Reading Comprehension Training
GREAT Readers are PURPOSEFUL. They consistently interact with text.
SKILLED readers are NEVER PASSIVE. Instead, they are HIGHLY ACTIVE as they read; creating visual images, wondering, and evaluating as they read. Less skilled readers, however, simply move their eyes over the text without processing what they are reading.
Our outcome-based training offers a passive reader the chance to connect with the written word and engage actively with text securing the foundation of becoming a solid reader.

Handwriting Still Matters
If your child has to stop and think about how the print or cursive alphabet looks each time when writing a word or sentence, then handwriting is not automatic and interferes with fluency process of thinking. It slows kids down in the classroom when they cannot write legibly and automatically. If you child starts his/her letters from the bottom up, confuses letters when he/she writes or writes too slowly or quickly that handwriting is illegible, then it is time to bolster handwriting skills with consistent training and practice.
