Feedback from our participants

I discussed goals with the students and their parents, ensured children had 2 times during each day where they worked on their goals one-on-one or in a small group. After celebrating the meeting of the goal, the student was motivated to reach his next goal.

My target student has gone up 6 reading levels because of the specific reading goals aligned to him.

I have been reminded of the importance of daily practice, set routines and keeping tasks simple, to reduce confusions and possible distractions. The course has given me greater insight into reading difficulties and more able to inform parents about their child's reading development.
