9780071455107: Read Right: Coaching Your Child to Excellence in Reading

"We have parents with kids in college now who know their kids probably wouldn't be there if it wasn't for Read Right. I am definitely an advocate."
--Melinda Reeves, 2004 Texas High School Principal of the Year

Dr. Dee Tadlock's patented Read Right program has helped more than 20,000 struggling readers become excellent readers. Supported by 25 years of research, the revolutionary approach addresses both conscious and subconscious aspects of reading and offers you the most efficient and effective ways to help children learn. The three keys to becoming an excellent reader:

  • An appropriate concept of excellence (reading that makes sense, feels comfortable, and sounds
  • natural)
  • Strong intent (unwavering desire to read with excellence)
  • Predictive strategies (use of the brain's amazing anticipatory systems to construct reading ability)

A revolutionary alternative to outdated phonicsbased or whole-language methods, this complete interactive system includes:

  • Simple step-by-step coaching techniques to use with children
  • A list of age-appropriate reading materials suitable to early reading development
  • How to spot and address the real barriers to reading development

From the Back Cover:

The first book for parents based on the highly successful Read Right® program

According to the latest breakthroughs in cognitive theory and brain research, excellent reading ability doesn’t involve a set of “taught” skills. It’s a complex process that must be “figured out” by every reader. Scientifically documented as early as the 1960s, preschool-age children with a wide range of IQs are capable of figuring out the complex process for themselves. This stunning reality forms the basis of Dr. Dee Tadlock’s innovative Read Right® system.

This remarkable system provides the basis for simple techniques to help parents guide young children into their own reading excellence. There are no drills or artificial exercises—just fun, easy activities designed to be integrated into everyday life. Based on nearly twenty-five years of research, the Read Right® system is a proven alternative to outdated and incomplete phonics-based or whole-language methods. Most important, this interactive system can teach anyone, even adults, how to “figure out” the process of reading.

The Read Right® system’s three keys are:

  • Excellence: reading that feels comfortable and sounds natural
  • Intent: applying “mental force” until the brain achieves excellence
  • The Predictive Strategy: using experimentation to figure out the complex process

Includes recommended books for children and reference sources for parents
