Read Right Methodology is a Game-Changer

Each of the photos on this page is a link to a video from these educators. Click on the photos to hear what they have to say about Read Right methodology.

Read Right immerses struggling readers in reading activities plus the right kind of coaching and guidance to help individuals figure out all of the complex aspects of the reading process.

For individuals with mild to severe reading problems (including dyslexia), Read Right methodology offers a significantly new approach.

  • Read Right focuses on complex cognitive processing, essential for reading excellence: When struggling readers implicitly begin to focus on the construction of meaning each and every time they read rather than focus on single words in isolation, they begin to "remodel" how they read for the specific purpose of comprehension. This is an important key to the success of Read Right methodology.
     
  • Read Right compels struggling readers to figure out all of the implicit aspects of the reading process: Excellent readers implicitly (below the level of conscious awareness) use more than alphabetic clues to read excellently. They implicitly integrate phonetic clues with pre-existing knowledge of the subject matter, pre-existing knowledge of language and its structure, knowledge of punctuation, and more as they seek to answer the question: What does the text say? Read Right methodology creates the right kind of environment to help struggling readers make new discoveries about what works to produce reading excellence. This work cannot be explicitly taught. Struggling readers must have appropriate and precise guidance that helps them figure it out for themselves, at the level of their own neural processing.  

We invite you to spend a little time hearing from educators, parents, and students on the success they've observed with Read Right methodology. Click on the photos on this page or visit our Video Library to choose from dozens of testimonial videos. No one was paid for their participation. Everyone in these videos participated because Read Right works and they want you to know about it.   

"Read Right" is not a product, per se. You cannot purchase it on the shelf and take it home to try. Read Right is a comprehensive tutoring system available for use by schools, colleges, and adult literacy programs or available to individual consumers via Online Tutoring.  We provide intensive training in the methodology to program sites or online tutoring directly for individual clients.

Read Right methodology is evidence-based, integrating scientific information from reading theory, learning theory, language acquisition theory, cognitive psychology, neural development, and more into a complete and cohesive view of what is required to achieve efficient and effective reading ability. It works because it goes beyond the words on the page, considering instead all that is required for every reader to construct efficient and effective neural networks to guide the process of reading. Read Right helps students move from struggling with simplistic reading skills to efficient complex cognitive processing focused on the construction of meaning.

Thirty years in development, this comprehensive view has been translated into:

1) An effective approach for early reading development and children birth to Grade 1 (the book Read Right! Coaching Your Child to Excellence in Reading by Dee Tadlock, Ph.D., publisher: McGraw-Hill).

2) A well-defined system of instruction for K-2 classrooms (the Read Right Primary Core Curriculum).

3) A highly structured small-group reading intervention program for all ages (the Read Right Reading Intervention Program for Grades 3-12, colleges, and adult literacy programs).

4) And, introduced in 2011, the Read Right Online Tutoring Service, making Read Right tutoring available to everyone virtually everywhere. We currently tutor clients in the United States (west coast, east coast, central time-zone, Alaska, and Hawaii), Australia, and Canada. We can tutor in English in virtually any time zone, schedule permitting.
