This is a question I get asked all the time by parents wondering whether to invest time and money into purchasing Easyread for their child.

And it’s an excellent question. We often hear about programs that worked while the child was on it, but then progress started backsliding after the child finished it. That can be devastating for the whole family.

Very few of our Easyreaders ever come back to us needing more help. When I say “very few”, I mean that I hear from 1 or 2 people a year, out of thousands. And we make it clear that we want to hear of any difficulties.

But why listen to me babble on about it when you can hear it straight from the source? Here is a little message a former Easyread parent sent me today out of the blue.

“I wanted to tell you about Daisy who is one of your Easyread graduates. Before we started Easyread Daisy was an unconfident reader who’s achievement in reading was significantly lower than her other academic levels. She is now several years on from the Easyread programme and is flourishing. She is 8 and in year three at school, however she now has a reading age of 11, her levels for Numeracy, Literacy, and Science are all at a year 5-6 level which is 2-3 years above her actual school year. She has been placed on the gifted and talented register for several subject areas. We feel without the Easyread programme Daisy would not of achieved her potential and the girl who used to believe she was stupid now has self confidence in her abilities. Thank you easy read without you our little bookworm will never of emerged out of her shell.”

Go Daisy!
