“We purchased your software for our daughter who is currently in grade 3. Our daughter entered grade 3 reading at a grade 1.3 level. She had a thorough assessment that revealed a severe disability with respect to sound/symbol relationships and with respect to sound blends. Outside of this she is a very bright little girl.
“I write to thank you for the software. For our daughter your software is perfectly targeted to assist her. I confess that our daughter does not show much enthusiasm for using the software. This stems in large part from the fact that confronting ones limitations head-on is seldom fun.
“Our daughter is currently in lesson 32. In the past three months she has made the enormous leap from arduous reading with little to no comprehension (when decoding is so taxing there is little room for comprehension) to being able to pick up a book and read for pleasure. Our daughter has always loved books and we read to her regularly. She is not currently reading advanced books, however, she is able to currently read books that are appealing to children of her age. In recent testing her reading level has already risen to the mid-grade 3 level. Close inspection of her results show that she has greatly improved her “word attack” skills.
“Reading is still a chore for her, however, it is now a viable part of her life. We are grateful to you for your efforts to assist the reading disabled and we look forward to the continued benefits that she will receive from completion of the remaining lessons. We have recommended your software to another family with a reading disabled daughter. They have bought the software and are also very pleased. We have also forwarded your written material to a psychologist that will refer her clients to your web site.”
