Reading Fluency: A Unique Approach to Reading
Over 96% of students learn to read well and enjoy reading after an average of 15 hours on the Sound Reading System.
The Sound Reading Self-tutoring System goes to the heart of reading difficulties by activating the three areas of the brain that function so well in natural readers:
- Accuracy Areas - Natural readers hardly ever mispronounce words. Accuracy depends on a very well tuned sense of speech to interpret written words as spoken words. By focusing on auditory skills, phonemic awareness and reading fluency, Sound Reading will quickly have your child reading with astounding degrees of accuracy, even if he or she has struggled with phoneme processing or phonics in the past.
- Automatic Areas - Accurate reading that is labored rarely results in motivated and meaningful reading. Natural readers read automatically, as if someone is inside their head reading to them. Sound Reading’s Flash Fluency practice is the most effective reading fluency instruction available by teaching naming and oral recall.
- Sense-making Areas - The brain lacks a “reading comprehension” area so it relies on the half of the brain devoted to listening comprehension. Sound Reading utilizes activities that tightly link reading and listening comprehension, resulting in outstanding gains in understanding.
