got D's scores from his middle school. In one year, D's basic
reading went from 4.5 to 6.1. His reading comprehension went
from 3.1 to 8.2 (over five year gain) and his composite score
went from 3.9 to 6.8. School staff was astonished. I attributed
it to your program. So it again demonstrates that RfS works,
as you knew. But it also demonstrates that a parent can effectively

Dorothy van den Honert's course as a dyslectic adult and was
helped very much by it. When my seven year old daughter turned
out to be dyslectic, I had her tutored with RfS/EL for six
months. She made the honor roll in middle school in public
school and is now in a demanding private school. She is still
on the honor roll.

he was seven years old. His reading score, after 16 weeks
of RfS/EL went from 1.7 accuracy, 1.0 comprehension, to 4.3,
accuracy, 2.3 comprehension. At the end of a full year of
tutoring, his scores were 6.2 accuracy, and 3.4 comprehension.

year old son was seriously depressed with his "failure" to
read in school. He was tutored for a year with the RfS/EL
program. His scores, which were 2.7 accuracy, and 2.6 comprehension
when he started, leaped to 7.4 in accuracy and 7.1 in comprehension.
He was recently tested, at age 13, by a psychologist, and
he was found to be reading a college level.
