This page features a sample of the hundreds of comments received from the many individuals who have completed programs, and from their parents and teachers.
Madeleine Z, homeschooling parent of 10-year-old, California - from NATHHAN Homeschoolers Association
We completed the Davis Symbol Mastery List in six months and the changes in my son were phenomenal. Ted’s reading level jumped more than two years and he is now working at grade level in all areas ( showing great strength in science and math). He can also, for the first time, remain focused for long periods of time.
Adult, age 34, Hawaii - from Alternative Learning Solutions
I feel less fearful and more confident. For the first time I felt as if I had conquered the words, that I was in control. My eye ticks almost disappeared. I openly laughed for the first time in a long time and my sleep has improved dramatically. By also doing the Math program, I passed my logic (Math) class – wrote an A on the final, from a D.
Paul, New Zealand - from Optimum Learning
I am an IT consultant who works in the software testing aspect of IT; I have built myself a very successful career over about 15 or so years; I have always struggled with reading and writing; although have a great mind for solution and big picture views. I have just completed your amazing course. For the first time ever in my life I have become excited about reading (I’m nearly 40 years old!) My handwriting has changed so dramatically my wife did not believe it was mine!
Dave, New Zealand - from Wellington Learning Solutions
I could hardly read at all before I started the programme. For the first time, I finished a book without getting frustrated or angry. I pinched a book from primary school because I wanted to read it and now over 30 years later I can read it. I am more mellow now and starting to be me again. I’ve found myself! This course works – better than anything else I’ve tried.
Bob Lee, Headmaster and Parent, British Columbia - from Positive Dyslexia
All the things they say should happen after the program, have happened. It’s made a huge difference in his reading and writing. As a parent I can endorse it 100 percent. I don’t work with dyslexic kids myself, but I’ve never seen anything like this program.
Parent, Georgia, US - from Reading Quest
We did the program and what a difference. Lexi is a different child. Lexi not only is reading at her grade level, but she understands what she is reading. If she doesn’t understand something she knows what questions to ask.
Weijia, graduate student, age 33, New Jersey - from New Perspectives in Learning
Before doing this program, I would get distracted easily and not finish my work. I am relieved to find out I am dyslexic, and glad I have my new tools. I wish I would’ve done this program sooner, so I didn’t have to struggle for so long.
Jessica, Year 10 Student, Australia - from Melody Hong Kong
Before I was introduced to this program, reading had always been a troublesome task. My mind always seemed to be filled with ideas as I read. I understood the words, but just not how to connect them. With the techniques learnt from the program, I was able to concentrate fully as I read. I was amazed by how much joy you can have with a book in front of you.
