Homeschool Reading Software Pilot

Just a heads up everyone! Have you got a struggling reader or a child with dyslexia?

I have arranged with Nessy Learning for them to open up their free 60 day pilot to homeschoolers (normally only for school teachers).

You need to sign up to the pilot by November 9, 2015. You then get free access to the reading program software for 60 days (with no obligation to buy at the end). They claim children can make a jump in reading level of at least a grade during this time - so well worth checking out.

You will find more details on my blog
