Sonlight's program yields success when tutors, classes, and hundred-dollar programs fail!
February 12, 2004
Dear Sonlight Curriculum,
My son, a sixth grader, has struggled with reading from the start. That had a ripple effect. It meant he couldn't keep up in any of his subjects--math, science, history, anything. He would come home wondering if he was "stupid."
In every other way, he is a bright, motivated, and hard-working child, but after years of not being able to keep up in reading, his confidence was shot and he was afraid even to try.
I was desperate. I tried everything: thousands of dollars of products, tutors, special classes.... Nothing helped.
Six months ago I got the Sonlight® Remedial Reading Program. During the ensuing months, I have seen his confidence rise with each story he completed in I Can Read It. And that allowed him to try reading things he would have totally ignored before. A few days ago, I found him reading a difficult instruction manual! (I had to look twice to make sure I hadn't mistaken him for his older brother!)
But here's why I'm writing. Yesterday, his reading specialist (a 30-year professional) called me: "I don't know what he is doing in this remedial reading class. He should be in a regular class."
Needless to say, after struggling with this issue for six years, these words brought tears of joy and prayers of praise. I can't tell you how grateful I am for learning about these tools. I wish I had found them years ago!
