    We have used Apples & Pears for quite a few years, first with my daughter, now my son. It has been absolutely brilliant. For my daughter, we completed book A and B, and started C, before her spelling really took off, so we stopped using it. For my son, we have used books A, B, C and D. He is now 10 and has been assessed as dyslexic. He always struggled with spelling, and even from a very young age, was unable to use phonics to decode words, seemingly learning to read by either memorising whole words, or working out the word from the context. This strategy was fine for his reading, but spelling has been a real challenge. It was getting to the stage where he was actively avoiding writing very much at school, for fear of not being able to spell words. The breaking of words into morphemes and the repetition offered by completing one section of Apples and Pears each evening has made a real difference to his spelling confidence, reinforcing the spelling rules learns at school, but giving him extra practice at home. The sessions are just the right length for him to tackle, and he enjoys the variety of little puzzles that crop up, such as word searches or crosswords. The mastery tests give him something to aim for and make him (and us!) feel proud of how far he has come.
    Over the years I have recommended this series to a number of other parents with children who are struggling with spellings – and I shall continue to do so!
    Many thanks
