Adults with DyslexiaJune 30th, 2009
I just received a question regarding using the products in the Reading Pack: Five Minutes to Better Reading Skills, Making Spelling Sense & Making Spelling Sense II and Ten Minutes to Better Study Skills. Here is the question:
The Bonnie Terry Reading Pack – is this pack recommended for me? I am 39 years old and I have serious problems with reading comprehension. I would appreciate your help with books or tip because most of them are for kids.
I have a quick video here where I tell how using the Five Minutes to Better Reading Skills component of the Reading Pack made a huge difference in a 55 year old’s life. I also used the other components with him, but he was really able to see his progress concretely with the Five Minutes to Better Reading Skills component of the learning pack. One of the things I was very conscious of when I created/wrote all of my books, games, and guides was to not make them ‘cutesy’ – only for young students. The books, games, and guides are for all ages. Here is the video.
