Light at the end of the tunnel

When you are going through the long process of tutoring, it can be hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel. So I wanted to share this message that was posted on a Facebook page for parents of children with dyslexia. This parent gave me permission to share her post.

A message of hope for all struggling students and parents:

My daughter was 3 years behind in reading in 3rd grade.

At the beginning of 4th grade, testing showed she was only reading at the 4th percentile.

So we found a tutor, and over the next 3 years, my daughter went through the Barton Reading & Spelling System at her pace, and she learned to read.

The Barton System claims to be able to bring dyslexic children up to a 9th-grade reading level, and boy, did it deliver.

I just received my daughters results from the high school placement test where she scored … drum roll please … 95th percentile. That means she scored higher than 95 percent her peers.

She has gone from hating to read to reading a book a week. It has been quite an amazing transformation.

Thank you Susan Barton, my wonderful Barton tutor, and my amazing hard-working daughter who never gives up. Tears of joy flow freely.
