The world of words is a great place, but we all have needed reading help. Those marks on paper can be frustrating and embarrassing if we don't know what they mean. Sometimes it is more than just inconvenient. It can be dangerous if, for example, a person cannot correctly read the instructions on a medicine bottle. And, let's face it, there was a time when all of us were in the dark. For some of us the light was turned on early as we received the reading help we needed. For others it has been a lifetime struggle with those mysterious lines and swirls.
Reading, unlike spoken language, is a learned skilled. Those who are older and need reading help now are no less intelligent that those who no longer need reading instruction. The vast majority of times the only difference is in the method used to teach the skill. [It is possible that the whole word method was originally introduced to purposely slow down the reading process.] Everyone who can speak can learn to read. The phonetic approach of the Academic Associate program has proven very effective with providing reading help to those who are still struggling. Students are led through all the phonetic rules one small step at a time. Patient repetition and reenforcement aid even those who struggle the hardest and feel it cannot be. Faces radiate with excitement as they discover that, yes, they too can read. We should all be on the same page!
