We have seen a remarkable change in James in the past few months. His confidence is sky high and I am now content that I am actually helping him with the challenge of learning to read rather than getting frustrated and cross! He re-reads all the text until he is familiar with it. Without doubt he still tries to guess words but much less frequently and when prompted to decode them he can do it without difficulty. I know it will take time to lose the tendency to guess. We are very pleased with his progress so far. Roll on 6 months time when he may even be an independent reader!
