The Power to Read Better
How is Reading Without Limits different than other programs?
Our proprietary testing and treatment will give you real answers and real results. Helping your child read better starts with uncovering the root cause of their difficulty.
Multiple skills are required for proficient reading. Those skills fall into three categories auditory, visual, and cognitive. Our program will isolate which of these factors are limiting reading ability and correct them using specific drills that improve reading performance quickly and easily. Each student treatment program is customized for their specific difficulties and for maximum results. Performance gains are carefully monitored and recorded monthly demonstrating real results. Most students in our program read at or above their grade level in about 3 months with more confidence and motivation.
By combining reading drills with vision processing drills (visual cross training), the Reading Without Limits program accelerates reading performance. Readers can instantly identify words, read faster, have better fluency, sustain attention, and achieve fuller comprehension.
Phonics Is Not For Everybody
Traditional reading programs use phonics (sound patterns) and sight reading (memorization) to teach reading. However, this method does not work for everyone, especially if your child has a problem with Auditory Processing. Auditory Processing is the ability to identify, organize, localize, sequence, and remember sound information. Children with normal auditory skills, that have not significantly improved their reading skills in 6 months, are likely to have problems with visual processing.
Visual Processing is not just about seeing clearly, but rather clearly understanding what is seen. It requires the ability to identify, organize, localize, sequence, and remember visual information. The Reading Without Limits method is unique and highly successful, because it relies on visual pattern recognition and not sound pattern recognition. By teaching readers to look for key letter patterns in words (word anchors), they are able to identify words with incredible speed and accuracy.
Our strategy out performs traditional reading programs. Phonics based approaches are less successful, because sound patterns are hard to remember, have confusing rules, and too many exceptions to the rules. Our visually based approach is more successful because it is simple to use, has easy to remember rules, and shows very few exception to the rules. Once a struggling reading learns visual pattern recognition strategies, their reading performance increases dramatically. In fact, most struggling readers can immediately read complex words above their grade level without any verbal cues.
Also, scientific research has shown that students with dyslexia respond very poorly to phonics based reading programs. The Reading Without Limits program can reverse dyslexia like no other program. See the Dyslexia tab for more information.
Four Phase in Office Evaluation
Uncovering which auditory, visual, and cognitive factors are interfering with reading ability requires a four phase evaluation. Phase one evaluates the eye’s ability to take in visual information. Phase two evaluates the eye’s ability to track properly and comprehend while reading. Phase three evaluates visual, auditory, and cognitive pattern recognition skills as they apply to word identification. Phase four evaluates the strength, stamina, flexibility, and endurance of the visual system to sustain reading activity. All four phases of testing requires 2 to 2.5 hours to complete and are generally not completed in one visit. Price for each phase is $150 or save $100 when purchased as a package. Payment plans available and some medical insurance coverage may apply. Call for more information and to schedule an appointment.
