How We Help Children Differently
Doing the same thing again and again, while expecting a different result, was cited by Einstein as a sign of madness. So is "just doing more reading" once progress has stopped. We call it the Optilexic Plateau.
But have a look at our 8 simple reasons why children struggle to read and spell. You might find some are familiar. You can also try our 5-Minute Analysis of your child's reading and spelling patterns.
We tackle the underlying causes of difficulty, with a short, fun and easy lesson on the Internet each day on our process. It only takes 5-15 minutes. Try a lesson with your child today.
Endless spelling practice often fails to get any real progress. It can be like pushing water up a hill. The words memorised this week are gone by next week.
The way to make spelling easier is through changing how someone reads. Parents often say "but my child reads really well". Yes, but the issue is how the child is reading. If your child is recognising whole words to read, spelling will always be very hard (except possibly for spelling tests).
We offer an unconditional guarantee that you will see clear changes after 90 lessons. I don't think you will find any other system that will deliver the personal support we do and offer to refund every penny that you have paid in the last three months after 90 lessons.
To see the science behind Easyread, have a look at the manuscript to our book. Our approach is based on phonics, but we slide the phonetic knowledge in through practice, not by trying to "teach" it. We call it Guided Phonetic Reading, which is based on our unique Trainertext® System.
The effectiveness of our approach has been independently evaluated.
You will see that I struggled with reading myself and so did my sons (who both got straight A grades at 16). I know how it feels when traditional approaches have gone badly! It can be traumatic. But we routinely see that turned around, as you can see in our testimonials. You can talk to a local Easyread parent if that would be helpful
Just call us during UK office hours to talk to us about any aspect of it. This stuff can be complex and seem baffling, but there is really almost nothing we haven't seen before and we are here to help.
