For Children Who Struggle with Reading:

A large percentage of creative and bright children struggle with reading. The more work reading is, the more reluctant the children become. Or maybe the problem is comprehension. What they read just doesn't stick!

We can help! Whether you have a kindergartener who is falling behind or an older child who is working too hard on reading, our right-brained teaching resources and tips will help your child be successful!

 
 

The answer for children who struggle lies in teaching children using materials that are uniquely designed using right-brained elements such as visuals, body movement, and stories. All the teaching resources on this site are designed to integrate left-brain content with right-brain functions so struggling children can be successful in learning.

How can I help my child learn and remember vowel sounds?

Because words are made of sounds, and every syllable of every word contains a vowel, helping children learn vowels so they can remember is crucial in helping a child be successful in reading. The answer for children who have trouble with vowels and other letter sounds is to use a right brain teaching method! If you embed the letters in a picture that is the same shape as the letter and also starts with the sound of the letter, children will be able to use their mental camera and their natural ability to remember visuals permanently. We have done this for you. Go there now!

 

Why is learning sight words important, and how can I help my child learn and remember them?

Sight words make up 80-90% of the words children will see in when reading, and if your child can recognize sight words instantly, reading will be easy. Most children who struggle to learn sight words are right-brained learners who cannot memorize words. Drilling does not help! Your child needs right-brained sight words embedded in visuals. SnapWords® are learned as quickly as a mental camera snapping a picture and placing it in long term memory. Because the picture shows the meaning of the word, comprehension follows. The body motion will make it easy for your active, kinesthetic learner to remember sight words. Get SnapWords!

  

Where can I find tools that will support my struggling reader?

Areas of trouble in reading include awareness of sounds in words, sounding out words, phonics rules, vocabulary, reading comprehension, and fluency. Most kids who struggle with reading are right-brained learners who do not learn the way we normally teach reading. Right-brained learners learn visually and hands-on, when they see the big picture, when they can learn whole words first, when they can discover patterns that exist in words, etc. The world of reading will open up for your struggling reader when you use materials that are designed especially with the right brain child in mind. Start today!

 

How do I know if my child is a right-brain learner?

50-60% of students are right-brained learners, but traditional teaching resources are designed for left-brained dominant learners. If your child is struggling to learn, the first thing to do is try a right-brained resource to measure its effectiveness. Right-brained learners include all children before the age of 7, those who are kinesthetic, visual, dyslexic, autistic, those with auditory processing disorder and so forth. When a child struggles and is tested, the learning weakness is identified and a label is assigned. If a child has the opportunity to learn from her strengths, often the label will never be assigned.
