I just want to compliment you on a factual, well-organized site. I wish something like this had been available
in 1995, when my daughter's dyslexia was first diagnosed! I wouldn't have flailed around so much.--L.D.
I was thrilled when I came upon your site. This is the most comprehensive information I have found on the internet
for reading problems.--N.S.
Thank you so much. I will take your advice and make her an appointment tomorrow. --J.K.
After visiting your site, I am very excited! This is a wonderful resource! I ’m glad I found you! I will be a frequent visitor. Thank you. --B.B.
The reading is going great. Both of us really enjoy reading books from her school required reading selection. I owe you a huge thank you. Your knowledge is very much appreciated and needed. Keep up the good work.--S.G.
I love this site. A lot of the questions are things we have gone through or are going through now. It is great to read answers that are exactly what we did to overcome or deal with each situation. Thanks! --J.W.
Just surfed on your site. I plan to make it a regular place to visit. --M.C.
Thank you so much. Coincidentally, I called a therapist this morning to arrange for an initial evaluation. Thank you again for the gift of your time and thoughts. --M.W.
Thank you for your site so much. It has helped me and informed me from the other end of this world! --J.B.
I will continue to check your website and also, I’m going to call our local public school as you suggested.
I know they have a speech program, I just didn’t know that children who don’t attend the school yet may be offered
service.So it’s a start and I can’t thank you enough. --D.Q.
Great site! This is the first time I have seen specific questions answered. For instance, the was/saw reversal. No one has ever given me information to help my son [practice correctly]. --S.W.
This is an excellent site. I found it very informative and helpful. --A.L.
This is a wonderful piece of insight. I am very impressed. Thank you; I will keep looking for a local person [to do this evaluation]. --J.A.
I would like to thank you very much for your efforts to provide this knowledge. --S.M.
Thank you for your thoughtful answer to my question. I appreciate your insight and reminder to us that she is communicating--however unpleasant that may be at times that we need to listen. Again thank you so much for your response. --W.C.
We did contact [the University where the evaluation was performed] as you suggested. Your suggestions for his IEP were good. Thanks again. --A.M.B.
Thank you. Your website was very helpful. --M.C.
Excellent site. It has been of great help to me as a trainee teacher. Well done. --P.R.
Thank you very much for your information. It was a great help.--C.G.
Thanks! I loved browsing through your site. I would like to use your analogy of the carpenters using all tools to build a house for a research paper. Thanks. --D.M.
As a Ph.D. in special education, I am impressed with the comprehensive nature of your website. I plan to refer my university students to your site as an example of how to successfully integrate theory and practice.
As the Executive Director of a SC nonprofit, STRIDES, that addresses these problems in a tutorial setting, I will recommend your site to our parents.
As a parent of a child who struggles with these issues on a daily basis as an adult, I appreciate your compassion and willingness to look at learners individually.--G.E.
Ruth, a great website. I am referring it to my undergrads and grads in my courses.--D.F.
Thank you for sharing your website with us. I encourage all reading/language teachers to visit it. One of the clearest, informative sites I have seen on teaching a child to read. --I.S.
I visited your Web site and Oh my! Excellent, well done and very useful. --R.B.
You are amazing to share all of your hard work; your collection is fantastic and so helpful. I feel a little guilty printing out all of your exercises and not giving you something in return. I’ll try to think of something. --C.E.
What a wonderful concept! Your [question/answer section] appears to be a valuable resource for parents and professionals. It was a pleasure surfing your site. --I.L.K
I was impressed with the amount and depth of the information you presented. And your point of view! I will add it to my “favorites” and come back. I’ll forward it to a couple of colleagues as well. --L.S.
I LOVED all your information on reading! I frequently work with students needing help in this area. I would like permission to link your website to my website. --L.K.
This is a very nice site and would be a great resource for parents. I shall try to remember to lead them here. Good job. --J.K.
Way back I asked a question on your web site about my step-grandson’s speech problem and you were on target. Your web pages are a wonderful speech/reading resource for both parents and teachers. --M.BK
From one SLP to another, thank you for your time in clearly educating us about the differences between phonemic awareness and phonics. You gave such clear, simple to understand information. Thanks for sharing it with all! I am going to implement it into treatment and share your website with all my parents!--C.H.
I came across your site this morning as I was searching for drill materials re: rapid naming. It’s truly wonderful. Your concrete explanations and examples are excellent. I am currently working to set up early identification and intervention for high risk readers at our school with the goal of expanding district-wide. I will be speaking to district kindergarten teachers. I would very much like to use your “tree” analogy and especially your explanation for “reversals.” --C.C.
I am a trainer for a non-profit organization that trains teachers primarily in districts with a high number of at-risk students. We’re holding our first conferencewhere I will be presenting a workshop on Phonemic Awareness activities and games. I really like the way you’ve written your block tracking instructions. I’m emailing to ask for permission to copy and distribute your block tracking instructions as part of my workshop. Thank you for your time and efforts.-K.B.
