To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
My 7-year-old has been trying to learn to read through the BRI system for some time, he gets really frustrated. He is autistic and seems to have issues processing and recalling words that he knows so I thought I would give this book a try. While it is too early to say if it is helping him learn to read we are having a lot of fun with it. The only problem I have, making it a 4 star instead of a 5 star, is that the spelling is American, which I didn't see in the description. To combat this I have been scanning the pages needed on my PC, and pasting a UK spelling over the American one.
This is helpful for me understanding what tasks our 5 year old struggles with with undiagnosed auditory processing disorder and dyslexia. It gives some tasks she can try at home although I’d like to know what strategies I could apply at home , I’m not sure the book gives me this. We’re going into year one and it’s a good level for year one
This book is very cute and easy to implement with my child, however it is geared for younger children. My daughter who is in 4th grade and severely impacted by dyslexia is still too old/advanced for this book. She reads at a 1st grade level, but because of the curriculum she already receives, this is just too young. She does enjoy it, so we still add it in. I am glad she enjoys it and there's no hard in adding it.
I like the workbook, but $15 is expensive for home use. If buying this workbook for a classroom, $15/$20 seems pretty reasonable. Kids enjoy the exercises and I do think we're getting something out of doing them. I'd buy it again, but would still be wishing it was a $10 workbook rather than $15 or so.
Shipping was late. The book came in perfect condition, but I was a little disappointed there wasn't more "meat and potatoes" to the book. It's most just busy work and not really any real substance as far as "learning to read with dyslexia". It's really easy stuff like matching words and pictures.
