Has anyone used the Wilson Reading System to Help their child?
My 8 year old daughter has been struggling with reading since the first grade.
She has been seeing a tutor since July of last year. In the begining of second grade, she was also put in a school program for struggling readers. At the begining of second grade, her reading level was E, by January of this year she was at reading level H.
They took her out of the reading program in January because her scores made her inelligible. They just tested her again and her current reading level is K. The reading level she should be on is M/N.
I am wondering if I should continue with the same tutor she's been seeing, or if we should try something different. I was looking online and came across a tutoring center that uses the Wilson Reading System. I suspect my daughter may have mild dyslexia, and they say the Wilson Reading system is good for kids with dyslexia. I am waiting to get an appointment to have her evaluated for it, but in the meantime, I was thinking about trying this Wilson system.
Has anyone used this system for their child and were they happy with the results?
There's also the issue of cost. The current tutor I have for my child is $36 an hour. The tutor that uses the Wilson Reading system charges $65 an hour.
I'm not sure since now she's only a couple of level below grade level if it's worth the money to try the Wilson Reading system, or if I should just continue with the tutor we currently have. I don't have any complaints about the tutor we currently have, only she doesn't bring any worksheets or anything with her. She basically just have my daughter read books, and they practice sounding out words.
And even though the tests say my daughter's gotten better, I honestly have only noticed a small improvement. When I have her read to me, she still hesistates on simple words, and still has problems sounding out words.
So I'm wondering if I would notice a diffence with the Wilson Reading System and if it's worth the extra money.
