret agent spy glasses and even more so knowing that they came from the country that the ‘real’ James Bond lives. This prize has given him an extra feeling of motivation and he has just completed Lesson 20 which feels like a milestone (for him and me!).
I am so grateful to have discovered the Easy Read program and the support you offer your participants. Ollie is now counting down to the next prize to arrive in our letterbox and his confidence and ability is growing every day.
Thank you so much,
We are delighted with Easyread.
Things that I really liked about Easyread:
1) No claims that “Your child will be reading in one week!” Nobody should really believe those and I like that you stuck to your guns from the beginning about it being a process.
2) Focusing on the positive. Aeryn really wanted to learn how to read and was struggling no matter how much effort she put forth and it was very frustrating for me too. Focusing on positive feedback every step of the way made her much more willing to keep at it when it was hard and I liked the fact that I was her cheerleader instead of her enemy.
3) The Reading Difficulties training program. I took the whole thing and it was a better reading training than any training I had as I taught in public schools. Speaking of which, it said I could get a certificate when I completed it, but I couldn’t figure out how. Is that still possible?
4) The tailoring and assistance built into the program.
Aeryn said that she’s tickled that she can read now.
I just wanted to share Oscars progress. Oscar loves to read the tree house story books by Andy Lee, and I caught him decoding for the first time ever the other night!!! I was so happy for him and proud of him.
Thank you, I really feel that the program is working well and we are going to see great results. Oscar is loving the games, especially fighter pilot.
We also received the first two rewards in the mail last week and yesterday. He thought the glasses were so cool!
thank you, thank you, thank you!!
We have been VERY happy with Georges progress with the Easyread programme. Over the lockdown in NZ it was the perfect tool to help with his confidence and phonic awareness.
Yes, Angus seems to be doing really well…. in fact, i feel like magic is happening…. He really is starting to read quite well, even difficult words.
Yes, he has made huge improvements. His school reading assessment in February was level 4, his teacher assessed him last week, his reading level jumped to 12. Thanks so much to your system for this.
She’s doing great! We love the program but it being summer and how well she’s doing for her age level we feel like she’s ok to move on. We can’t really afford it any longer so I’m glad it worked out as well as it has. She doesn’t get frustrated reading anymore which is wonderful, and I’ve studied her charts and I can see the improvements in every area.
Your program is great and I have recommended it on FB. Thank you again for everything. We went from struggling to exceeding expectations and her attitude towards reading is so great now. We will continue to read everyday and have the easyread characters to help her if she needs help.
This course has helped Jack so much not only with his reading but also his concentration and confidence. He is always extremely proud of himself and how much he has achieved. The code word prizes are a bonus and kept him really engaged at the start when it was still very hard for him. He has gone from not being able to read or grasp the phonics approach taught in school to reading fluently. He went up to top reading group in his class from bottom in 3 just months! We are extremely pleased with the course and want to thank you for all your help throughout.
Elsa has made amazing progress and is well and truly at the level of her classmates and in the past 2 months has jumped from level 1 reading in class to level 6. We have a good idea now of her ongoing weak areas and what we need to keep working on (eye tracking mostly). Thank you so much for the support etc – we’ve found the program fantastic, and will definitely come back to it if we come across issues as Elsa gets older or if our 2 children to follow need any support.
I just thought I’d share some news with you, as we seem to have turned a corner \0/
This past weekend, Tristin was writing for his own pleasure, a sight I haven’t seen since kindergarten scribbles, and it absolutely made my heart sing! He was even ‘taking notes’ as he watched television. Our house is covered in post-it notes at the moment, with messages and notes from Tristin everywhere 😀
I attribute this to his new confidence in phonics and reading skills gained through your programme. As we drove around town, he tried to read shop names, road names…he tries to read anything he comes across now, out of his own desire.
Also, he finally received all of his prizes at once this weekend, he was delighted. He told his dad that ‘they (the easyread team) must really think that he is a spy’ 😀
Easy Read has been a fantastic educational system, our son Josh has for years battled to get going with his reading. Since taking part in the Easy read program he has not only improved but is reading independently and loving it. This would not have been possible without your program.
As parents be are thrilled that Easy Read, flipped the switch and managed via your well thought out program to build those valuable connections via decoding and building pathways, Josh is soaring and loves reading.
It feels bitter sweet to let you know that he will finish up next week when his current month is over as we are thrilled that he has reached this level but sad to say goodbye. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, your system and your team have been brilliant and the reading journey with you all has be amazing.
We are having fantastic success with the program. I couldn’t be happier. Every night, when my wife prepares dinner we do easy read. Recently we missed our first day after 30 or so lessons, and Alex asked the next morning, “why didn’t we do easy read?”
You and your people are truly changing the world, at least for my son.
Alex recently confided in me that his hope when he returns to school is to not have to go for ‘ special reading group ‘ …and I really think that is going to happen.
From my wife, Alex and I,
Maximus has made amazing progress in his reading. He literally could not read at all when he started and now he is reading signs all around him, subtitles on tv and books. I am very happy with his progress.
Today for the first time, he read a four paragraph passage about penguins, ostriches and kiwis almost entirely independently. I cannot believe it! I recorded it. When we started he didn’t even have 25 “sight words” consistently.
Thank you soooo much!
What we love: from the outset the books have been interesting – not just ponies and the standard school stuff! Merry loves non fiction in particular so the books on inventions, animals and the ocean have fascinated both him and us. It’s great for Merry to be able to access these as it is harder to find printed books of this nature which are at his level but engage his thirst for information.
We really like the characters and the rhythms that make them. Merry’s 4 year old sister is interested in them and wants to know when she can start Easyread so we talk through the characters with her.
The Easyread team have always been helpful in helping to resolve any concerns.
I have found the training for parents fascinating in understanding the differences in how the brain works and the effect on learning to read.
We have enjoyed Easyread and seen such progress as we would barely have believed at the start. Seeing Merry sit and read to his sister is like beautiful music. He is finally finding the joy of reading, rather than just the hard slog. We are very grateful indeed to the Easyread team.
My mum hadn’t heard her read for a while and noticed a great change not only with blending but also in her confidence in wanting to read. I know it is early days a long way to go but I have a happy girl who I can see growing in every aspect of school work. Quite amazing!
In early September at school Sebastian scored a reading age of six years and four months. When they tested him again in February he had reached eight years and two months, which was his exact age at the time. The teachers told us (they usually don\’t mention these tests, and do them informally) as they were so impressed. So we\’re very happy with everything, especially as Sebastian has so much more confidence regarding his reading now. That is even more important than his reading age. 🙂
