NSW, June 1995
“I first met Rosemary Boon in February 1994. I had spent much time, effort and money searching for an answer to my daughter’s literacy and self esteem problems. In Rosemary Boon I found an answer to my prayers and relief to my growing anxiety.
Initially I was impressed by Rosemary’s professionalism and competency. Over the last 19 months these first impressions have manifested themselves in remarkable improvements in my daughter. Rosemary worked with my daughter on a weekly basis, providing one hour of individual remediation. Half way through the program my family had to move to the Central Coast, some 100km from Ms Boon’s clinic. Rather than have my daughter referred to a more convenient educational psychologist, I chose to travel the significant distance because of the quality of the tuition I knew Rosemary was providing.
The improvement in my daughter means that she is no longer required to see Rosemary. In the space of
1.4 chronological years my daughter, who is now 9.7 years of age, improved as follows
|South Australian Test of Spelling||6.3 years||10.10 years|
|Neale Reading Analysis|
|- accuracy||6.9 years||8.6 years|
|- comprehension||7.5 years||10.1 years|
|LAC Test||Raw Score 49||Raw Score 100 (+6)|
|Woodcock Reading Mastery Test|
|- visual auditory learning||Grade 1||Tertiary|
|- word identification||Grade 1||Grade 3|
|- word attack||Grade 1||Grade 6|
|- passage comprehension||Grade 2||Grade 4|
At a personal level Rosemary displays many admirable qualities. She is a dedicated and industrious person who exudes vitality for her work. As a mother Rosemary is able to appreciate and relate to the very real concerns of her many clients who are also mothers.
