When I started working with Les he could only read the odd word or two. He thought it was too late in life to try and learn to read. We met a couple of times a week never missing a session and he steadily progressed. His friends began to notice that he didn’t automatically ask them to read something for him because he tried to do it himself. He is very pleased that he has been able to do it. We continue to meet regularly and if we look back at the earlier books in the reading scheme he realises how far he has come and how well he has done.
