He'll Read when He's Ready

"He'll read when he's ready," they said.
by Jen Kehl

A homeschooling parent

Last year, other wonderful, homeschooling moms, would say, "Don't worry, he'll read when he's ready."

Last year, I knew that wasn't true.

Last year, I said things in exasperation like, "Come on Isaiah, just try!" and "You know how to spell that, we just did it!" and "I am not going to read this for you, I know you can do it."

And yet, I knew he couldn't. I knew he couldn't -- but I didn't want to believe it. I wanted to believe it was my fault, that I had failed as a teacher. I wanted to believe what everyone had told me, "When he's ready, it will click."

It did not click.

Last year, there was an elephant in the living room, and that elephant was Dyslexia.

Write the Word 25 Times

Some teachers still believe that writing a misspelled word 25 times will teach a child with dyslexia how to spell it.

That is not true -- as you can see in this photo.

They must be taught how to read and spell differently using an Orton-Gillingham based program, such as the Barton Reading & Spelling System.

Does it really work?  Yes, as this parent shared in a review she posted on Amazon:

The Barton System changed my daughter's life. She could not read or spell at all when she was diagnosed with dyslexia in 1st grade.  We immediately started her on this system.

I purchased levels the first 3 levels and tutored her myself. It is incredibly easy to learn this system and then teach it. Susan Barton has done an exemplary job of making a product that will benefit both the student and the tutor.

My daughter finished all ten levels over several years, and is now in 9th grade. She is reading well above grade level and loves sitting in her room reading a novel.

For the third year in a row, she has an A in English. She understands the rules of spelling, she knows the strategies needed to read and comprehend, and she is ever so happy.

If you are hesitating to start your child on this system - DON'T. You will be glad you started when you see the results.

I will warn you that it can sometimes be tedious and frustrating, but it makes sense. I will not lie and say that she loved every minute of tutoring. However, she made enormous progress fairly early on, which gave her the encouragement to keep going.

I cannot emphasize enough just how well this system works. Susan Barton knocked it out of the park with this one. My best purchase ever.

This great 5 minute video was created by Kristine Stewart Hass of Dyslexia411 for a reading conference in Michigan.

It not only shares the warning signs, but also the common myths -- and needed accommodations -- in 5 short minutes.

You will want to show this video to all of your child's teachers, and schools should show it at in-service training sessions.

Thank you, Kristine, for this terrific video !!!!!

During the summer, Susan Barton recommends increasing the number of tutoring sessions. Tutor every day, if possible, at your student's best time of day (not after school when students are exhausted) -- while the pressure of studying for tests and homework is gone.

Your student can make amazing progress during the summer if he is tutored every day.

If you, or any your students, will be out of town for much of the summer, tutor them remotely over the internet, using a combination technology and specials. Contact Evelyn Smith at etsmith2@cox.net and ask to watch her video that explains and demonstrates her Remote Barton Tutoring system.
