Ryan’s reading has improved noticeably. In May his reading age was 7 years and 2 months, 20 months behind his actual age. I have just reassessed him for his end of year assessment and his reading age is now 8 years and 7 months, 9 months behind his actual age. So in 6 months he has caught up by 11 months.

He is not sounding out every word as the more familiar ones – the, in, as, at, he recognizes even in picture format only. But I try to make sure he sounds out the others. Now when he is confronted with a word he doesn’t know he will attack it by sounding out first rather than just giving up like he used to.
