I did not think we would ever be able to tell a b from d. Finally we recently got there! This works, keep it up!”-Josie
We started the program last week, and this is the first paragraph our 9y/o daughter has written…. ever. The first time she’s written on notebook paper and stayed in the lines. The first time she’s written and not had to go back and correct letter reversals! Excited at the progress. The best part is the boost her confidence has received. Thank you, Dianne Craft!
Today I am thankful for Dianne Craft. Before I heard of her, my little boy Jason could hardly read anything, struggled in school, couldn’t remember sight words and sounded everything out. A year later he is reading fluently and making tremendous progress. Thank God for the right brain strategies, the Right Brain Phonics Book, the Biology of Behavior CD set, I could go on and on. They work!
Our family loves you! After meeting with you and doing everything you recommended our son beat the dyslexia and dysgraphia beast and graduated with a 4.0 GPA.
We started this program in September. Last night I caught my son in bed past bed time WITH A FLASHLIGHT READING A BOOK!!! He has never been an independent reader before and would have done anything to avoid reading. Thank you!
So today is Monday… They are always hard for us…. The school day started out rough but ended sooo Great!!!! As many of you know S has a lot of dyslexic issues…. We have finished all the brain training, still working on Right Brain Phonics. October 2015 we started the program and she struggled to read Preprimer words….. Today she took the reading placement test and she read on 2nd grade level!! She has went up 4 levels in 15 months!!! PRAISE JESUS!!! As I am typing this she is writing her pin pal with very little help!!! Folks this is God at work!!
I really appreciate all that Dianne Craft has done for our family! Quick response to my emails and phone calls when it looked hopeless her and her staff gave me so much support. Thank you!! PRAISE JESUS for getting us over the hump! We still have a hill to climb but it doesn’t feel as steep
Thank you thank you thank you!! In just 6 weeks we are seeing such a change in many areas for our boys!! I can’t wait to see what change is like in 6 months!
I remember sitting in the bathroom, fighting back tears. Why couldn’t I teach this obviously bright child how to read? Why couldn’t he write? Was it me? Was it our curriculum? I think we were on our third or fourth phonics curriculum and nothing seemed to work. I didn’t know if he’d ever learn.
Some people thought he’d do better if I gave up and put him in school, but my brother had been so hurt by ignorant teachers I just couldn’t do that. They didn’t understand that some children are twice exceptional – gifted AND struggling learners. They thought he was just goofing off.
I knew our boy would have the same problem.
At the same time, everyone was saying, “Don’t let them label him!” I didn’t realize that no one had to see his test results but us – unless we needed them to! I didn’t realize that a diagnosis might give us a direction to find help, either.
When he was ten or so, we heard Dianne Craft speak at a conference. I was amazed. Finally, someone who understood about kids who “were working too hard to learn!” We ordered the materials she recommended and got to work.
It was pretty awful at first. He hated doing the exercises. He thought it was “baby stuff,” and threw a fit every day for a while. Now he stands at our booth (when he’s with us) and tells parents, “Don’t listen to their complaining. This stuff changed my life.”It really did. That was the year he learned to read fluently. Later those materials helped him learn to write. Now away at school, he’s a senior whose college just endorsed him for the Rhodes Scholarship for graduate school. What? Yeah, God is good!
Anyway, I thought I ought to tell you our story as the school year is getting started and you might be thinking just what I did back then, “I don’t know if I can do this.”
Having a struggling learner is one of the hardest things I faced in homeschooling. Dianne Craft’s materials helped us get through it.

I am giddy with excitement at the potential we have unlocked using Right Brain Multiplication Cards by Dianne Craft, Child Diagnostics, Inc. Repetition wasn’t working and frustration levels were high when working on this math skill. Thankful to God for leading me to this answer! God is in the small things, too!!!
“We have had HUGE success with our 9 yr old. Trouble with math, writing reversals, writing was all over the page. Could not remember spelling words at all…we have a long way to go but she has been flourishing! I learned a whole new approach to teach spelling/math-I will forever be grateful to Diane craft for her program.” – Jacquie C
