The evidence speaks for itself...
Jack
 
Jack began RWI Fresh Start at age 9.A year 5 pupil with ADHD, Jack wasoften emotional and confused andwe would take him to our sensoryroom to help him relax.
 
How was Jack’s reading andwriting before Fresh Start?
Jack could not complete any taskwithout one-to-one support in theclassroom. He struggled to readmost texts and his writing wasalmost unreadable. Support hadbeen given to Jack in previous yearsbut it had not really helped.
What differences did younotice after six months?
Since joining Fresh Start, Jackhas really taken on board thestrategies we have been using andso far has improved his readingage by 16 months. He seems muchhappier in himself and I believe theconsistency of Fresh Start has playeda huge part in his increased self-confidence. Jack’s writing hasimproved and is now moreunderstandable. He is becomingmuch better at finishing written tasks.He no longer needs our sensory roomand his behaviour is much calmer.
What does Jack think now?
Jack wrote ‘I think I am good atreading and I like reading!’
Paige
A Year 6 pupil who joined the schoolin Year 4. Paige didn’t know manyletter sounds. She was involvedwith a range of different interventionsbut little progress was made.
 
How was Paige’s reading andwriting before Fresh Start?
Paige’s reading was very poor, witha reading age of 4.6 years. She wasonly able to read and spell CVCwords and a few very highfrequency words. She was unableto do a piece of writing unaided.
What differences did younotice after six months?
There has been a vast improvementin Paige since being involved in FreshStart. Her reading age has improvedby 17 months and she enjoys readinga wider range of text. Paige now writesindependently and only seeks helpwith complex spellings (although sheattempts them herself first). Paige’sattitude to working in general haschanged. She is now ready to learn.
What does Paige think now?
She is really pleased with theprogress she has made. She is proudof what she has achieved in such ashort space of time. She also feelsthat the Fresh Start program didn’tfeel like learning as it was fun.
