The video, audio and live lessons teach you step-by-step how to improve reading, writing, and study skills.

Brain efficiency exercises make learning easier

My son has been GREATLY helped by Bonnie Terry’s Reading and Writing Program. He is fourteen now and finally reading and writing quite well. Bonnie, I want to thank you again for everything you have done to help us homeschooling parents. I recommend your reading help system to all my friends, homeschooling or not. This is the best dyslexia program we’ve used…and we’ve tried a lot of different programs. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

My son was flunking out of first grade. By chance, one of the teachers mentioned the Bonnie Terry Learning’s Awaken the Scholar Within Reading and Writing Program. Within weeks he was making progress.

I just wanted to email you to let you know how I am doing. Being in the 3rd week of the ASW Reading, Writing, and Study Skills Program, I have fully gotten into the swing of things. I find the word drills and therapy worksheets to be very relaxing. With the test taking lessons I have noticed an improvement with reading and noting each section that I read through. I feel like I am able to understand what I’m reading the first time around instead of have to read the same section over and over, just to name a few things.
The program has really helped me and I cant wait to get through the rest.

Reading, Writing, and Study Skills Program


Bonnie’s Story

I’ve been there. No one knows more than I do the pain of being a slow reader, the pain of needing reading help. In fact, when I was in the 3rd grade I was in the Bluebirds reading group. And my reading group was the lowest group. Everyone knew the Cardinals were the best readers in the class. It was No Secret, even though no one had actually told me.

With a lot of help from my mom and teacher, my reading improved, and I went on to college to become a learning disabilities specialist. I went into this field because I knew the pain reading difficulties cause, and I knew that doing things differently could make a difference. My entire future was changed when I became a proficient reader.

reading help, writing help, dyslexia program

Years later, I had my own children. They were all bright; in fact, they tested to be gifted, but reading was hard for one of my kids. He really didn’t like to read. He struggled with every reading assignment. That really frustrated me – being a specialist, spending my life helping kids to improve their own reading, and one of my sons had a hard time with it. So I did more research, spent thousands of hours and thousands of dollars to find the answers to the reading help and writing help mystery. Through research and trial and error implementation, I was able to give my son and my students the reading help they needed.

Homework time often became a nightmare

It was a battle of wills. I was hard pressed to NOT just give the answers to my son so that ‘homework time’ could be over. My stomach used to tighten up every August 1st, knowing that the homework battles would be starting soon, due to the difficulties my son had with reading. My son would skip, miss, or repeat words as he read. This made him miss bits and pieces of the text while he read. And, when he got to the comprehension questions, they didn’t make any sense to him. By the time he was in the 7th grade he flung his social studies book at me saying, “Mom, I’ve read this 5 times and I still can’t find the answer. You do it.”

Obviously things had to change, and I needed to make learning easier for my son. I realized he had some of the same vision perception problems many of my students did. I started pulling together all that I had learned and done with my students over the years and had my son do the same exercises and activities. Learning and homework time became so much easier for him!

Reading and writing help turn into dyslexia program

The best thing about developing these solutions is that they really made a difference. My students started doing so well that they no longer needed reading help! When I first published my books, games, and guides I figured that was all I needed to do to help kids with dyslexia, learning disabilities, ADHD, or autism learn faster. But shortly after the materials were available, parents called and told me how they loved the products, but could I also give them a few more tips for using them. This is how all of the Awaken the Scholar Within Dyslexia Programs came to be. I created video and audio lessons that were easy to follow, so parents could help their kids themselves and even get live support if they needed it.
