What People Are Saying...
My daughter has just started working with Reading Allowed. She loves her tutor Ms.Katie and is using the tools she gives her to help her sound out and read words. I see a growing confidence in her each time she finishes her tutoring session. When I used to mention reading, my daughter would cry, but now she is excited to learn more. I am forever grateful for this program!
Working with Reading Allowed has really helped my struggling reader feel more confident in his skills. We have worked with many tutors in the past, but working with a Wilson Certified instructor really makes all the difference. My son is learning not just how to read, but also how to decode, encode and comprehend what he is reading. My son never picked up a book on his own because it was such a struggle. Now he is beginning to see books in a more positive light.
For the past year my nine year old granddaughter has worked with Reading Allowed. Public school professionals and tutors had been trying to provide remediation, but she continued to fall further behind as her self confidence dwindled. Angela's expertise in Wilson reading instruction along with her gentle manner and patience has been invaluable. Most significantly, my granddaughter now enjoys reading and has recently shared that it is her favorite subject. Our family is grateful to Angela for helping our third grader strengthen her reading and improve her self-esteem.
My daughter has struggled with reading for the past 5 years. We tried everything, from reading tutors to online programs. Nothing worked until we met Teacher Jeannie from Reading Allowed. Engaging Reading Allowed has been the greatest decision for me as a parent. After just four months, I watched my daughter transform into a confident reader. . If anyone is thinking about trying this program, I can assure you it will be worth every penny. This program has been such a blessing to our family.
After receiving reading assistance through our school district for two years, our daughter still couldn’t put the components of reading together. I contacted Angela, founder of Reading Allowed To say that what happened next was transformational for us and our daughter would not be an overstatement. Within 9 months, our daughter’s reading level moved up two grades and she is now a capable, confident reader. It’s as though our daughter had been in a darkened room trying to put the puzzle pieces of reading together and Jeannie came in and turned on the light.
Angela is one of the most impactful teachers we have ever encountered! She has not only put our family at ease about the ability of our son to develop reading and spelling skills despite his dyslexia, but she has helped him thrive! Angela’s interactions with our son are always patient, persistent, and kind. Her teaching approach has tremendously increased our son's abilities and we could not be more pleased.
Thanks to his tutor Ms. Katie, Simon has made huge progress in reading.. He even significantly improved his math score last semester because he is now able to read the math assignments by himself (before this program he just skipped all text assignments ) And Simon no longer complains or expresses negative emotions about reading. I even caught him choosing to read a science magazine last week! I know his reading will continue to improve.. Thank you for the program!
I can honestly say that Reading Allowed, our tutor, and the Wilson program has changed our lives. It was very frustrating and frightening to see my smart and curious 2nd grader rapidly lose interest in school and hate the subjects he loved when the assignments became more reading-based. His confidence as a student plummeted, and he just wasn't "getting it." We didn't know how to help him, and am so grateful for the expertise that Reading Allowed offered in assessing and identifying what my son needed to thrive as a reader. Now I am always thrilled to catch him with a book under the covers and love to see him get joy from reading.
We can’t thank Reading Allowed enough for all you have done for our daughter – we know that she would be a very different child (perhaps with significant emotional issues) if you had not worked with her. We are forever grateful for you, your expertise, your passion and empathy.You are, quite literally, doing lifesaving work.
