Shannon Bruck shares her son’s success.
In regards to Edublox, we love it! I truly do feel this program is an answer to prayer. We are using it with our 7 year old son, Benjamin. Benjamin is a very smart, energetic, compassionate little boy. However, when it came to school work, especially reading and writing, he was having trouble focusing, staying on task, and recalling what he had just learned. I was at the end of my rope before Edublox. Almost every day of schooling included tears from him and/or me. I was, unfortunately, accusing him of “not trying” or “being disobedient.”
After reading the book, I determined that Benjamin is mildly dyslexic. The descriptions in the book regarding this suited Benjamin to a tee (letter reversals, adding letters that weren’t there, saying and writing words differently, etc.). Finally, I had some direction. We ordered the complete kit and it arrived within 2 days! We were off and running within a week.
We have been doing it now for about a month and I can already see major improvements! Even his Sunday school teachers at our parish have noticed an improvement in his ability to write with little assistance. His self-confidence is up and he actually likes reading now! He used to “hate” it, and often said that he didn’t understand why he needed to learn to read. We are using the dyslexic program outlined in the book for 30 mins. a day, 5 times a week. I must admit that on the days when we, for various reasons, are unable to get to it, the next day suffers. I don’t fully understand why Edublox is making such a difference, but it REALLY is. We are now enjoying our schooling time together and Benjamin is actually able to complete some of his other work independently. This was impossible before. All I can say is thank you, thank you, thank you. As I said before, I really believe this is an answer to prayer.
