“I was considered smart and hard-working, but I always felt cheated. I thought other kids were having fun while I had to study so much harder than anyone else to get good grades. Some teachers claimed I was not motivated.
“Betty was the first professional and the only person I had spoken with who saw dyslexia as a talent. She gave me a sense of respect and validation which enable me to go out there to ‘do it.’ I was burnt out on education. My whole dream crushed. I thought I would never be able to do anything.
“She teaches proven techniques to help you improve your life. I can do anything and be what I want because of Betty’s program. What she teaches will bring you educational, emotional, and physical rewards that far outweigh the cost of the program.
“This is the only way I know of to turn your failures into success and to achieve your dreams and goals.”
- Scott, age 32
“I was reversing words and letters when reading and writing. It was really hard to concentrate. I was scared of my teacher, who yelled a lot. I couldn’t go into the learning disabilities program because you needed to be two grades behind, and I was behind one, getting Ds and Fs though I tried to do well.
“I began on Valentine’s Day in 1992. Betty knew exactly what I was going through. She could describe the problem and taught me how to explain it to others. I learned that my ability to perceive things from many sides was a gift. It was like a miracle.
“I began getting 100% on my spelling tests. I could do math. I learned how to center myself before a work period or a hard subject.
“Now I can usually just check to make sure I’m focused. I’m now getting straight As. I feel really good that I had the opportunity to go through Betty’s program. It changed my life!”
- Sylvia, age 12 (attended when age 10)
