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
