Reading Ready Brains
Rewiring Dyslexic Brains
EY ICRWY Project: EDSLiP
Early Dyslexia Screening & Literacy Intervention Project
Why are we so passionate about early dyslexia screening and intervention to get brains 'reading-ready'?
A Message from Rory's Mum. (ICRWY Pilot 2020)
When our eldest son was in Grade 3 he was diagnosed with dyslexia. Unfortunately by then, the damage was done, his reading age was assessed as being below the age of six (he was 8.5 at the time). The most heartbreaking part of his journey was the devastating effect it had on his self-esteem.
The psychologist at the time introduced me to the Speech Sound Pics SSP approach, which turned out to be life-changing! Under Miss Emma's guidance, we cleared the slate and started his journey again at home after school. He warmed very quickly to the approach and in just five weeks he had increased six reading levels. I am extremely proud to announce that he is now in Grade 6 and reading at grade level!!
In fact, he is doing so well that in his LP meeting recently I was questioned whether he even had a learning disability.
This brings us to Rory, our youngest. From a young age, he showed signs of possessing the same strengths and weaknesses as his older brother. Not willing to sit back and watch him suffer the same fate we jumped at the chance to be part of the ICRWY pilot, he was two months shy of his fifth birthday at the time.
Now at six he is doing so well, this video is proof of that. This is Rory reading his home reader to me. So proud and so very grateful for Miss Emma and SSP ICRWY
