Reading Comprehension Gains of 3 Years with Newly Released ReadingFish Home Training Kit

April 10, 2006 (PRLEAP.COM) Education News
Englewood, Colorado—Just released by the Colorado Reading Center, the ReadingFish Home Training Kit, shows average gains of three years for students struggling with reading comprehension.

ReadingFish is a highly effective reading and listening comprehension remediation program. This is the first program to integrate and sequentially apply three types of instructional practice identified by independent research as effective at improving reading comprehension. ReadingFish includes a highly structured visual imagery program, cognitive skills training and strategy instruction.

While the program applies the latest instructional research, even parents unfamiliar with teaching skills can be successful with their child. A thorough manual and DVD video instruction for the parent assure easy administration of the program. If additional questions arise, phone support is included.

Students are surprised by the variety of the tasks and enjoy the cognitive training exercises. Most of the activities have little resemblance to classroom instruction. Since the program typically takes only 35 hours, students see the changes over just weeks.
