Looking to Improve Reading Skills? Improve Fluency and Reading Comprehension

Reading Skills are low all over the country. In fact, the Nations Report Card states that 63% of 4th graders and 64% of 8th graders are not proficient in reading.

However, with the right reading program, reading skills can improve and you can change your child’s life.

Your child can overcome their learning reading problems whether they have dyslexia, an identified learning disability, are falling through the cracks, or are even gifted.

You know how painful it is to see your child struggle or take forever to read their assignments. Reading comprehension is hard. Reading fluency is almost non-existent. You just want to take that pain away. You so want to see your child read with ease. I’m here to tell you, reading doesn’t have to be so hard!

I’m Bonnie Terry, M. Ed., BCET and I’ve been teaching students of all ages (Kindergarten – adult) that struggle with reading skills. The struggles may be with reading fluency, reading comprehension, spelling, or writing. What I have found is that every student can learn, every student can improve their reading skills.

Over my years as a learning disabilities specialist and board certified educational therapist, I’ve worked with every type of reading problem, learning disability, and dyslexia imaginable. I have spent thousands of hours working with students in the classroom, with teachers, and with parents to develop solutions to reading problems. In fact, I’ve found that reading problems can be grouped into three broad categories, phonemic awareness/phonics, fluency and vocabulary/text comprehension.
