An Olympic Thanks from a Mom

An Olympic Thanks from a Mom

My son has struggled with reading since the very beginning. Fortunately for us we got a diagnosis of dyslexia very early in 2nd grade. However even the terrific reading support at school wasn’t enough to close the gap. I knew that if we did not make forward motion in 4th and 5th grade, middle school would be a disaster.

I am so grateful that his reading teacher suggested Lindamood-Bell. He attended intensive sessions for 3 hours a day, 5 days a week, for the second half of his 4th grade year.

As a single mom, this was not an easy decision to make, but I knew if I did not invest in his education now, there might be no college education in the future. He worked hard and he often got “tired” but we stayed the course and the clinicians worked to find ways to keep him coming back and staying focused.

He increased his reading by two grade levels but the real prize came at the start of 5th grade. He came home from school with a chapter book and read for 90 minutes! He was actually ENJOYING reading. This was a huge step forward. Olympic athletes train for hours a day to be proficient in their sport. My son needed Olympic level daily work on reading to become a proficient reader. THANK YOU to all our “coaches” at Lindamood-Bell!
