He is fourteen now and finally reading and writing quite well. Bonnie, I want to thank you again for everything you have done to help us homeschooling parents.
I recommend your reading help system to all my friends, homeschooling or not. Thank you, thank you, thank you! Within weeks he was making progress. I find the word drills and therapy worksheets to be very relaxing. With the test taking lessons I have noticed an improvement with reading and noting each section that I read through.
The program has really helped me and I cant wait to get through the rest. No one knows more than I do the pain of being a slow reader, the pain of needing reading help. In fact, when I was in the 3rd grade I was in the Bluebirds reading group. And my reading group was the lowest group.
Everyone knew the Cardinals were the best readers in the class.
It was No Secret, even though no one had actually told me. With a lot of help from my mom and teacher, my reading improved, and I went on to college to become a learning disabilities specialist.
I went into this field because I knew the pain reading difficulties cause, and I knew that doing things differently could make a difference. My entire future was changed when I became a proficient reader. Years later, I had my own children. They were all bright; in fact, they tested to be gifted, but reading was hard for one of my kids.
He struggled with every reading assignment. That really frustrated me — being a specialist, spending my life helping kids to improve their own reading, and one of my sons had a hard time with it.
So I did more research, spent thousands of hours and thousands of dollars to find the answers to the reading help and writing help mystery. Through research and trial and error implementation, I was able to give my son and my students the reading help they needed.

My son would skip, miss, or repeat words as he read. This made him miss bits and pieces of the text while he read. I realized he had some of the same vision perception problems many of my students did.
I started pulling together all that I had learned and done with my students over the years and had my son do the same exercises and activities. Learning and homework time became so much easier for him! Reading and writing help turn into dyslexia program The best thing about developing these solutions is that they really made a difference.
My students started doing so well that they no longer needed reading help! When I first published my books, games, and guides I figured that was all I needed to do to help kids with dyslexia, learning disabilities, ADHD, or autism learn faster. But shortly after the materials were available, parents called and told me how they loved the products, but could I also give them a few more tips for using them.
I created video and audio lessons that were easy to follow, so parents could help their kids themselves and even get live support if they needed it.American English is a website for teachers and learners of English as a foreign language abroad.

Adding "Algorithms" to reading, writing, and arithmetic also helps with that goal. The rigor is not only inherent, but it is observable. You get your program . It’s no secret that everybody learns and absorbs information differently.
Our brains are all different and operate in unique ways, so why should we all try and use the same studying techniques? There are four main types of learners: visual, auditory, reading/writing and kinesthetic. No one type is better than the other and some people .
