“Charlie’s reading speed has doubled since starting the Schoolvision programme. He now instigates reading and is engaged in the story. Reading has become a pleasure. His vocabulary has increased, he participates in class and his confidence has soared. This programme is helping Charlie to see and fulfil his potential.”
Sandra, mother of Charlie (7), Armagh
“Schoolvision programme has helped my child immensely – She had difficulty reading and didn’t want to read (crying, tired eyes etc.), we knew something was wrong. We heard about Schoolvision and from day 1 of her wearing her glasses we noticed a change. She felt more confident when reading, her self-esteem improved and her schoolwork improved. We have a happy child who enjoys reading and doesn’t feel different anymore.”
Siobhan, Mother of Eimear (7) Newtownbutler.
My 8 year old Grandson, Matthew is now approximately 12 weeks into the ‘Schoolvision’ programme. We have all noticed a marked improvement in his ability to read and his attitude to reading. He has developed a much more positive ‘can do’ approach where reading is concerned. He is now demonstrating a desire to ‘read for pleasure’ and reads at least a chapter a day. He now enjoys reading whereas before it was impossible to get him interested in books. His self-esteem has increased. When he gets home from school he is not as tired as he used to be and seems to have a much better understanding of how to do his homework.
His sight has definitely improved. He is forever pointing out and reading ‘public print’ – even menus in restaurants! He also spends time on his ipad ‘reading’ information about stuff like football players etc. I get at least a couple of text messages from him every day. These are all things Matthew would never have done before he started the ‘Schoolvision’ programme.

“After 9 months on the programme, my daughter has read 2 novels over the Christmas holidays. This would never have happened before ‘Schoolvision’.”

“Claudia feels that she finds it easier to concentrate on school work and enjoys reading much more. As an observing parent it has proved an encouraging experience to witness my daughter’s improved reading accuracy and increased general confidence as well as her ability to enjoy her studies.”
Trudi, mother of Claudia (12), Dungannon
“We have seen a big improvement after 6 months on the programme, our daughter’s reading speed is greatly improved and she reads with much more confidence than before. Homework is finished much quicker.”
