What They Say
A repeating 1st-grade student…began Bowman’s O-G “Plus”… reading Kindergarten-level text and steadily improved, reading solidly at the 1st-grade (and even 2nd-grade) level… Feedback received from his new school was that they were not concerned about his reading level. Bowman’s O-G “Plus” made a significant difference for this student!
Elizabeth T., Reading Specialist
I have seen how Bowman’s O-G “Plus” empowers our students and teachers. This evidence-based program has helped our students make significant gains in their reading abilities. Our teachers now have more strategies to use in their classrooms to foster a love of reading.
Best Professional Development, Increased Student Attention and Participation
Bowman’s O-G “Plus” is the best intervention for teaching students with significant deficits in phonological awareness, phonics, decoding, encoding, and reading fluency skills…Special Educators and Reading Specialists have indicated that the 60-hour training was the best professional development that they have participated in. Teachers have expressed an increase in student attentiveness and participation with the multisensory approach.
Coordinator of Elementary Programs
When I started first working with Stephanie and using Bowman’s O-G “Plus”, I was angry. Stephanie was the first teacher or person to not give up on me and just tell me what the answer was. She made me work for it every time. It was extremely difficult, and I used all of my avoidance strategies to try and get out of the work, but eventually, I started to GET IT. I started gaining confidence in my academic abilities and that feeling is indescribable. I am now in college and so proud of myself. I can’t speak highly enough about Stephanie and Bowman’s O-G “Plus”.
Bowman’s O-G “Plus” graduate
I knew something was different when [my son] was 4 or 5, and he was not able to read…Things started to click and we enrolled in Bowman’s O-G “Plus” in 2nd grade. The most important and profound thing… is that it taught him to see dyslexia as a gift. He is his own advocate. He understands how his brain works differently and has the skills and knowledge to apply the rules of language to reading, writing, and math.
