Quotes Since working with Barbara Hoi, I?ve been able to grasp concepts that were obstacles to learning throughout primary school, high school and my university years. No educator could teach me in all those years what Barbara taught me in 5 days. More than that, she has helped me to join the dots to a larger understanding of how my brain works and how to get the most of it. This insight surpasses relief, for me it is unquestionably a life-changer. Barbara is a highly knowledgeable and skilled professional, who is warm, optimistic and committed to her students' learning success. If you have the joy of being her student, I encourage you to follow her guidance to the letter, and it?s likely your life could change too. Quotes

Quotes Jamie is gearing up to return to school tomorrow. His end of year report from last year was worlds away from the first report of the year so that's great. I can't find it right now (if I could I'd scan it for you to take a look at) but lots of comments about his improved attitude, application and willingness to try things. I'm very grateful to you.

Quotes Hi Barbara, Hope you are really well. I really enjoy your posts - thank you. I recently read the book you lent me last year (on a recent holiday) and found it extremely helpful. So much many of us can relate to in your words. Luka is doing really well and has improved greatly with his maths. Take care and kind wishes Caroline Quotes

Quotes Hi Barbara, Thanks for your email, it is always lovely to hear from you. Lachie still speaks about you a lot, I think you made quite an impact on him! We are reading books easier than HP, but my thought is that al least he is reading. I actually heard him say to his sister that 'he enjoys reading now'. I couldn't stop smiling. We are also working through the 'Tricky words'. We have done 4 days on average each week. Thanks for everything, Kylie Quotes

Quotes If my son's year 3 Naplan results hadn't been so bad, I wouldn't have sought out external help and wouldn't have realised he was dyslexic. Teachers kept telling me he was fine. We now see Barbara Hoi of Sydney Dyslexia and have improved soo much. It's a long way from Wagga to the Entrance to attend her courses but so worthwihile. So whilst I do not like naplan, I do remain grateful that it was a catalyst for getting him assistance with his gift that is dyslexia. Quotes

Quotes What have I got out of this: I have just read my first book and understood it. It was a very enjoyable read and I was very proud that I finished it. Also, I have learnt ways to spell words that I couldn't spell before (like ellipsis). My Maths which wasn't very good, is now a lot better. I know now all the concepts of maths, place value, addition, subtraction, times tables, percentages, fractions, decimals, ratio and algebra. And it all was much easier than I thought. Also, I won't have to worry about giving people the wrong change at work. I am more confident in all aspects of my life. All thanks to Barbara! Quotes

Quotes Hi Barbara, We miss you! I wanted to touch base and again thank you for the wonderful work you did with James. On Monday, a surprising thing happened. We'd stopped at a book store and he'd chosen a book he was interested in 'Horror' by Anthony Horowitz. On the journey, Jamie announced that he was interested in the last story because it was in a different print and he was intrigued. Without any prompting he started to read the story to me. He was getting stuck on words for sure and I'd glance over and say any of those words but he read the whole story with complete comprehension and a good degree of fluency. How's that!!? I must say, something like that would never have happened previously. Jamie loved it and thought you should know. Blessings, Melissa Quotes

Quotes "My son (15) completed a dyslexia correction programme with Barbara in April this year. After three days I heard him read from a 'Harry Potter' book and I couldn't hold back the tears. He had never read a book of that complexity before (or any book above reading level 2). I was so touched by the joy and the pride in his face. The written word which had so undermined and confused him all his life could now become his friend and support. I always knew my son was very intelligent and yet we had given up after trying and failing so many special classes and programs. I am delighted that he is on the right track now, motivated and empowered to read, learn and dream" Quotes

my son now reads Harry Potter!

Quotes "Being an adult dyslexic, my approach to general work is always achieved through tactile and visual means. These very two strengths have also allowed me to creatively avoid any situation which require input in literacy and numeracy. I struggled endlessly with non picture words which then severely impacted my ability in comprehending anything. The truth is you can only run and avoid it for so long. I decided to work with Barbara and face these challenges. Looking back, it was a life changing decision to do this course. Using my visual/tactile learning preference, Barbara guided me in understanding the basic functions of trigger words and its associations with the correct grammar. For the numeracy aspects, Barbara also taught me the foundations of maths which was immense in understanding the mechanisms and representations. By the end of the week, I had a deeper meaning of the words and their connections in sentences, which led to full comprehension. Thank you again Barbara!!" Quotes
