There is no such thing as “one size fits all!”
The public schools offer many education programs for the Talented and Gifted and Special Education and everyone in-between. They are trying to serve every type of student, many who have very unique, very different learning styles. Instead of a perfect-for-you education we end up with a learning experience that doesn’t quite work for YOUR child.
This is especially true for those smart kids who are behind in reading skills and who don’t qualify for Special Ed.
The Reading Remedy set out to streamline the ‘finding help’ process especially for parents who are looking for help for their child outside of the classroom.
We can’t promise to make your child’s learning challenges go away.
We can promise to show you other ways for your child to learn using alternate learning methods that prove successful for the reluctant learner.
Think of The Reading Remedy as your personal teacher
addressing your child’s specific needs
“OK! Where Do We Begin?”
(answer these questions to learn how to best use this website):
Has your child already been evaluated and now you are looking for a program to address the learning problems identified through testing? We can help with this! Scroll down the page to SOLUTION: ONLINE THERAPY.
Are you looking for a reading tutor? If your child has fallen behind in school and you are pretty sure that they are just needing a bit of extra help to catch up, a reading tutor may be the best course. Scroll down the page to THERE’S A TUTOR IN MY COMPUTER to learn about our reading tutor.
Is your smart child not reading at grade level and you want to find out why? We can help with this! Continue reading down this page and we’ll explain the process that provides your child the help they need.
Is it a Learning Disorder or is Your Child Just a Slow Reader?
There are many reasons why a child falls behind in school. Not connecting with the teacher, having disruptive kids in the classroom, illness, divorce, (fill in the blank).
Sometimes, a child falls behind in school and they would be best served with a reading tutor to get them back on track.
In other cases, your child may be one of the 11 million kids who processes written and spoken words differently than their classmates, making it a challenge to succeed in school.
We need to know which group your child belongs so that we can proceed.
To begin, we use a Learning Quiz that lists 20 classic descriptions of the learning behavior of kids who have been tested and identified as having a learning disorder.
The Learning QUIZ answers that first, fundamental question: Does my child have a learning disorder or did they just fall behind in their studies and need extra help?

Did the Learning QUIZ show there’s a possible learning problem?
Let’s find out more about this!
Did you know that research shows that for every year a child under-performs in school they can fall 2 years behind in their studies? Many schools can take most of an entire school year to test and implement a remedial program. By that time, an irreparable break in your child’s progress has taken place.
In order to understand how best to teach your child we have to know what the problem is.
There’s no real way around this. A medical doctor would insist on knowing what the problem is before a prescription is written to treat it.
Education is no different. Targeted therapy must address the most persistent and most obvious skill sets that need improving. In medicine and in education, “diagnosis” is king of the hill if we want to treat the problem successfully.
The Learning ASSESSMENTS give you a clear idea if one of the most common READING AND LEARNING DISORDERS is causing problems in school, at home or socially.

What exactly they test for and what the final scores means
Begin the ASSESSMENTS
Assessments strive to identify the weaknesses (and strengths!) of how a child learns. And then, RIGHT OR WRONG we put a name on it. We now have a “label” that describes how the child processes the written and spoken word.
The boxes below identify the names of the learning disorders we see 80% of the time in school. If your child does have a learning disorder the chances are high that it will be identified when taking these Assessments.
In 45 short minutes you’ll have the answer needed to
find the reading program that teaches reading skills is a way your child understands.

This online reading program is an excellent starting point for the smart child who needs a little extra help catching up in reading skills.
It is especially helpful for parents who are not ready to jump in to a more advanced therapy program at this time.
The Reading Buddy works with your child at home to increase reading fluency, reading speed and comprehension. Studies show that reading fluency and comprehension are increased 50% when using Reading Buddy’s Speech Recognition Software and Guided Repeated Reading.
There is also help for the Spanish speaking student. Difficult English words can be heard in Spanish to give the student a reference point in their native language, encouraging comprehension.
This is technology at it’s best!
Remember, the most important step is to FOLLOW THROUGH and actually set up the program and have your child begin the training.
