Silke Hamilton, OTR/L, ATP, SWC
When everybody else told me to give up and just accept my son's inability to function, Silke was a bright light of hope. She continuously helped us find ways to improve his cognitive function and social skills. She made me realize that there is always an option, it's a matter of finding the answer. She did regular OT and Therapeutic Listening with him which really helped his handwriting and coordination. Her patience, persistence and mostly her personal support were an integral part of my son's healing. I am so glad we found her!
The Dyslexic Advantage Unlocking the Hidden Potential of the Dyslexic Brain
I love this book because it focuses on the positive aspects of dyslexia. Since the diagnosis can so often be disheartening, it is wonderful to read that the different way of seeing the world provides somebody with dyslexia an advantage over those who do not have this perspective. I believe so many of our unique inventions and ideas come from these gifted individuals, and I think it's great somebody wrote a book championing their abilities!

Read Naturally
My son's school provided this program for him as a means to increase his reading fluency. He complained a lot about it, and his reading instruction time became his least favorite part of school. About 3 months into the program I took him to a behavioral optometrist and found out he has visual processing issues. He hated this program because it was physically difficult for him to do it, and the program itself does not improve the visual challenges he has.

If you choose to do this program, make sure your child does not have a visual issue that is causing reading fluency problems. This program will be a huge strain for everybody if the child has to struggle through it.

Fast ForWord
My son has auditory processing and attention issues and he was 2 years behind in his reading, and it was suggested to us that this program would help with both. We went to a local provider and he set up us so we could do the program on our computer at home. Although I have heard some children love this program, my son found it tedious and really struggled with it. Over an hour a day, and lots of fighting with my son, and we managed to limp through 3 months of it. At that point we had seen no progress in reading, attention or auditory processing abilities. Clearly this was the wrong program for our son, so we stopped. I would research case studies carefully to make sure your child is a match for what this program does. We wasted countless hours and $2300 to get nothing from it.

Easyread System
My son is a strong visual learner and from Kindergarten to 3rd grade we tried many methods to help him learn to read. Traditional phonics and rule-based methods like Wilson seemed completely confusing to him. We even used some kinesthetic methods thinking he needed to be more engaged in the sounds, but that failed too. Then we found Easyread, and it really lived up to its name! Not only was it super for easy for him, but his progress was phenomenal. He was 3 years behind in reading, and in only 7 months he caught up to grade level. Thank you, Easyread!
