Changes in handwriting and written expression in 4 months!

Parent Testimonies from current students
“Our Daughter’s life is being forever changed. A learning difficulty near that of an Intellectual Impairment. 9 months into Arrowsmith, various Cognitive Assessments now show she is closing the gap compared to her peers. Keeping with the program she will have options in life we never thought possible.”
“Our daughter last year got a C for English after getting D’s. She now no longer goes off to Learning Support for English and has moved from the bottom reader group to the middle group and no longer feels like a square peg in a round hole. Her confidence has grown, and the Deputy Principal was so proud of her winning an award at the end of the year last year. Thank you for providing this program for my daughter and changing her life.”
My son (age 7) started with Empowering Lives at the start of the term. He was struggling to understand numbers and learning how to count. After 5 weeks in the program, last night he said to me "Mum, I know how to count to 100." I was very surprised and asked how? He said, "If you can count to 9, you can work out how to count to 100."
It was like a lightbulb moment for him. We are amazed at the gains he has made in such a short space of time and so thankful for the Arrowsmith Program.
Letter from a current student
“Thank you for helping me and other children who need to do Arrowsmith more than me. I am sure that Arrowsmith will change their lives just how it has done for me. I am writing you this letter in my very best handwriting that Arrowsmith gave me but the thing is you would not have opened Arrowsmith if your family did not need help, so I think you realised that there were kids all over the world who needed Arrowsmith so you have inspired me to write a story and no matter what when I turn 18 I will remember this letter and how I was crying when I wrote it and I will remember how you changed my life and I will write a story about my journey.”
Parent Testimonies from past students
“Hi Kylie. Just wanted to give you feedback after Master D’s parent/teacher interview. He has come leaps and bounds in all areas and is one of the top in class with Maths. I am convinced this was the fruit of the clock and reflex combo. Something just clicked and your efforts contributed greatly.”
"My daughter in Year 2 has always struggled with literacy and at the parent-teacher interviews at the beginning of Term 2, they confirmed she hadn't progressed beyond level 7 reading and wouldn't pass this semester.
Four weeks into the Arrowsmith program with Empowering Lives, she has achieved Level 17 reading and will receive a passing grade for literacy! We are over the moon, as is she!"
