A program designed to improve writing skills

“My kids really needed writing help! My 5th grader, 7th grader, and 9th grader all struggled every time they got a writing assignment. I really didn’t know how to help them improve writing because I never liked writing papers either. Thankfully, we found Bonnie Terry’s Writing Program. I was worried at first because she took my kids back to writing sentences. They didn’t like that until they understood that sentences were the building blocks of paragraphs and essays. It didn’t take long before they went on to paragraph and essay writing. I guess they really did need that foundation work because the program really worked. Their grades went from C’s to B’s and then A’s and they no longer fussed about their writing assignments. I was able to use the same program for all three of my kids. What a bargain. Thanks Bonnie!”

Are you struggling to improve your writing skills?

Do you or your child need writing help? Dyslexic? ADHD? Do you have learning difficulties? Autism? This writing skills program is specifically designed to improve learning skills for struggling learners in 20 minutes a day. The video lessons teach you step-by-step how to improve sentence writing, paragraph writing, and essay writing.

Are writing assignments difficult?

It’s not just those with dyslexia, learning disabilities, and ADHD that struggle with writing. Too many students struggle with writing. According to the Nation’s Report Card, 73% of eighth graders and 12th graders are not proficient in writing. That is 7 out of 10 kids or 21 out of 30 kids in a class struggling in writing!

Improve writing skills with the help of brain efficiency exercises

In addition to learning step-by-step how to help your child, you also learn specific brain efficiency exercises that stimulate the brain. These exercises make more neuro-networks, making learning and processing information easier.

This step-by-step program gives you the tools and confidence you need to work with even the most challenged writer—and their confidence and expertise grows exponentially as you work the program and take advantage of the video lessons.

A program that provides more than just writing help…

Writing skills problems are typically caused by one or more areas of perception that impact learning. With this ASW Program, you will address those areas of perception. At the same time, you will learn the writing skills you’ve been missing in 20 minutes a day.

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.
