Pumpkin has had all the skills necessary for reading for the past 1 1/2 years…but she hasn’t wanted to learn to read. Knowing that there are no long term advantages to reading before age 7 I decided to not push it. But I will admit it was getting harder and harder to remain nonchalant about her disinterest in learning to read.

Using the photo-copied manipulative cards I began to teach Pumpkin SPELLING, since she didn’t want to learn how to read. This is not what the book recommended you say, but it worked for us. Other than that I followed the instructions per the book and we began with the lessons in Chapter 3.
Here is a video clip from our very first lesson (filmed on November 9, 2010). As you can see she was blending and reading in 1 lesson!
If you are struggling with a reluctant reader I highly recommend this program. I apologize for not posting this sooner but it has been a year of disruptions for us to say the least.
Better late (sharing a resource) than never!
Would the program be good for children who have special needs?

I don't know what type of special needs you are referring to, but I believe it would. The book does address this a bit in the beginning.
