SoftEnglish has an excellent collection of books aiming to tackle dyslexia. It offers a well structured English teaching method accompanied by supporting material (games, posters and extra activities).
When my granddaughter started learning with SoftRead she could barely recognize the letters (…) But since learning with SoftRead she is reading, writing and understands English.
The practical, down-to-earth games and materials are easy and highly effective
A lifetime of experience wrapped up in one simple and highly effective method of teaching those with language-based difficulties, but also ideal for anyone wanting to learn the basic skills to allow them to read and write in English.
SoftEnglish´s method is absolutely eye-opening and gives many solutions in order to bring success for dyslexic learners. I highly recommend the cards and books.
I started using the Young Softread book 1 with my son who was at that time in grade one. The Young Softread programe is suitable for very young children who have not yet acquired fluent reading in their own native language. From the very first lesson, he was combining the letter sounds he learned into words and reading them. The activities in the book accompanied by the high quality Softenglish games kept him focused, engaged and having fun!
I was 69 when I heard about Ms. Daneilla and her method. I decided to give it a last chance and approached her. I am not a native speaker of English and I have severe dyslexia due to an injury and probably a brain damage. I am a very active person, a business man and a social activist. But reading English was a big challenge. I didn’t know the sounds of the letters. I found it very hard to recognize the letters and to pronounce their sounds in isolation let alone to blend them into words. I confuse the letters, I add sounds, I ignore letters… when I already know a word I can “read” it although it is not there… Oh, I am so dyslexic … even today after almost two years my reading is not fluent. But I am so happy with the method and with the results. This is the only method that succeeded in teaching me to read. All the extra techniques help me identify the patterns of reading and pronounce them. Thanks to the reading I now know some English. I can make sentences and express myself. I can read and understand although still slowly. Knowing English has been a dream for me and is now coming true. I can’t recommend the SoftRead method enough.
Abigail came home overjoyed and in shock that she understood the material easily.
What did you do to him? He went to the lesson happily and when he came home he said that learning English is fun. As soon as we got home, he wrote three sentences to show his father and me how well he’s doing.
Michael was diagnosed with a reading and writing learning disorder and had difficulties in acquiring the English language. Michael started learning English with Daniella using a special method that she developed for teaching children with learning disabilities. Michael is enjoying these English classes and does the required exercises willingly. We can already see a noticeable improvement in Michael’s reading and writing abilities after attending Daniella’s classes for a month. At the beginning Michael had occasional trouble identifying the alphabet and now he willingly started to read words and sign posts in English
I was introduced to the SoftEnglish method after being a private English tutor for over 25 years. Despite having a thriving full time business in which I had developed my own method of teaching over the years, I have left it all behind in favor of the SoftEnglish method. I tell the parents that my way was good, but SoftEnglish is better!
I’ve been using the SoftRead method for two years now and it works like magic!! I have students of all ages, 4th graders up to adults, all of them learned to read, improved their reading, speaking and reading comprehension skills thanks to the amazing books and games the program offers. I highly recommend the SoftRead materials! The students LOVE meeting the characters from the book in the games, and are surprised of how fast they can read and understand after years of struggling with English. Moreover, Daniella, the developer of the method, is one of the most professional, nice and patient persons I’ve ever met, and she always develops new materials in addition to her excellent training courses to help us, the teachers, with new ideas.
