Reading & Spelling Difficulties Resolved

Sarah was diagnosed with a Specific Learning Difficulty / Dyslexia by an Education Psychologist in March ‘22. We didn’t know where to turn for help. Luckily a neighbour recommended Rita and the Wordsworth Learning Programme. I was a bit dubious before we started as I didn’t really believe much improvement could be made – how wrong I was!! We started our journeys to Nenagh in May and from the initial assessment it was brilliant. Rita was able to pinpoint the exact areas where Sarah needed help and just as important the areas, she was strong in. We made the trip 8 times in total – listening to audiobooks the whole way. We worked hard in between our visits but Sarah could see the logic in the whole programme and the improvements were obvious straight away. I even learned so much about the English language!

The programme has been life changing, not only for Sarah but for our whole family. The results have been amazing. Her reading accuracy has gone from the 16th percentile to the 85th, her comprehension from the 32nd percentile to the 93rd. She still has work to do on her spelling but we now have the tools to do this on our own. It has taken the stress out of home and school life. Rita was a brilliant mentor and bonded so well with Sarah. The programme instilled a great work ethic in her and gave her back her confidence. She has developed a love of reading (and listening to audiobooks) and has a newly discovered flair for creative writing!
