Mitzi Reavis, RN, BSN and mother of two dyslexic boys, shares her thoughts on her experience working with Lexercise.
“Our family is currently doing Lexercise with our 7-year-old dyslexic son. He is doing well and loves it. We tutor at home once per week online with my laptop and a webcam. Our son then has prescriptive Lexercise games to do daily. I also have lesson material sent to me via email to work with him as well. Our 18-year-old eldest son is dyslexic as well. Years ago we tutored with Sandie Barrie-Blackley, founder of Lexercise in her private practice. She is a great tutor and my son did excellent. We loaded our children in the car and drove to the appointment and waited while our son tutored.
Fast forward to today – would I choose to drive to a tutor lesson or Lexercise in the comfort of my home? I love having tutoring in my home and not having to travel. Sandie was a great tutor, but I enjoy Lexercise at home and am thankful she had the vision to create it.”
