The thoughts of a parent ...
Our main aim on sending our son Charlie (aged 8) on the Dyslexia Programme was for Charlie to become more confident in who he is. Charlie, whilst finding academia hard, has dyslexia mildly with his main struggle being getting information out on paper. In the general routines of life Charlie found school stressful, remembering his kit and general organisation all being part of this. He is a 'home' boy and would take every opportunity to come home early rather than stay on at school, even when it was fun activities with his friends. He never wanted to do sleepovers and would always choose to be at home.
Whilst every child is growing up and moving on, the last 2/3 months since Charlie has completed the programme we have seen an accelerating pace of change. I feel that Charlie's confidence has grown a lot, he has now done his first sleepover and has loved it, and wants to stay on longer at school to do the fun activities. His handwriting has a marked improvement in style and consistency and his reading has definitely come a lot easier with Charlie now tackling much harder books.
More importantly I feel Charlie has blossomed this term in his confidence and his ablity. I feel he is less frustrated and happier. Every child is different and one would never claim that any programme would change a child's personality nor should one wish it, but for a child to be able to fulfil his potential as much as he can, must be the aim of every parent.
My writing's improved. I'm now writing quicker, it's easier to read, I can write what I really want to say. I can get homework finished now, so it's more enjoyable. I like school better now.
