Logan came to Trinity Dyslexia Center in Meridian, Mississippi, in the fall of 2013 as a ninth-grader. She was reading below grade level and having difficulty in school. Even after putting in a full day at school, with a positive attitude, Logan went to after-school tutoring in the Essential Learning Systems (ELS) lab.
After a couple of months in the program, Logan began to pass pre-tests. As she moved into her second year, Logan really picked up steam, and she began passing even more pre-tests. During the second semester alone, she passed 10 pretests and was able to skip 30 lessons. Logan was very excited about that!
Facilitator Dottie Campbell says, "Logan comes in with a great big smile every day. She is always agreeable and ready to work on her lesson. All her hard work paid off last week when she completed the entire ELS program!
"Logan's [Diagnostic Screening Test: Reading (DST:R)] post-test showed that she gained about three years in instructional reading and more than five years in comprehension. That's great! We wish her the best and know she will do well as she begins school as a junior next year."
Tutor Janie Lifer (pictured here with Logan) has worked with Logan for two years and has taken a special interest in her. She is so proud of Logan's accomplishments!
Logan's parents shared the following note are to show how very proud they are, too:
Fantastic work, Logan!
