Ellie was struggling with reading.
If she followed the words on the page, she struggled to put the whole picture together in her mind. Pictures came to her mind if someone read to her but then flowed away like a boat without an anchor. Her mother learned that sometimes if you read aloud with a child while they followed the words in the book with their finger, it could help. But with their schedule of sports practices and other activities, it was hard to find time to sit and read together.
Ellie’s mother heard about the pathway player online and decided to try it. They were both amazed at how quickly Ellie could start remembering every detail she read. Since it’s not much bigger than a lipstick the device easily fits in Ellie’s backpack so she can practice reading in the car between activities.
