While teaching at Averett, Dr. Tucker field-tested the concept of using hand signs to build letter-sound associations. She developed this concept over a number of years. It was an outgrowth of a variety of experiences studying American Sign Language, observing active young readers struggle with the reading process, and searching for ways to monitor more precisely how the minds of children work. The hand signs began to unlock the mystery of decoding unfamiliar words for non readers of all ages. Now, get a Tucker Signing Strategies for Reading manual WITH its very own DVD right inside the back cover. Just updated, this handy DVD shows Dr. Tucker demonstrating all 44 of the Tucker Signs, answering questions on the strategy, and interviews of people having successfully used the strategy. Ruby Payne says, I ve never seen a strategy with a faster learning transfer!

The students who participated in the Tucker sessions could read an average of 37 more words than they did prior to learning whereas the students without the Tucker sessions could read only 5 more words. --National Study, Indiana University, Bloomington
It is almost like you can physically see them (adult students) retrieve the sound from their brain with just a move of their hand. --Adult Literacy Coordinator, Spencer County, Indiana
Until yesterday my son could read only a few sight words. Then Dr. Tucker worked with him and he was reading the word shirt in five minutes. Two days ago he had no concept of decoding words like March or shower. What can I say? It s a miracle. --Mother of 17-year-old son with autism, Springdale, Arkansas
