"The student's comprehension to reading passages has increased. We went over a story that was 3 pages long with 4 questions. He finished this within 30 minutes. Usually, it takes the whole hour reading and answering questions. He was able to focus and think clearly. He was able to pronounce most of the words. Some words were misspelled, but he was able to sound out a lot of them and write correctly. Soon, I should find out how his progress is in school."
"The student's father purchased a handful of Level 1 Readers for her. Today, we spent 40 minutes reading these new books. She is enthusiastic, focused, and very eager to become proficient in her reading skills. It is a joy to watch her begin to read!! We also spent time writing a Halloween story. The student wrote most of the story, with some assistance sounding out words. We also practiced Trick Words."
