What did they have to say about Writing Made Simple?
This early writing system struck testers as to how effective it was with their own children. It was not just what and how they learned, but how excited they become about learning. When that kind of excitement exists about an educational product, parents take notice. They observed how their childrens' letter recognition increased dramatically, and the manner in which the instructions for helping children use the system properly in order to get the most out of the program. They noted that the directions were well written and easy to follow. The evaluators stated many times over how perfect the set was to take along to a restaurant, to allow the product to be pulled out and squeeze in some fun learning time.
