Upon suggestion from the school, we began using Reading Buddy Software…The methodology focuses on self-learning through repetition…The software is user friendly and enables him to navigate its use without the need for parental guidance…We have also noticed marked improvement…

I love Reading Buddy because I like reading books and these books are very fun to read. I like to wear my headset and use the computer by myself. I also like to get my prizes!

Because Reading Buddy Software wasn’t a physical book it was fun and it was exciting for her. She could get prizes and she picked it up every day.

This program had it all figured out – an interactive reading program with real time feedback that also focused on comprehension…My 7 year old is able to navigate his way through the program independently…

Having a wonderful husband, a household to run, a full time job, and two busy children with after school activities, did not allow me the time needed to help our son improve his reading. Reading Buddy Software has been a lifesaver and my son really enjoys it. He loves that it’s on the computer, and I have not heard one complaint from him when asked to do his daily lesson. This past weekend, I found him doing it all on his own without being asked.

Congratulations to Memo Emre of Huntington Beach, California, a young boy who dramatically improved his fluency by using Reading Buddy Software. Here is a note Memo’s parents received from Memo’s teacher. Many thanks to Mr. Emre for forwarding us the note—you made our day!

I had a big reading test… I practiced Reading Buddy every day and I passed it!

…my 2 girls are fighting over who gets to use Reading Buddy first. Also, they are comparing the stories and recommending which stories to read to each other.

Reading Buddy Software is a great system and I can only imagine how many kids’ lives this will affect and change for the good.

My daughter is highly dyslexic and resisted all reading until it came to Reading Buddy. With its kid friendly graphics and the reading independence it promotes, it quickly became her favorite part of our nighttime routine. I didn’t think anything could help her. Reading Buddy did.

We are very pleased with the reading program. By using this program, we have seen our child (age 8) build confidence and improve at school. His teacher said whatever we are doing has been a big benefit to him. He looks forward to reading each day.  I would highly recommend this program.

With this program she is the one who reminds ME that she has to do Reading Buddy. She looks forward to it.

What a wonderful experience this has been for our daughter… she loves Reading Buddy! Even without the incentive program, she’s eager to use Reading Buddy – she enjoys the challenge.

Our son loves the product. What I realized immediately upon his usage was that the speech passages were immediately highlighting the words he mispronounced. He then corrected himself and continued to move through the exercises.

I work full time and have 3 kids so I don’t have as much time to read with my kids as I would like. Especially my 10 year old who has reading issues. So Reading Buddy does it for me.

Her favorite part is she got to choose her prize…She loved being able to read and not having any adult tell her when she made a mistake.

I used Reading Buddy for my six year old son who was getting frustrated trying to read to us parents at home. He enjoyed the experience of reading out loud but without concerns of being corrected by an actual human. Hi reading ability, confidence and fluency did seem to improve considerably during the time he was using the product. The company was responsive to any issues.

My brother, William Barton contacted you this past year about my niece, Ella. She has been struggling with reading since Kindergarten. She is now in the 5th grade, and I’m so happy to tell you what a HUGE difference Reading Buddy Software has made in her life!

In Texas, the 4th graders have 3 STAAR tests that they take. She actually passed the reading test for the first time this year!  She called me this past Friday night to tell me that she just got a new track phone because that was one of the prizes she picked out to receive if she did a great job with Reading Buddy Software :). My brother and sister-in-law don’t have to beg her to read anymore :). She does it on her own, without being told!  I can’t tell you how thrilled I am about this!  Thank you so much for creating Reading Buddy Software!!! I’m sure you have helped numerous struggling readers!  So…God bless you for that :)

My 8-year-old son was behind his grade level for reading. For whatever reason, he didn’t qualify for the Title 1 reading program through his school. Unfortunately, with our schedules my husband and I don’t have a lot of extra time to sit down and practice with our son. Yes, we read nightly but he needed more practice. We gave Reading Buddy a shot and within 3 months he caught up to his grade level. We’re so proud of his accomplishments and thankful for the help Reading Buddy provided us.

I want to let you know how much this has helped my son. He improved his reading score by 500 points from fall to winter.

You may certainly post my praise for Reading Buddy. I am a former teacher and truly love what you have created. It is a great program. My third grade grandson is a struggling reader and I am thrilled to have found this program. Your information concerning fluency and comprehension makes so much sense. In fact, all of your newsletters are “spot on”. Your concept is brillant!! We love and need Reading Buddy Software.

Reading buddy is working well…both boys have done numerous stories without incident. We are noticing an improvement in their reading, plus they really enjoy the stories, and we don’t have to push too hard for them to do Reading Buddy every day.

One 30 min session and my anti reader, hates to read, learning disability, super frustrating, yet super smart 9 year old loves it. I mean, he was so super psyched that he didn’t have to read to us, we were getting frustrated with him to focus! He earns prizes and points and Bonus- he gets to use my Mac. Win Win. Thank you for developing this! I cannot wait to see improvements and hear more about Space Trash!

My daughter was recently diagnosed with dyslexia & Reading Buddy gives her the extra reading practice she needs with added support and no added pressures of having to read to someone.  Reading Buddy’s interactive design allows her to improve her word recognition, fluency as well as comprehension.  I would highly recommend it to anyone looking to incorporate additional guided reading in their child’s day.  It is a great program!

This is going to be life changing for my son. We are on day 2 of our new Reading Buddy program. My 12 year old son who has learning disabilities and has struggled with reading his whole life said something this morning he has never said. “I can’t wait to do my reading after school!” Are you kidding me!!!??? So far, he is excited, and so am I. We set up prizes/points, and he’s enjoying it. I think I need to invest in the suggested mic/headset you recommended because the xbox One mic seems to not hear him very well, even after the mic checks. That’s fine. I will recommend this to everyone who has a struggling reader. Just incredible.

I love Reading buddy!!! I have told several mom’s about it. I especially love the educational reads.

My son has been using the program regularly for about 3+ months. We have seen real progress. He has made A’s on his report card twice now in Reading/Language Arts for the first time ever. We are still working with him to learn to “enjoy” reading, but it’s slowly happening now that he seems to not struggle as much.

So I just wanted to say thanks, and I think the program is making a difference for him!

Reading buddy is a great program- one we will be purchasing again next year. When it worked it was fantastic! The students enjoyed it.

We just got going with Reading Buddy Software. My son said he likes how the program works! This is a big win! He’s had such a reading struggle! I can’t even explain it!

…We are planning to use this program all summer to catch up and make big strides.

Thank you for creating such a great program.

Reading Buddy Software is great for young readers. My son loves the fact that he could receive a prize after he reaches each goal. That was his favorite part! I would recommend this software for all readers.

Something incredible is happening in our home – our daughter is excited about reading!!!!!!!!! She is super happy to read on the Reading Buddy software. We are very, very pleased!

My 9 year old daughter has been using reading buddy for a week now and I’m seeing progress. She was struggling with reading and comprehension and didn’t have a desire to read. Now, with the program, she is getting into a routine and not having to be dependent on us, her parents, to make time to read with her. I’m so happy that I stumbled on this information on the internet.

My kids started using this on Wednesday and I have to say love it!

I am a kindergarten teacher. My children should be geniuses and I should not need help if they do struggle. LOL. But my son was struggling and I tried doing it myself!  And it was awful!   We would fight and fight.

Also, my other two kids needed something to help with homework.   I was looking through reading tutors and found your program.  Love it!  He loves it.  My other two love it!  They earned their first prize yesterday!  Best part they are reading and no one is crying!

Thank you!

I wanted to know if Reading Buddy renews automatically because I want to cancel at the end of my month. My son was with me this past month while on summer break and will be returning to his mother this week-end. This has been a great tool for me to have while he was here. Thank you!

Reading buddy played a big part in helping to improve my dyslexic son’s reading over the summer of 2016. For the first time there was a verbal program that he could use frequently and often enough to make a difference. He was very motivated by his goal of 750 pts with a reward we both agreed upon and by the end of the summer had achieved!

I recommended reading buddy to his tutor who is now recommending to her clients!

We are using Reading Buddy. Already seeing improvement, and so far she doesn’t mind doing it. Thanks!
