Children’s Comments – About Reading

Writing looks smudgy as if a rubber has been over it. Any noise – distraction – I loose everything.
 – Trudie

I don’t always know where I am. It’s like a light going on and off and like on a rope swing going from side to side.
 – Donna

The words close up. I put my hand over the top of the page to stop the words wandering.
 – Gavin

The words and my eyes go blurry, it gets darker and darker.
 – Michelle

If its a hard word (need to look at it longer) the letters go rough.
 – Thomas

It feels like all the words are mixed up. Words and pictures change places.
 – Leighann

It just gets me mad. I feel like chucking the book.
 – Ryan

Can I go away I don’t like looking at these. If I look through turquoise its black and there’s no white to look at and flicker but it doesn’t take all the rivers away.
 – Theresa

The white goes darker. There are lots of colours all across the page. Purple pink goes across the page and green and yellow sometimes.
 – Paul

The words move and then there are just squiggly lines.
 – Hayley

Sometimes when you look at it, it sort of moves a touch and then goes back where it starts.” “It looks as if the page isn’t big enough and they have squashed it all up.
 – Nathan

Writing moves across the page. Looking at this page all the squares went all around the page and the writing went funny like black lines.
 – Gary

When I’m looking at the word it kind of jumps. I see colours on the white spaces.
 – Leanne

Its like a double image with one letter running into another and shimmering.
 – Jackie

My eyes go dizzy”
 – Penny

Sometimes I can’t see the lines at all.

The lines move about.
