Dyslexia and reading difficulties in the USA

Does your child, or a loved one, have reading difficulties such as dyslexia?

Are you a teacher of dyslexic students?

Do you know anyone diagnosed as dyslexic, or who show symptoms of dyslexia?

If so, you have probably seen and felt their pain and frustration.

You know they are bright. You know they are intelligent.

But due to their possible dyslexia and reading difficulties, decoding and understanding text is a huge challenge for them.

As a result, they are not realising their full potential.

Dyslexia – The Solution: Toe By Toe

Fortunately, there is a proven and affordable solution available.

With more than 500,000 copies purchased worldwide by parents, schools and teachers in the last 20 years,

Toe By Toe has transformed not just tens or hundreds, but thousands of lives.

From primary school children ridiculed by their peers for their ‘slowness’.

To teenagers heading on the wrong path because they felt marginalised and ‘stupid’ for their poor reading skills.

To illiterate and semi-literate adults in the prison system, repeat offenders unable to hold down a steady job on ‘the outside’ because of their poor literacy skills.

Toe By Toe has helped them all.

NB: Some of the pages, resources and material on this site are ONLY available to Toe By Toe VIP Club Members.

The Benefits of Toe By Toe

Toe By Toe not only dramatically improves a person’s reading age and ability and helps them overcome their dyslexia and reading difficulties. Whatever a student’s situation:

  • the ‘slow’ primary school child

  • the repeat offender
  • plus many others!

Toe By Toe also improves a person’s potential for learning … their self-esteem … their confidence and belief in their own abilities and what they can achieve.

Who, How & When?

Who Can Toe By Toe Help? Toe By Toe supports any child or adult who has difficulty indecoding (reading unfamiliar words) or reading fluently.

Children and adults, teenagers and senior citizens, from 7 to  70 (and older!), can all benefit from following the Toe By Toemanual if they have difficulties in reading.

As these testimonials from parents of autistic children show, Toe By Toe has also proved successful for Autistic Children with reading difficulties.

How does Toe By Toe work?

How is it taught and learnt?

The beauty of Toe By Toe is that a tutor doesn’t have to be trained in any field of education to help someone to study with the book.

In fact, Toe By Toe often works better with non-professionals as tutors as they do not have any pre-conceived notions about teaching and so simply follow the very detailed instructions contained in the book to the letter.

The Toe By Toe VIP Club also has 25 FREE audio recordings trainers and students can access to help improve reading skills and accelerate learning times.

There is also a Phonic Test audio and PDF file members of the Toe By Toe VIP Club can access. The test is designed to evaluate a student’s phonetic knowledge. Students who struggle to pronounce the sounds of the test words correctly clearly indicates that they need particular coaching to improve their reading skills.

The PDF contains clear instructions on how to conduct and evaluate the test.

Toe By Toe Reading Age Test

We believe it is essential to complete a Reading Age Test before starting to study withToe By Toe. Because, without knowing a student’s reading age, how can you begin to evaluate progress?

By first establishing a student’s current reading age, the student, the tutor and the parents can all see the ‘starting point’ of the student and what they need to do to improve.

We re-test the Reading Age again on completing Toe By Toe  to measure the ‘before and after’ effect.

Most times everyone – but the student in particular – is astonished and delighted at the progress they make.

“At age 9 my daughter Kat couldn’t read due to dyslexia and hated lessons. She then spent 18 months completing Toe By Toe. It opened up a new world for her. She is now 17 years old and sitting her ‘A’ Levels (including English Literature) and has just received her 2nd university offer”

V.M. Grateful Parent – UK– Nov 2015


“Our son was lagging in class, lacking confidence and could not read properly. It caused us to change a couple of schools and my wife, who used to teach him for school, developed high blood pressure as it was SO stressful to teach him ANYTHING. Then I found Toe By Toe. The changes Toe By Toe has brought to my son’s life are tremendous and unbelievable. It is like magic. I expected results but not so soon and so huge. To summarize, I owe my current happiness and my child’s learning to read to Keda Cowling. I wish I could meet her and bow my head in respect in front of her, one day. My son always asks about her and wants to meet his teacher so much. Hats off to Keda Cowling! You are a Mother Teresa for dyslexics.”

Dr Unwar Aswan Medical doctor and parent, Pakistan

“As a grown man of 23, I can honestly say without Toe By Toe I don’t think I would have been able to overcome my dyslexia. Diagnosed as dyslexic at the age of 6, my mother was at her wits end with me until we started using Toe By Toe. Like many other reviews have stated, it took just a few minutes each day over a long time to take effect. By the age of 11 I had a reading age of an 18 year old. Now, I am studying a Masters in Cambridge. A real confidence booster! With a little bit of parental encouragement and a lot of patience it’s possible for anyone to overcome dyslexia”

Master Bishop (review of Toe By Toe on Amazon, May 2016)

“My son – now 13-years old – was tested by an Oxford professor 6 years ago for dyslexia. She recommended Toe By Toe and it saved my son’s education. The outcome is out of this world. My son now tops his set for English and I still cannot quite believe it. His primary school me told he would struggle just to keep up with the bottom percentage of children. If you have a gut feeling that your child is failing through the education system. That the teaching is not helping, then please buy Toe By Toe. My son is now a ‘Level 7’ student. I put it all down to this book.”
