“Mum, why didn’t someone tell me?”

“Mum, why didn’t someone tell me that the smart kids at school could ‘see’ words and that they didn’t move?”

“Darling, I am so sorry, neither the teachers nor I realised that you didn’t ‘see’ words.  Children never get asked this basic question.  Nobody taught me and I have been able to do this without effort since I was really small.  I must have just picked it up naturally; I just assumed everyone did this. I have asked your dad and he didn’t get it either, so you can help each other with this new skill”

“And you have such great visual skills, I realised you can even rotate pictures in your imagination and that is a fabulous talent that is such a blessing for you.  It wasn’t until I listened to an introduction from Empowering Learning, that I realised that you were rotating words and that just confused you and everyone who finds spelling and reading easy can ‘see’ words.”

Do you want to have to answer this question when you child is older?  Why not look at the simplest technique available – its FAST, FUN and EFFECTIVE. Everyone can do it.
