I wanted to comment quickly on Joshua’s progress. This does seem too good to be true, but Josh seems to be doing much better when reading. He’s not done by any means (currently on lesson 70 – Ed), but he has more confidence and is excited about reading. He finishing small books in minutes that would have taken 5 times as long to finish, not to mention many tears and much frustration.
I am trying to stay cautiously optimistic, because we’re in this fight with Joshua for the long haul. I don’t want to let my guard down, but it seems like this program (and more importantly, what it’s taught me about having patience, building confidence, discouraging guessing, and not over studying) is going to succeed.
Thanks for all you do and please continue to stay diligent and keep us on track to achieving the reading success for Joshua in the most efficient and lasting way possible.
