In 2017, after school term 3, we were called to school to discuss Siphesiphe`s progress and were told that our daughter is not coping in mainstream. We were recommended to seek professional help and find a special school for her.
Siphesihle was 10 years old and in Grade 4. She was struggling in all areas, unable to read and write as well as communicate. She would even forget what she wanted to say.
Being young parents, you expect everything to be perfect for your child. This was not the case. It wasn’t easy for us, but we had to be strong for her and support her.
We took her for professional help and she was diagnosed with dyslexia. My colleague recommended Edublox. We requested the school to give her a second chance as she was going to enrolled at Edublox the following year. We agreed, however, that she repeat grade 4.
In 2018, Siphesihle enrolled at Edublox attending two lessons per week. During the first term her performance started to improve, she gained confident, and was able to do her homework on her own. I also noticed other changes such as improvement in spelling and handwriting. Before, you would hardly be able to read what she had written. Even her class teacher started referring parents to contact me.
Siphesihle is currently in Grade 5, and I can proudly say she is doing great — her future is so bright. Her academic average progressed from level 2 to level 6. We even recommend Edublox to one of our colleagues.
We would like to thank the Edublox teachers for the amazing work that they are doing for our kids. Without Edublox, as working parents, our life wouldn’t be easy.
