T.R.I.P.-Update #2

Last month, I introduced you to the new program we were beginning, T.R.I.P., which stands for Targeted Reading Improvement Program.  To summarize, T.R.I.P.  is a very affordable ($19.99) CD-Rom that contains 20 lessons.  Each lesson has three parts: Word Lists, Flashing Practice, and Story Cards. This program is helpful to students with Dyslexia, ADD, ADHD, and other learning problems.

Chad is doing well with the program.  The words are getting more difficult, so he is beginning to get more frequent mistakes.  His favorite part is still the Flashing Practice.  I'm amazed at how much he has progressed in that part of the program.  When we first started, we started on the slowest speed and it was hard for him to remember basic shapes to copy them down on his paper.  Now he wants to do Flashing Practice on the fastest speed, and he is successfully copying some really difficult shapes, letter combinations, numbers, and words!

All in all, we are doing well with T.R.I.P.  I believe it is helping him with reading, spelling, and memory.  I'm looking forward to seeing even more progress as the words get more difficult.  Until our next update, check out T.R.I.P at www.buytripnow.com and on Facebook!
