My son had been diagnosed with Dysgraphia. He was having trouble getting his wonderful ideas on to paper.
We returned to Kathryn to undertake the Writing Persuasively program.
This program gave him the tools needed to organise his ideas and formulate a writing plan.
It resulted in him being able to express his ideas more easily and in a timely manner.
Thanks again Kathryn.

My daughter had not been performing at her spelling year level since leaving pre-primary, her dad and I had lost the confidence that she would ever be able to spell correctly for her age. After the 10 week cracking the ABC code with Kathryn, my daughter is now not only spelling at a year above her age group, she is also more confident in other school activities. Thank you Kathryn for assisting us with he programme but for also giving our daughter a much needed confidence boost.

My son was struggling with his reading and falling behind in class. He is a clever boy with a great vocabulary but just couldn’t seem to grasp reading.
We began Cracking the ABC Code with Kathryn and both she and the program were amazing!
His reading has improved in leaps and bounds and along with it his confidence has soared.
He now enjoys reading!
I highly recommend it.

My son was just a little behind with his literacy in year 3. After a friend recommended the Cracking the ABC Code program we have been thrilled with the results. My son improved his reading by one year level and spelling and comprehension skills by two year levels after the 12 week program. Thanks Kathryn!

Cracking the ABC program is brilliant. It's intense and you need to make time to do the homework but it totally works! The best thing about the program is the 12 week companion booklet, that follows the same dependable sequence each week. It's so well laid out that even our 13 year old son could conduct the home tutoring.
Kathryn is fun and gentle but she is also very insightful and we learnt so much about our sons learning style and his needs that none of his teachers at school had picked up.
I am not normally in favour of homework but this became a family bonding experience.
Before the program we were booked in to have our son assessed for Dyslexia and reading glasses. Thank goodness we lucked upon Kathryn and this program.
We are now all great allies in our sons learning and in 12 weeks my son went from not understanding the basics to being above his age group and proudly pointing out all the spelling rules when we are reading together.
If you want your child to read and understand spelling this intensely thorough program is the only way!
Thank you Kathryn. Life is so much easier when you can read 🙂
