“As a teacher, I work with many struggling readers. When my own child failed to learn to read, our nightly reading time turned into a battle. Fortunately, I was piloting Vera’s Reading Coach’sToolkit. Now instead of fighting us, she brings books and asks us to practice with her. I experimented by having her read a typical early reader with simple sentences, simple words and simple ideas. She struggled and paused to sound out each letter. Then she read a difficult book using Vera’s approach. I couldn’t believe it was the same child! Now I am changing the lives of my struggling readers at school as well.”
