I recently received the following heartening report from a parent which I wanted to share with you.
"From the time he entered kindergarten, our son, Jack, was struggling. In reading, he guessed at words by looking at the first one or two letters and in writing, his scrawls were undecipherable. We were baffled.
Testing told us that his verbal and non-verbal skills were extremely high but he was trailing behind his piers in both reading and writing. This combined with a diagnosis of ADD, we began to investigate private schools for children with learning disabilities. During a visit with Jackâ€™s psychiatrist, Dr. Jonathan Slater, we were advised that the best thing we could do for our son was to jump-start his reading and writing skills.
He told us about Dr. Blankâ€™s Phonics Plus Five program. He said, "Trust me. You must try Dr. Blankâ€™s program. If you stick with it, Jack will not only catch up with his first grade classmates, but he should be ahead of his class by the end of first grade."
