MY RAVIV STORY
"Just before Christmas my parents told me that in January until the summer, I would be going to see a tutor called Karen in a place called Earlston every Saturday.
At first I wasn't very pleased because I liked going out with my friends on Saturday but soon got used to it.
The work I was given was called Raviv. I find it fun and it helps me to focus a lot more.
We did loads of things and I even got some homework from Karen to do, such as reading, poems and even worksheets. I was given an exercise to do which was a figure of 8 walk which I really enjoyed. What I did was to get four marker cones and put them on the floor and then walk round them while circling a ball round my body using my hands and watching TV.
I have really enjoyed Raviv and it has really helped me with my focus and concentration.
It took a long time to get to Earlston from where I live but I got used to it very quickly.
I would definitely advise anyone, do try it as it's great fun. I think it's a great system."
Angela, Mum to Nikki 11 year-old Dyslexia June 2012
"Hi Karen, just to let you know that Nikki won an award for achievement this year at St Ronan's Primary. It was the Endeavour Quaich, She has made so much progress with reading." Angela (Raviv programme completed June 2011)
Blair 12 year-old Dyslexia, Kilwinning May 2012
My name is Blair and I started the Raviv programme. It helped me so much that I feel 100% better. I have never felt so confident and I am looking forward to the Academy after the summer because I feel ready. So bring it on!
Allison Grandma to Blair and Callum, both dyslexic, Kilwinning May 2012
"Blair, Callum, Laura and myself would like to thank you very much for the time spent working to help the boys overcome their learning difficulties. We see a big difference and will promote the Raviv Method whenever possible."
Thank you Allison x
Mark 14 year-old Dyslexia, Livingston November 2011
I found Raviv really helpful and think it improved my work and made stuff clearer. My results from school have improved and I'm glad I did Raviv.
Brooke 12 year-old Dyslexia, Melrose February 2011
Wonderful feedback from Brooke's Mum, 1st July 2011:
"Hi Karen hope all is well with you. Just thought you'd like to hear of Brooke's recent achievements as he's done really well. Yesterday at Leavers Assembly he was presented with the Brigadier Frank Coutts Memorial Award for outstanding effort at Melrose Primary School which we were really proud of. He also had an award at the football club for the most improved player in the under 12s and was in the winning relay team at the Mini Olympics at Tweedbank where Melrose were the overall winners. So he's had a great couple of weeks. Mostly though he's just really improved in his self confidence and is ready and eagerly awaiting High School. Brooke was keen to let you know all his good news. Thanks again for your input I'm sure it's all helped. Leigh and Brooke:-)"
