Our daughter Annika was struggling with reading, writing and maths. Returning to school in 2022 we realised how far behind Annika had slipped. She was just able to read basic books like Billy B Brown which she tried very hard to read, but struggled to comprehend, as she would loose the thread of the story due to the constant decoding needed to read the words/letters. Her spelling was even more of a struggle.
We started the Alison Lawson program in April 2022 and seen improvement firstly in her reading and decoding. The program also teaches them the times tables and after about 3months Annie learnt 1-12 times tables. Something that gave her great confidence in class as she was one of only a few that had learnt them. Her spelling is also improving.
The program has a holistic approach and Maria needs to be commended for her style of teaching and flexible attitude, we also did some extra sessions of tutoring when the program had finished which help Annika to catch up in general.
Annika is now onto reading Wolf Girl chapter books, and most importantly able to comprehend and enjoy what she is reading.
I highly recommend this program, I found it more effective than other programs I have previously done with our son. I only wish we had found Maria and the program earlier.
