People often wonder how the parents who come to my reading seminars managed to teach their young babies and toddlers to read within 3 to 6 months. Children with dyslexia also managed to learn to read with enthusiasm.
As a young mother, I did not know much about the different methods to teach babies to read. But when Old Boy was three months' old, I traveled with him to the US and attended a seminar. There, I learned how to teach him to read. The key in any program for babies and young children is that it must be fun and entertaining.
When he was 18 months' old, Old Boy could point out words on shopping bags and read them. I was shocked, but I didn't think much of that. Maybe it was just luck.
I thought it was also luck when Sunshine Boy could read the speech bubbles on Captain Underpants comic books when he was 3. Perhaps it was luck again when both Daughter Who and Sunshine Boy finished reading the Chronicles of Narnia at four.
But when Youngest One could not read at 7.5 years old, I knew it was not luck: it was because I was lazy or had no time to do the 'reading things' with him. He was subsequently suspected of dyslexia.
I often wonder, if I didn't help the older four kids with the methods I chanced upon when my oldest child was just three months old, would all of them be labeled dyslexic. In fact, had I not pro-actively teach them to read so young, would they have excelled academically. Or would they have loved books or the written word so much.
When Youngest One started Primary School, I deployed what I had learned and taught him how to read within six months. Today, he is 15 and will graduate with a Bachelor degree when he turns 16.
Over the last few years, I have developed a program and helped thousands of parents with young children to read. From babies to older children diagnosed with dyslexia, this whole word recognition program works as long as parents are willing to spend 5 to 10 minutes a day, and nurture the love of books. There is really no need for expensive reading classes that are expensive and often counter productive.
The gift of reading is important, and if the child reads early, it is almost guaranteed they will do well in school. Time and again, parents would come up to me and report how their babies have grown up and now in the gifted program. There is no need for exorbitant tuition or enrichment classes.
I hope very much to impart this knowledge to parents who want to learn how to teach their own children. If you are diligent about this, it will only take you 2 days to learn from me, and then 3 to 6 months to work with your child. You will then have a happy, confident and competent reader at home. Once they can read, they will figure out the phonics and phonetics, it always works.
I have set aside 2 days to do this with parents who want to teach their children in the most efficient ways, but this seminar will only happen if there are enough participants. There is a 50% discount now for those who will sign up early so that we can plan and book our venue. Once this seminar is confirmed, the discount will be removed.
Please sign up if you are interested to gift a gift of reading to your child, and this seminar is meant for parents whose children cannot read yet, or have a disability to learn to read. Change the child’s future!
