Our 7 year old son was having a hard time learning to ride a bike and he really wanted to do it by his 8th birthday. We got him this glider for Christmas and he began gliding. In April, 2 weeks before his birthday, he decided he was ready to try his regular bike. So, [...]

Rosetta Stone is well worth the money!!

May 24th, 2011 (No Comments)

This product is fabulous! I am using it for my 10 year-old son who has autism and struggles with basic language. He is benefiting tremendously from the combined visual and auditory presentation of language, plus the kinesthetic aspect of using the computer keeps him engaged. I also like the supplementary audio companion and worksheets that [...]

I started gently teaching my son letter sounds at the age of 2.  He had learned colors, numbers, shapes, and letter names already, so other than fine motor skills, it was about all I could think of to teach him. I started with another reading program and he did it, but he didn’t particularly like [...]

Put this on your child’s wish list for them! We held off on buying these for years because of the price, but when we lucked out and happened to see they were on sale last year before Christmas one day we jumped on the offer quickly to try them out and haven’t regretted the purchase [...]
