These last 48 lessons have made a tremendous improvement. When we first started easyread because Ambers teacher had expressed concern that she was loosing confidence at school. She is obviously bright and could see all the other kids able to read and she was not able to even sound out words.Although she is only 5, her teacher is pretty certain she is dyslexic or perhaps with ADHD (both of which run in our family)The most important thing for me is that she is happy and this was beginning to effect her confidence socially, which was perhaps the biggest concern for me. Her school have been hugely supportive and even have a big laminated printout of all the easyread characters for Amber to use in class when she gets a bit distracted.
I am so happy to say that, that after 48 easyread lessons, Amber is totally over this lack of confidence. She seems much happier and her friendships are stronger as well. I got her school report yesterday – here is what her teacher said about her reading and writing this term:
“Amber has made progress with her reading and phonics. She loves to write in the role play area and often chooses to do so freely in the class diary and writing book. The work she has been doing at home has made all the difference to her reading, giving her so much more confidence and a desire to give reading a go. It has been wonderful to see her blossom in this way.”
Thank you all so much and please feel free to use my testimonial wherever you like.
