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.
I have a success story, and we’ve only been doing BIT for 2 weeks. My son is in 7.5 and in beginning swimming lessons since last April. He can do the kicking, but it has looked “awkward” and like he has to move his whole body to make his legs alternate kicking. Even his shoulders and head would go back and forth. Last week, after a week of the exercises, he was not moving his body near as much and his kicking looked significantly smoother and more natural! -Marika
I attended a Struggling Learner Seminar by Dianne Craft for some insight on how to help my sweet SL. She didn’t just open a door to the road to improvement, she knocked down a wall in my thinking. I can’t wait to try the stuff I learned. Thank you Dianne!
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!
My son is now staying up after bedtime to read!!!! He is 10.5. And we have been doing BIT for about 6 months -Amy
I met you at the HEAV convention last year. Thank you for making sense of my struggle in teaching my daughter! She is presently in fourth grade, but I realized from you that she was stuck at about a 1.5 grade level. She is now (after 7 months with the “Right Brain Phonics”)reading at about a third grade level. We still have a ways to go, but I was thrilled at how quickly she has been moving up. In her “free time” I have spied her picking up Dr. Seuss books and reading them to the cat…reading with confidence! – Beth
My daughter wrote mirror image backwards and now writes all words correctly. She also had dyslexia and was more than two years behind in her reading level. She just completed the placement test yesterday and is now reading at grade level!!!! My son wrote 99% of his letters from the bottom up and now writes 99% of them from the top down. We love Dianne’s whole 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.
We have been doing the brain integration therapy for 7 weeks. My son was diagnosed with “severe dyslexia” 3 years ago. Over the past 2 years he gained ground from a 1grade reading level to a 3rd grade reading level (these past 2 years and where he tested when we started Brain integration therapy.)
I decided to test him this week as we are stopping for the week of Christmas. He tested in a 4th grade reading level!!!!! And not just barely either. He read 44 words past where we had to stop with the first placement evaluation. ￼SO thankful. What a way to end the year! Even better…what a way to start the new year!
Sarah just finished reading to me…. Usually I hold the book and sometimes point to the words….. Well tonight she grabs the book and just reads the chapter in no time!! She had to sound out maybe 2 words!!!! Folks this is a answered prayer!!!! Praise Jesus!!! 🙌🙌🙌 It’s been a long 4 years to get her to this point… I can see the light at the end of the tunnel!!! Thank you Dianne Craft for all your help!!!
