When I started, I could not read or write and it has helped to read so I know this program works even for an elderly person such as myself.
I make it a point to tell the student this program is not only about reading. It's about reading, spelling writing, and comprehending. When you see a student you're teaching walk out of his/her session and they actually get what you've taught, is the greatest feeling in the world. My intention is to remain with the program until I am no longer able.
