Hanson Reading Testimonials
"We received some great news yesterday. . . Christopher scored "higher than 99% of sophomores" on the Critical Reading portion of the PSAT. Not bad for someone who read at the "0" percentile when he was 6 years old. You should stand up and take a bow because if it hadn't been for you, this never could have happened. When you took on the project of turning a dyslexic into a reader, you changed Christopher's life. He went from being a child who begged me every day to let him stay home from school to a child who loved school and read voraciously. I still remember walking through the airport and having to caution him that if he didn't look up from his book he was going to crash into someone/something.
Christopher (and his parents) will be forever grateful to you."
Andrew spent this past year in a highly rated public kindergarten, struggling with learning to read. He hated reading and fought whenever we tried to practice at home. Since attending Hanson Reading, we have noticed immediate improvement in his ability to read after just a few sessions, but more importantly, we have seen a dramatic improvement in his attitude towards reading and a big boost in his self-confidence.
In one one-hour lesson my son could actually read words. He didn’t know how to read any of them before. He already knew the names of the letters of the alphabet and knew the sounds of most letters before the lesson, but he couldn’t read. Now he is more motivated than ever, but I want him to be part of a Hanson Reading group as my friend’s children have been attending. They like the camaraderie, taking turns playing the role of “the teacher”, and the games they play that makes learning to read even more fun.
"I have four children. Each is different in how the learn-but they are all perfectionists. Our fourth is even more of a perfectionist and can’t take correction well, so my ears were open when I heard the rave reviews from friends whose children had taken Hanson Reading classes. I was ready to accept any help and less contention for our busy household. I didn’t realize that learning to read could be so easy and pleasant. Not only is there a simple way for my son to figure our words using the CODE, that even I can understand. He loves to show off to me AND I don’t have to dash his enthusiasm by telling him that this word and that word doesn’t work. He is excited about reading and WANTS to read."
