Hello Shelley,

Unfortunately, as with the medications, there is no cut and dried answer: Kumon works very well for some children and not as well for others. My advice would be to have a comprehensive reading assessment done to determine where his difficulty lies - auditory or visual processing; missing foundations etc.

Kind regards,
Delia
