Real Patients, Real Results

Happy Asian girl reading story book on the bed

I was honestly at a standstill with my son. We were at kindergarten reading levels even though he is in 2nd grade. His dyslexia was frustrating for him. Watching my child struggle created so much anxiety for the whole family. I didn't know what to do. A friend told me to see Dr. Bloch. I thought what I have to lose at this point. Dr Bloch has changed my son's life. Within one month he is bringing me chapter books to read. Word recognition, fluency, reading speed, and confidence have improved 100% from where we started. It is an amazing program!

Reading fluently is highly dependent on two essential skills, quick word recognition and precision visual tracking.  It is important to know that 95% of people with reading and learning disabilities have visual tracking problems.  The following graphs show the visual tracking results of patients with reading disabilities before and after eye movement training. In each case, visual tracking skills improve significantly in just a few months with excellent eye coordination and increased reading speed. Performance results are typical of patients completing the program and exceed expected grade level norms. All of these students had some level of word recognition training which contributed to gains.
 
Average reading Speed for High School Graduate is 250 words per minute, Average reading speed for college graduate is 350 words per minute.
