After her daughter’s dyslexia diagnosis in 4th grade, Elize recalled hearing about Edublox on the radio and went for training to help her. Marie-Louise passed 12th grade with four distinctions, passed her BA degree in Social Work with good marks, and is pursuing her MA degree in Social Work. Elize shares her family’s journey.
Daughter diagnosed with dyslexia
When my youngest daughter (now 25 years old) was in 4th grade, I realized her reading was not on par. The school said I should not worry. However, we took Marie-Louise to a psychologist, who determined she had dyslexia.
The psychologist recommended that Marie-Louise attend a specialist school 150 miles from home. At the time, we resided in a small town, and since 1st grade, our children stayed in a boarding school 30 miles from home. Therefore, we did not want to send Marie-Louise 150 miles away from home.
Elize finds dyslexia solution with Edublox
I then remembered hearing about Edublox on a radio station and got in touch. Marie-Louise and I went to stay near an Edublox clinic for two weeks, and I learned how to utilize the system.
After that, we worked with the blocks EVERY weekend and on holidays, two and sometimes more hours a day. When Marie-Louise reached 7th grade, she got satiated, and we discontinued the system.
Edublox dyslexia program had a lasting effect
Marie-Louise passed 12th grade with four distinctions, passed her BA degree in Social Work with good marks, and is pursuing her MA degree in Social Work (Play Therapy).
At one stage, I felt her reading was so poor she would not even get through 7th grade! I was over the moon when she read her first Harry Potter book, and she has never stopped reading since.
Improving her own mind
I’m 60 now and am very worried about my mind. I was so grateful when I heard about Edublox Online Tutor because now I can help myself on the computer.
I’ve been doing this for a long time, and I am really enjoying it.
