Susan Barton loves hearing from parents about the impact Barton tutoring has had on their child, as this parent shared:
I could share this with a friend, but it would not mean as much to someone who does not have a dyslexic child.
My son is 13. He is dyslexic, and we used your program 4 times a week. When we started, he could not read at all. Not “cat,” not “at,” not “me.”
He could not rhyme or decode sounds.
He’s had three big milestones in the last month.
This year, for the first time, he tested in the normal range for reading at school.
I still read to him nearly every night because it’s our thing. And I’m going to keep it up until he tells me he’s done.
Last week, he was annoyed at the place I stopped. So he picked up the book and continued reading it to me out loud. Usually, he picks books to read that are well below his grade level. But this one is rated for grades 6-8, and he handled it with little trouble.
He had friends over today and they were playing a board game. He thought one of his friends was making up the rules, so he pulled out the rules and read them out loud to the group. HE READ SOMETHING OUT LOUD TO A GROUP. ON PURPOSE. And he understood what he was reading!
I have been concerned about him moving on to high school in a year and a half and having to read for comprehension.
But I’m not worried anymore.
