It’s easy to forget that “learning to read” is not the same as “reading comprehension.” By “learning to read”, most parents mean that their child is decoding words. “Reading comprehension” requires understanding, which comes after learning how to interact with the text. Reading comprehension skills increase the pleasure and effectiveness of reading. Strong reading comprehension skills and strong math skills help in all the other subjects and in the personal and professional lives. The high stake tests that control advancement through elementary, middle, and high school and that determine entrance to college are in large parts, a measure of reading comprehension skills and math. And while there are test preparation courses which will provide a few short-cuts to improve test-taking strategies, these standardized tests tend to be very effective in measuring readers reading comprehension skills and advancing in math skills. Building reading comprehension skills requires a long term strategy in which all the reading skills areas (phonics, fluency, vocabulary) and progressing in math skills will contribute to success. Our program is available throughout the year providing the best luxury for parents to advance their children in their reading and math skills.
