Some amazing news that had me chocked up and tears filled my eyes, yesterday after we finished reading for 10 min my son asked if he could continue to read, never has that happened- I think he is beginning to enjoy reading!! Thank you Dianne for your phonics program and “boring little books” that really do work!
This quote “If ‘Plan A’ didn’t work, the alphabet has 25 more letters. Stay cool” reminds me of something Dianne Craft says when she is teaching on Right Brain techniques. If “Plan A” (which is Left Brain curriculum) isn’t working, then try Plan B (Right Brain stuff)! Let me tell you, we are loving Plan B when A doesn’t work! It’s FANTASTIC! What joy there is in knowing ways to help your kids learn no matter what their style or Brain Dominance is! It’s opened up the world of learning at our house, and we are so thankful and having so much more fun! Thank you Dianne Craft!
Thank you so much. The materials and writings you have put together are so helpful! He’s excited to do the training and exercises now, and put his new abilities to work in lots of ways (I can hardly get him to stop playing catch with whatever’s in his hand; he could never catch it before!).
He could never catch before!
I want to share a win! I started using these methods with my daughter in March (age 6 at the time, 7 now). Today I assigned a simple report on an animal as part of her geography studies on grasslands. If I had assigned this in the Spring it would have resulted in tears, even if I had only asked for a single sentence and spelled each word for her as she went. Today she wrote three sentences on her own quite happily and has gained so much confidence! I can’t express how incredibly grateful I am for this program!
I thought I’d update you on my son. He recently has passed all of the 3rd grade words. We put them on paper and he can read all of them in less than 45 seconds! He has went from pre primer in August to where he is now! He also did make his TOP DAWG goal which means he was able to read and take the most AR quizzes in his class or be in the top 3! He had 21 AR points in the first trimester, which means he read and took 42 AR books (each one was .5 points). He is on track to do this again and has already surpassed his goal of 22 pts for this 2nd trimester. He is able to make that picture in his mind and once he has it he has it.
I am so proud of my daughter, “A”! She wrote 110 Valentines on her own!! She did not even wine or complain that it hurts!! We have come a long way with her handwriting, thank you to Dianne Craft and her Writing Eights exercises and the video, “Smart Kids Who Hate To Write.”
Thank you very much for your materials. I own most of them. It has made a huge difference in my daughter’s life. Her teacher just told me that she has made tremendous growth since last year.
My daughter has struggled with learning since she came home. I’ve been homeschooling her and have tried just about every curriculum I could find to help her with little progress. She and I were staying very frustrated. With the help from an assessment at the learning center and my own research we found she has an auditory processing disorder. This was not only affecting her learning in school but all aspects of life. I began researching how best I could get her to learn and found Brain Integration Therapy and Teaching the Right Brain. Today I started this with her and within 10 minutes of doing this new technique…This non reader read a small book with very little help. She was so excited she jumped out of her chair and started screaming and dancing!!! She CAN learn!!! Dianne Craft THANK GOD for you and for not giving up on kids! We have went from tears of frustration to tears of joy!!! She just told me “I can’t stop thinking about school, I can’t wait for tomorrow!!!” What?!? Thank you Jesus for leading me to this therapy for her! She’s finally reading and she couldn’t be happier!!
Watching my student’s face light up today as he read 21 sight words was an amazing feeling! He could only read 2 words a couple weeks ago. I’ve never seen such rapid progress in a short amount of time. This program works!
My 10 year old son, just did the word recognition test in the back of the BIT manual and could read grade 5, 6, and part of 7. He was seeing the whole word instead of sounding out each syllable. I am so proud and so is he. When we started he could only read the 3rd grade list with ease. We have been doing brain training for 17 weeks! Praise God! Thank you Dianne Craft! -Jessica
