“My son is a 7-year old, newly-diagnosed with Dyslexia but the school was saying “speech and language impairment.”  He was a DRA level 3 at the end of 1st grade, and his self esteem was incredibly poor.

He loved his time at eXL and by the end of this past summer, he was reading at a DRA level 10 and his penmanship was much improved over that time.  He was lucky to get the same teacher for 2nd grade this year, and she was so impressed with his progress.  He’s now at a DRA 16 and continues to make small improvements using the skills he learned this summer.  He is able to participate in classroom activities now without fear of not being able to keep up, and that is resulting in much better behavior in addition to better test scores.

I think what he enjoyed most was Reader’s Theater.  Fortunately I worked nearby, so I was able to see both performances.  The kids read from Charlie & the Chocolate Factory at the performance and they were all so proud when they read their parts perfectly.  Really made reading enjoyable for them.”
