"My two boys have made amazing progress under Judith's instruction. In a short period of time their reading has gone up two grade levels and their spelling has gone up almost one grade level. I highly recommend Judith's Orton Gillingham Program based Reading and Writing programme." - A.F. Teacher, Toronto District School Board

"The Orton Gillingham Program resulted in a marked improvement in the level of my child's written language achievements. The emphasis on teaching explicit phonics and phonological awareness greatly improved his spelling abilities. Judith was tremendously supportive and patient, and her multi-sensory teaching methods completely engaged this student's attention. All school boards across Canada should be urged to use this program!" - J.F. Parent

"Finding Judith was a blessing! My son was really struggling in grade three, was thought to have an attitude problem and had just been diagnosed as gifted with an LD (dyslexia). He also has sensory processing issues and anxiety, and was very unhappy at school. But he was comfortable and happy with Judith immediately. She was sensitive to his needs, and his reading improved dramatically over just a number of weeks. He is now reading very fluently and is much happier and more productive at school. We are extremely pleased at the improvement. I highly recommend Judith and her program to any struggling reader." - S.L. Author and Parent

"The program has made a real difference to Briana’s confidence level. Her ability to concentrate on text has also improved, as have her memory skills. She is not afraid to tackle new words and attempts to spell them. Before she was hesitant to write and avoided reading in English. She now attempts harder books. Judith has a real rapport with Briana; she enjoys going to her classes. We are really happy with how Judith has been able to help our daughter and recommend her phonemic awareness program without hesitation.

Briana feels that she has improved. “I really like Judith’s dog Shasta. I really like going to Judith. It doesn’t feel like work. Everything is fun! I think I’ve improved in Spelling, especially in English.” Briana’s French Immersion teacher has also seen an improvement."- K.P. Parent
