3 Generations of My Family Benefitted from the Dicker Reading Method!

A grandmother of a present client (and mother and wife of past clients) reflects on her experiences with the Dicker Reading Method over the past 30 years:

Three generations of my family have benefited from the Dicker Reading Method….I think it’s a miracle program!

In first grade my youngest daughter was having great difficulty in reading and phonics and lagged far behind her class. We kept hoping she would “catch up”, but she didn’t. When she started 2nd grade she was unable to read and was very unhappy in school. After only eleven months in the Dicker Reading Method, she was reading fluently on a 4th grade level, and from there she went on to constant academic success. In her junior year in high school the play she wrote was chosen out of more than 1000 entries to receive the NYC “Young Playwright’s Award”. She finished high school in the top 10 of her class, graduated college with honors and completed her Master of Fine Arts degree. Most recently she has achieved national and international recognition in her field. There is no way she could have done any of this without this phenomenal program! I would highly, highly recommend this program for any child who is having difficulty reading.

This amazing reading program also taught my husband to read as an adult. A few years after my daughter finished the Dicker Reading program, my husband decided to that it was time to do something about his own poor reading, which he had struggled with his entire life. He was left back in elementary school and became the class clown. Going into the business world was no easier. He dreaded having to read anything, particularly in public. With the Dicker Reading Method, he moved up five grade levels in just one month. Had he been in the Dicker Reading Method as a child, his life would have been totally different.

And now we get to the third generation of Dicker Reading Method students in my family. My 5 year old granddaughter in kindergarten is reading on a 2nd grade level with the support of the Dicker Reading Method. The progress she has made in just a few months, from not being able to read anything to reading short stories, is fantastic. She has so much fun and loves to read! The Dicker Reading Method has opened up new doors for her—she’s very confident and is now also spelling and writing!”

As a wife, mother and grandmother I can say from experience that this program is absolutely amazing. I am so grateful every day that this program was available to my family.

Student labeled “Hyperactive” no longer shows signs of ADHD

Just one week before Karen’s first session at the Dicker Reading Method, Karen’s mother was told by the Board of Education that her 7-year-old daughter was “hyperactive” and “showed signs of ADHD.”  Her daughter’s first grade teacher told her that her child was “difficult and immature”–and even suggested that Karen repeat the first grade.  Karen’s mom also tells us that prior to her first session with Al and the tutors, her 2nd grader was having difficulty reading; making easy mistakes often and not reading fluently.  During the first session, Karen’s mom observed her daughter as she read fluently and confidently.  After just one session,Karen became interested in reading and focused as she read!  Today, less than one month since her first session, Karen is no longer considered “hyperactive”; nor does she show any signs of ADHD–all thanks to the Dicker Reading Method.  The Dicker Reading Method promises to cut out any child’s hyperactivity or withdrawal in the first session–and it does!

If your child has been labeled as “hyperactive” or “withdrawn”, contact us at the Dicker Reading Method to learn more about your child can become a more focused, confident reader.

Dicker Reading Method welcomes three siblings

Christina, Brian, and Jimmy of Brooklyn, New York enrolled in the Dicker Reading Method program last month. Each of the siblings (ages 16, 13, and 8 years old) has already improved 2 grade levels! In each of the students’ first sessions, their reading struggle immediately disappeared and each student is now reading materials above their grade levels fluently. Thanks to the Dicker Reading Method, Jimmy, an 11th grader, tells us that he is going to ace his SATs in May! We, along with Mom, are excited to watch the progress Brian, Jimmy, and Christina make through the Dicker Reading Method, both in and out of the classroom.

When first came to the Dicker Reading Method, Owen was reading on a 1st grade level. In less than a month, he has advanced two grade levels and is now reading stories on a third grade level. Not only is he just reading the stories, but he is doing a great job in understanding what he reads through our comprehension program. Great job, Owen!
