He is now listening accurately at a level approximately three years above his chronological age and he listens for meaning almost five years above his chronological age. His spelling now tests at a 10.4 year level. [He] does not yet read fluently but he is now reading accurately at a level almost commensurate with his chronological age and he can now understand and remember what he has to read to a level comfortably above his chronological age. Numeracy skills also test as comfortably above his chronological age.”
