Proud Father Helping Dyslexic Child To Read in Hong Kong
“I have been using “Toe By Toe” to teach my daughter how to read since I was introduced to the book by a former teacher who is very enthusiastic about helping children with dyslexia. My daughter was recognized to have dyslexia when she was 7. Reading was a very difficult task and unpleasant experience to her. We almost couldn’t find any training material for her to improve her reading skills in her speed until we picked up your great book “Toe By Toe” and gave it a try. Now my daughter can read much better. I have to express my sincere appreciation for your family’s work of helping countless families with helpless children. We are writing to you because we believe your great material not only can help children with dyslexia but also can help ESL children. Not to say it can help children of both ESL and dyslexia. In Hong Kong, especially in China and most Asian countries, people seldom know about the book and many helpless families are still seeking in darkness. … Thanks to the Great Teacher, Keda Cowling and the whole family” Mr JJ Mok – parent, Hong Kong June 2017
Toe By Toe – A Book for EVERY Child Learning to Read – Canadian Mother
“Dear Heather, I wanted to thank you so much for introducing my son Parker to the Toe By Toe program. After years of struggling with reading and writing, at age 9 he was finally diagnosed with Dyslexia and Dysgraphia. By this time his confidence had been extremely crushed and he suffered from anxiety. My husband and I had spent thousands and thousands of dollars on Sylvan and eye therapy. Nothing helped.
“When you introduced Parker to the Toe By Toe program I was so excited. We have not yet finished the program, but thus far his reading has improved ten fold. His confidence has also gone up and he now looks forward to going to school. Parker now reads books on his own and to his sisters.
“Toe By Toe has been a complete life saver. I truly believe every child learning to read could benefit from Toe By Toe, not just the ones who have Dyslexia or trouble reading. Once again Heather my husband and I would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Sincerely, Tracey.”

I started Toe By Toe straight away and I am now in Year 6 and have just completed it. It has helped me a lot with my reading and also my spellings. I have just got my pen license for the first time. I didn’t get it in Year 5 but I got it this year.”

Rapid Reading Age Improvement Using Toe By Toe in the U.S.
“I bought Toe By Toe after reading about it on a blog. We are half way through it and my dyslexic son’s reading level has already improved by one grade level. I cannot say enough good things about this book. It is easy to use. We only do it for about 10-15 minutes a day. It is a bit boring, but that is fine. It works! I highly recommend it and I have done to lots of people.”
