T.R.I.P.-Update #1

Last week, I posted about a new reading program we were starting-you can read that introductory post here.  T.R.I.P. stands for 'Targeted Reading Improvement Program' and helps those with Dyslexia, ADD, ADHD, and special needs  improve their reading skills.  With Chad's Dyslexia, Dysgraphia, and other learning disabilities, he is at about a 1st-2nd grade level in reading, but he is in 4th grade.  I am always eager to try anything that may help him.  Reading has always been so important in my life, and I want him to have that same love and excitement for reading.

To summarize, the T.R.I.P. CD-Rom contains a step-by-step Home Reading Lesson, which shows you how to do the program, and then 20 lessons. Each lesson has three parts: Word Lists, Flashing Practice, and Story Cards.  This program is only $19.99-quite a bargain if you've ever looked into some of the reading programs out there!

So, we have done two lessons so far.  The lessons took us about 20-25 minutes each, and the words were very easy for Chad.  The words will get harder as we go along, so I think it's good he is feeling good about himself with these first lessons.  His favorite part was Flashing Practice-he enjoyed the challenge of trying to remember what word had just flashed up on the screen.  I'm impressed with the program so far, and I'm excited to see how it will go when the words get challenging for Chad.  I'm hoping to see a good improvement in his reading!

Until our next update, check out T.R.I.P at www.buytripnow.com and on Facebook!
