“Jack always had problems reading and writing”

“At 58 and increasingly having to take on less physical tasks at work and home Jack was finding that his difficulties with literacy were badly affecting his life and work. This damaged his confidence causing problems with self-esteem and communication.
After 8 sessions on a literacy course, Jack has already begun to read and write with greater fluency and with growing confidence. Jack’s tutor told us that Jack now joins in discussion without hesitation and is confident in himself and his abilities, and is starting to understand he is not incapable of learning. Jack looks forward to his weekly sessions and enjoys reading for the first time in his life.”
