This recording will present a lively and innovative approach to help students who read below grade level, have difficulty writing, and are terrible spellers.

  • Invigorate reading instruction
  • Improve reading comprehension
  • Increase focus and flexibility for ADHD
  • Implement time-efficient, independent homework and study skills
