Parent Reviews of Easyread
Our most recent reviews:
We have finally finished!
She has improved with her reading in the last two months by 5 readers to reach a level 20 which is beyond our expectations and her spelling has improved in her writing but formal spelling test are still an issue. We will take a pause from easy read and see if she continues to improve.
I cant thank your team enough for all she has achieved.
I talked to Hudson about talking a break from easy read and he did not want to take a break. He said it had helped him more than any other program so that was great to hear from him, as I have been very quiet and just encouraging to him so that was the first time I have really talked to him about how he liked it and I was very pleased and excited to hear that he likes it and wants to keep going. He even asked if I would wake him up early this morning to do his reading.
All in all, it is a great struggle for Hudson but I am so proud for his willingness to keep going.
As always, thank you for all your help and understanding. We are hopeful to see some big changes in the coming months. Looking forward to our upcoming lesson
I can not thank Easyread enough just his confidence alone had been amazing and I have seen vast improvement with his fluency and accuracy especially in the last two weeks.
Shes going great! she actually picked up some readers I had from school and read them to me!! First time ever! and she said “I kind of like reading”!!!!!
QUESTION 1) In his free writing, are you seeing fewer spelling mistakes than you were before starting Easyread?
Yes. He still makes plenty of mistakes but there has been a very big improvement. I completely understand what he is trying to write when he does get it wrong too. His mistakes seem like perfectly reasonable mistakes, as I can see why he made them and the word does at least look like it should sound (or close to it). His spelling is definitely improving in his writing.
We have been really impressed with the improvements that Hugo has achieved with the Easyread program. He is now around the middle of the class at school with literacy, and he chooses to read books as a liesure activity. Unfortunately, the demands of school homework have increased this year, and we just can’t manage to commit the time to the program and still keep up with the school requirements, while maintaining a reasonable bedtime.
Thanks again for everything. I will continue to recommend the program to anyone who has a child with difficulty learning to read.
Thank you Sarah.
It was great talking this morning and having human interaction with a provider, rather then just computer based.
I am hopeful this will make a huge difference for Aliya.
I really have seen a huge improvement with her reading. She is now wanting to pick up chapter books and attempts to read them even when she finds it difficult. She loves the computer system as she gets to spend some mummy time where she gets constant praise. Thank you.
Her teachers have been amazed at the progress she has made in reading and in her writing and I was informed on Friday that her reading has been assessed and she is now proudly a ‘free’ reader… she has worked so hard and we are so proud of her and more importantly she is proud of herself!
Thank you so much this programme has been amazing and so well put together. It has helped Isla enjoy the love for reading and given her the confidence from reading a menu in a restaurant to snuggling down enjoying a good book before bed time!
Good morning! I would like to cancel our subscription. I realize we were just charged for another month, but I didn’t want to stop before Elise finished her book, “Grace’s House.” She finished it this morning and was so proud of herself. She has worked hard for the past year and with the help of Easyread, she has made some real progress. We especially liked the brief 15 minute sessions.This has been a valuable program for Elise and we are grateful for the gains she has made in her reading. Thank you.
I just had parent teacher conference and his teacher had his reading tests from when he started 2nd grade. He was at a kindergarten level. Right now he is almost to 3rd grade level. He was very excited to show me his progress because he knows how hard Tanner works at home on his reading.
I’m so glad we found Easyread! I looked at numerous other programs and even tried one in-person program, but none seem to measure up to what you offer. You have a wonderful product with lots of diverse and motivating activities for struggling readers and lots of support for the adults who guide them.
I just love the course, and love the education provided to parents and teachers on reasons for reading difficulties, strategies to overcome them, and training on how to use the course. I truly appreciate the customer service and encouragement you provide via message, phone, and video lessons. I never felt that we were left hanging without assistance, suggestions, answers. The code words are wonderfully motivating. The games are much better than I ever thought they would be when we started – even I wanted to play them! What a fun way to target skills and monitor progress. I like the tables and graphic progress tracking. for those of us with data brains, it really helps to be able to see results over time.
Thank you so much for sending through the helicopter, it is working fine and Alfie is really enjoying it.
I also wanted to thank you for our time on the system. It has been a great experience. Alfie is now reading really fluently, and most importantly, he has a system for working out the words, rather than just guessing. He is much keener to read and we are starting to build up his confidence to do that more autonomously.
The system itself is great, but equally we have valued the time from everyone who has supported us through the email and skype support. It has made the world of difference to me to actually be guided on how to help and support Alfie best and also the knowledge that someone is available to answer questions and address concerns has been invaluable.
So thank you very much for all your support and please pass on our thanks to the rest of the team too.
We wish you all the very best in the future.
My husband and I would like to sincerely thank all of you at Easyread from the bottom of our hearts. We are so impressed with the whole program and all of your tireless efforts to help struggling children to read. We couldn’t be more grateful to you for all the progress Axl has made over the last seven months. We have and will continue to promote the program to teachers and friends.
Thank you for all your help! Daniel’s reading has come on massively in the past 5 months, I’d be scared to think we could still be struggling like we were last year had we not taken on the EasyRead system!
We have definitely seen a lot of positive changes lately.
We got out of our routine of the lessons over Christmas, then we had a bit of disruption at home, and now Lacey is having a bit of a hard time getting back into it… But we are trying to persevere as we really do see the benefits.
Her spellings seem to have come on so much. We make a note of any words she hasn’t been able to read, she copies them three times in her handwriting book, and at the end of the week she checks to see which ones she remembers. This has been working really well, last week she remembered 9 of the 12 words, and all of them where pretty close to being correct – which I think is incredible considering she hadn’t even been able to read them a few days before.
I’ve also started to notice her reading things without being asked (leaflets, signs, my text messages!! haha), which she has never done before.
QUESTION 1) Is Jack now able to read short, easy words more accurately in his normal book reading than when we started?
Yes!! Jack is also now able to read bigger / longer words too, he is able to break them up and is showing more confidence each day
Just a quick note to tell you all there at Easy Read. . . THANK YOU! We went to the eye doctor for the first time in 14 months. Bishop’s eye tracking was on point for the first time in his life! The doctor asked what we have been doing because it was such a vast improvement. My husband and I put our money into Easy Read rather then vision therapy after long deliberation. The ROI for reading as well as eye tracking (not to mention a tool he would use rather then groan about) seemed to be there for us. Looking forward to the new resources.
Sarah, his reading is really beginning to take off, its fab to see. thank you so much Easyread !
She has progressed well with her school reading and her teachers have commented on her continued improvement. We’ve been impressed by her increasing ability to blend longer words by checking the different sounds that the same letter can make to check which one sounds right. She had her eye test this week too and that didn’t highlight any issues. She was very proud because it was the first time she did the grown up eye test saying the letters and words rather than the one with pictures she did last year – that shows how far she has come with confidence and recognition.
Sierra has been confidently reading chapter books every night for than last couple of weeks. So I think we’re ready to stop now. She is also wanting to do other reading.
For the first time, she is trying to decode words ourside of easy read. This is enormous progress, she just refused before and said she couldn’t do it.
Since starting EasyRead, William has managed to catch up with his peers in reading at school and has been where he should be in terms of attainment for the last few months. Reading used to be such a struggle for him, and now it far easier. Due to different reasons, William has not been able to do the lessons as frequently as we did them in the beginning but his reading has continued to improve. I would certainly recommend EasyRead for anyone with similar problems in reading.
