Easyread has been the only system that Joe has responded to. By the end of his reception year he was totally demoralised, desparate to learn to read and could not grasp any aspect of reading. He knew some of the basic phoenics. He is now reading via the charcters and is able to read very basic words in his school books. His confidence has returned but he does find it hard work.
He loves the games and the characters. We are both strugling on some of the sounds but otherwise Joe is able to sound out the words and with small words blend them together.
The support has been good both via the phone and messages. Through them I feel confident in helping Joe through the course despite his difficulties.
