Our students’ successes are not only empowering for them, but also help to set the bar and pave the way for the next generation of dyslexic students. These accomplishments provide hope for parents and students alike, demonstrating that dyslexia does not need to hinder one’s ability to reach their true potential.
My name is Nissan and I am 20 years old now, and until I was 19 many teachers tried to teach me to read and spell but they were not really successful in doing so. Then at 19, I met Marcy and started to learn with her an hour and twenty minutes, once a week. We learned for about six months and thanks to her devotion and most important her special technique, which through it, I learned to read and spell.
She started to change, and she started to blossom, and she went from a child who couldn’t look in your eyes […] to a child now who is working in an elementary school.
Jack loves to come here. He comes out with a big smile on his face and we’d like to see other kids to be able to benefit.

I have had the honour of getting to know Marcy Scott over the past year. Although, some might say that we have only just met however, in such a short time it was Marcy that has changed my daughter’s life. She has given my daughter the single most important gift, her dignity. Marcy has an infectious passion when it comes to teaching children to read but I believe her true talent is breathing the life back into my family.
It doesn’t affect just the academics, it affects confidence, motivation, self-esteem, the willingness to socialize, everything.

In reference to the chart system used at Logical Letters: it just helps you have a different way of thinking.
A lot of it also was him being able to talk to someone, just about how frustrated he was.
I met Tanya in grade 5 and somehow school started to become easier. I always thought I wasn’t good in math. But then when I worked with Tanya I learned that I didn’t have to memorize formulas or steps, and I could use logic to solve a lot of the problems… by understanding what I was really doing, I realized I was smart in math and not incapable like I thought before.
It wasn’t 'learn your alphabet, learn this, do it like this', it was actual tricks, actual stories to it.
This letter is to attest that my son Josh has been working with Marcy and her Logical Letters program for nearly one year with amazing results.
When Josh first started the program he read at achingly slow speed trying to decode each letter, often unsuccessfully. At present, since working and understanding this new method of the Logical Letters program, Josh’s speed has improved and his decoding is usually right.
They make the kids feel special.
It made me feel better about myself when I could read and write. It made me feel really special. Every time I went here, its like, YES! I learned a lot, and I’ve done so much.

I’ve always been very good at remembering stories; stories for some reason just stay with me. So the fact that there was all these stories that interconnected, in the sense that they all took place in the same world, allowed me to remember these seemingly random rules and somehow make sense of them.
I wouldn’t really call it a community, I would more call it a family!
It just opened up her whole world. She became an engaged person who loved to learn, who wanted to learn, who wasn’t afraid of learning.

My son, Jackson, is warm, kind, soft spoken and loves to learn something new every day. When he was a little boy, learning through conventional methods was a terrible chore that caused great anguish for both of us.

It all came together into this beautiful thing where Charlotte could read and write and where she felt great.

Now I realize the depth of the challenge. It shows me pride in who my daughter is.

If it wasn’t for Logical Letters, I would not be where I am today. From a young age, Marcy created an atmosphere that was comfortable and understanding, and that focused on my strengths to teach me something I couldn’t do anywhere else. Logical Letters eliminates the difficult rote memory aspects of learning how to read and write, which in my opinion it is rote memory that most dyslexic people have a problem with. It is also a rote memory system that is used in every school.
Marcy makes me understand! She helped me read more than I ever could with her special charts and stories. She always makes learning fun and no stress and she gets me! Marcy is so great and a kind teacher! I wish Marcy could be my everything teacher! Love you Adyson.
Adyson (Grade 2 Student)
I remember stories were a big thing for everyone, but I used to adapt them a little. With the storytelling I just learned that it’s a very good trick in terms of learning things.
