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!!
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!
I wanted to share with you that my 12 year old FASD son has been following the Brain Integration Therapy for the past four weeks, as well as the Biology of Behavior nutritional plan during the same time period. He has started coming home with math and spelling tests with A’s on them, and even more importantly, he says he understands what’s going on in class and isn’t frustrated. Twice he has asked to read to me at night (this NEVER happened before) so he could show me what a good reader he is becoming. Words cannot express my gratitude, Dianne Craft!!
You greatly helped my son years ago and I’ve used your knowledge on my other children and have referred many friends to your site – even just yesterday! For that particular son, a Saturday school teacher asked me what I had done because now he was the top in the class when previously he had been on the bottom and was even remembering what she had taught him years earlier that at THAT time he could not recall! Again, thank you for your help. God bless you and your work!!!
Three years ago you put together a plan for my son. He was nine at the time and reading at about a 1st grade level, (and even struggling at that). I have to admit that there were days that we were both exhausted and wanted to quit. Progress was so slow at the beginning, and it felt overwhelming. But we persevered and now writing to you three years later, what a miraculous change! He is now 12 and reading a grade level about his age. He writes papers with perfect memory of information he read, and his spelling is amazingly accurate. His handwriting that used to look like an alphabet had a car accident is some of the best handwriting I’ve seen in a child or adult. His behavioral issues, while they have not completely disappeared, have also changed significantly. I cannot express my gratitude to you both. You have been such a blessing to my whole family.
Michael actually asked to do reading today! Epic moment! Thank you Dianne Craft for your right brain phonics reading program. I think I’m going to cry!
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
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.”
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!
A year ago, my daughter could not consistently add 2 + 3. We got her going on the brain integration therapy and using the math and reading techniques Dianne suggested. This afternoon while we were waiting for sister to get out of physical therapy, we were playing a card game. At the end of the game, I had 18 cards and she had 28. She was talking to one of the volunteers about it and he asked her how many cards there were. In her head, she figured out that she had to add the two numbers, and she added them correctly.
