This system is different. Yes, you do need a few minutes of peace a day, but even I can do that. There is no huge barrier to overcome - it starts with the letters of the alphabet and moves on not step by step but as it says toe by toe.
After three weeks on the system my son gained nearly six months in reading age and better still he looked forward to doing his exercises each day. I showed him the end of the book and explained that reading that was where we were going to get to - together, toe-by-toe. He wantes to make it and he can see that he can do it - little by little. Now we are two months in - we haven't reassessed his reading age but he read a whole page of Harry Potter to himself recently, just like his friends do. Nine weeks ago he couldn't read the word 'dam' or 'set'. He seems six inches taller almost!
This has a lot to do with the fact that the book also implicitly boosts self confidence - there are no huge gaps to fill, and the exercises are each only minutely more advanced than the previous one so there is a good deal of familiar territory mixed in with the new things.
I simply have no criticisms for this book. As far as I am concerned this book is IT for dyslexia. Buy it and use it!
This went on for years.
One day, about the age of ten (! yes, I had to check it, too, but we signed the book and dated it, so it must be right), she came home so pleased with herself. "We learned lots of new words today". So I asked "What were they?" Answer - "Elephant, Underground, Umbrella". "Hey that's really good. Show me". So she did, and she could read all the look and say cards for that day. Which would have been the end of it, except one of them was upside down. That seemed a bit too good to me. So I changed some more around. She could read all of them them upside down and sideways. At this, I became very suspicious. She could even read the three long words in a mirror. Well, I can only read upside down because of long experience negotiating across a desk with colleagues, and I can't do mirrors much myself, so that was really strange.
So I wrote down "Ground" and asked her to read it. Complete blank. OK. How about "ground" (small 'g'). Still blank. How about "Under" Still blank. So I said to my wife "This doesn't make sense" and we went through it all from the beginning. She could read "mat" (with great difficulty) and "cat" and "dog" with ease but "The cat sat on the mat" took minutes to puzzle out. "Janet and John" was simply impossible for her.Read more ›
Then I ordered toe by toe and it is the best thing that I have ever done for my son! It is realy simple for me and my son to follow and after just 3 months he is reading words like 'flakes' and 'children'. Best of all he is happy.
