"We just got D's scores from his middle school. In one year, D's basic reading went from 4.5 to 6.1. His reading comprehension went from 3.1 to 8.2 (over five year gain) and his composite score went from 3.9 to 6.8. School staff was astonished. I attributed it to your program. So it again demonstrates that RfS works, as you knew. But it also demonstrates that a parent can effectively tutor his child, which you doubted. So thanks again for the program".

"As you know, we have used RfS for several years... and found it to be remarkably effective for severely dyslexic children..., particularly when used in conjunction with dichotic visual stimulation techniques."

J. C., Director of Special Service

"When I started fifth grade, I had zero math skills and a 2.4 grade reading level. Tutoring lasted about two and a half years. At the end of that time, my math skills were at grade level. The school's testing in eighth grade indicated that my reading comprehension was at an 11th grade level. It still takes me a little longer to read things and I can not spell to save my life. I cannot do mathematical calculations in my head. But I graduated from college with a BSEE and a grade point average of 3.675.

D. C., research engineer

"I was very impressed with the ideas you had with regard to remediation and in fact I have had other clinicians tell me that such stimulation does indeed work..."

G.H. Research Professor and Director of Developmental Neuropsychology

"Kudos to Dorothy van den Honert for her RfS program and the "Enhanced Lateralization" that makes her phonics program succeed so dramatically. This combination outperforms other reading programs I have tried."

H. N. SPED elementary teacher

"N. was diagnosed with dyslexia when he was seven years old. He could not read at all. Today he is a junior in college with a GPA of 3.3."

A. L., mother

"Dorothy van den Honert's technique has been extremely helpful with dyslectic adult non-readers.

D. DV, teacher, adult learning center

"I took Dorothy van den Honert's course as a dyslectic adult and was helped very much by it. When my seven year old daughter turned out to be dyslectic, I had her tutored with RfS/EL for six months. She made the honor roll in middle school in public school and is now in a demanding private school. She is still on the honor roll.

L.K. , mother

"My severely dyslectic grandson was tutored for a year by a friend when he was seven years old. His reading score, after 16 weeks of RfS/EL went from 1.7 accuracy, 1.0 comprehension, to 4.3, accuracy, 2.3 comprehension. At the end of a full year of tutoring, his scores were 6.2 accuracy, and 3.4 comprehension. He is now on the honor roll in high school. Your method is truly impressive.

M. C. grandmother

"My son, H. could not read "the" in the third grade, and by fourth grade, he read The Hobbit by himself. On the school's Woodcock-Johnson reading test, H's reading level went from 3.6 to 10.5. H. found your system interesting and fun. Today reading is his first love.

S. T., mother

"My 8 year old son was seriously depressed with his "failure" to read in school. He was tutored for a year with the RfS/EL program. His scores, which were 2.7 accuracy, and 2.6 comprehension when he started, leaped to 7.4 in accuracy and 7.1 in comprehension. He was recently tested, at age 13, by a psychologist, and he was found to be reading a college level.

M. T. mother
