Read To Achieve helped my son Jesse progress from pre-reading level to Grade 4, over about 2 years, using the FastForword program. This was done at a distance. Kathy was very patient and encouraging, whenever Jesse had problems or gave up. She gave me lots of advice on how to motivate him to continue and progress. We are very grateful for her support and wish to recommend the FastForword series for any child with reading difficulties.Jesse's English teacher noticed the rapid improvement in his reading ability and confidence level.
"We could not be happier with the progress made by our children since they started at Read to Achieve LLC.The children have developed core reading skills and what's more look forward to each session. Read to Achieve LLC has provided a nurturing,safe environment in which they feel accepted and comfortable. they are always treated with dignity and respect and have improved self-images as well as greatly improved reading skills."
"Ms Hays has a deep breath of knowledge of both the FastforWord software package and how to implement it on each individual case. In my experience the most important aspect was that she understood my concerns as a parent of a special needs child, and deeply cared about the results. Ms Hays is patient, flexible and understanding. She knows when the child has had enough for a session and when to keep pushing. We are eternally greatful to have had her in our son's life!"
I want to thank you for all your patience and guidance helping Ethan through the Fast ForWord program. I am so grateful that we found you. You have made such a big difference in all our lives. I know Ethan will get where he needs to be with reading but the biggest difference to me is being able to have a meaninful conversation with my child. He is so much more present with us and aware of what is going on around him. I expect that we will see more changes as he continues with the program.
