From constant struggle to continual success...

Lyn can remember how when her son was at nursery, he was observed as being one of the most promising children in his class. Indeed, Andrew was progressing incredibly well in all areas and staff often commented on how bright he was. Then, he went to school....

From age 5 onwards Andrew's difficulties with his reading were woefully apparent. All Lyn could do was to hope that the school would guide him home.

But by the end of the next year, Andrew had not reached any of the required target levels. During Year 1 (Kindergarten) his reading and writing skills were almost non-existent and so by Year 2 (1st Grade), Lyn decided to question the school about his reading and writing abilities, to which the Teacher replied: "well Andrew struggles with everything, doesn't he?"

Lyn promptly took Andrew out of the school and opted for a year of homeschooling. They hired a tutor who assured Lyn that her son was very bright and would catch up. He didn't.
