Struggling Readers

Do you have a bright child who struggles to read? Is your child guessing at short, easy words, despite months or even years of reading practice?

If your child is guessing at words, you know how confusing and frustrating it can be. You want them to read, but instead every reading practice feels like you’re just spinning your wheels.

But here’s good news: there’s an easy solution to guessing.

How can you put an end to guessing?

Although there are many different causes of reading difficulty, the solution is fairly simple: You need to teach the child to decode, or sound out words. We make that process easy by using trainertext visual phonics (TVP).

TVP uses memorable characters to represent the different sounds, or phonemes, in the English language. These characters appear above letters to help children sound out words.

TVP makes learning to read fun, and it’s backed by years of research as seen in the Easyread TVP intervention. In no time at all, a struggling reader can stop guessing and start decoding words, even irregular ones. Or if you have a beginner, you can use the free stuff on this site to get them started off right.
