"Understanding the process of the children's learning to read has really helped me to be more patient with my daughter."
"Before the workshop it was a real struggle to read together now we have made it into an enjoyable experience each day."
"It was a really great programme."
"Session 3 had a lot of 'lightbulb' moments for me - really helped me appreciate what the kids see when they try to read."
"Reinforced the importance of reading."
"Valuable programme where it's just good to hear that there are other parents in the same boat with children struggling with reading - makes you feel not so alone."
