My son is crushing it

I have a special needs child. He is in 7th grade, and hasn’t learned to read. Reading has always been a struggle with him. The schools and I have tried so many different things to help, but he just gets so frustrated and shuts down. We decided to give Ello a try, after seeing an ad for it, but wasn’t optimistic. We have been reading 2 or 3 books most nights, using the app. He well older than the first level I started him out on, so the elephants voice annoys him. Last night he picked the easiest book in the box to start. I offered to read without the app since he is doing so well, he refused saying it had grown on him and he like using it now. For his second book last night, he chose to read a book he had only read once before. Every page he read correctly, and he would fist pump. He was so proud of himself, and the end he did one last fist pump and said “crushed it”!
I am so unbelievably happy that for the first time my child is excited about reading. Thank you

20-minutes/night takes 20 minutes now

My son (7) used to spend so much time choosing which books he wanted to read for his nightly 20-minutes (stalling). He would be burnt out before we even started the clock and I would be too. With Ello, he knows the books are his level and he likes reading them over and over because he gets “better” each time. He still gets to choose which book but the reduced choices (5 books/month) are a relief for him. What once took almost an hour with whining, hand-holding and re-directing now takes 20 minutes and it is all reading, whether I sit with him or not. What once was a major pressure point has been relieved and is now enjoyable and efficient. Thank you Ello!

Renewed Excitement for Reading

My husband and I were searching for ways to bring back the fun into reading. Voices, taking turns, but you could tell our son wanted to gain that confidence on his own. I'm so grateful we were able to take advantage of Ello's first month subscription. Not even 20 minutes in, our son was hooked. He not only read through each book on his own but went back to read through them all again. We are celebrating all the success Ello has brought into our home & giddy over getting to hear our son read aloud with confidence!
