Reading Programs
 

Our Reading programs are comprehensive, evidence based software solution for reading assessment and
improvement that develops foundational fluency skills for students of all ages. It is the result of over
70 years of research and development in the area of reading improvement technology. We addresses all the elements of reading cited by the National Reading Panel including:

  • Phonemic Awareness
  • Phonics
  • Vocabulary
  • Reading Fluency
  • Comprehension

Who Is It For ?
Appropriate for students in grade levels K through college and adults who are struggling with reading proficiency.

What Does It Do ?
Our programs makes reading comfortable, productive and enjoyable. By addressing the foundational silent reading fluency skills required for students to become proficient, flexible readers, we prepare students of all ages with the essential skills they need for academic and vocational success.

Why Does It Work ?
While developing essential vocabulary, analytical reading and comprehension skills, it is the fluency building activities that make the system unique and successful. The system has been designed to assess and develop visual, perceptual and cognitive skills that are essential for fluent silent reading at adequate rates with excellent comprehension.

These skills are subliminal, and involve over 15 high speed visual and perceptual processes that interact from 3 to 5 times per second as the reader's eyes move along lines of print. Since these processes are subliminal, they cannot be directed by the teacher, nor controlled by a student. If students cannot perceive words accurately in a fraction of their usual eye pause time, they will inadvertently make multiple eye-stops to recognize each word. This delayed word recognition encourages visual wandering which consequently
reduces comprehension. The silent reading fluency skills developed improve short term memory, literal understanding and the rate at which students can read comfortably with excellent comprehension.
