Frequently Asked Questions
What does a typical day/lesson with this course look like?
The course is all teaching instruction to the parents both in the text and video. It is a program by which you teach your child to read. It is not a “magical” course by which you park your child in front of the computer, come back in a few days and “voila” they are reading.
Are any additional materials/purchases required?
Yes. You will need to buy Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons by Siegfried Englemann. It’s available used on Amazon for less than $6.00.
Does this course include teaching instructions and/or lesson plans?
Lesson plans vary according to the age and skill level of each child. We proceed in terms of steps rather than units.
Can I get samples?
We do not mail out free samples. You can, however, get a very good idea of the materials in this course by attending an online demonstration by Dr. Jones. He will show you the text and worksheets, as well as other reading and study materials from the kit. Please call us at: 817-718-8822.
How long does it typically take to complete this course?
It depends upon the age, skill level of the child, and the consistency with which the parent applies the program. Someone who does it 4 times daily will go more than twice as fast as some doing it twice a day. Once a day will work as long as you are regular. Dropping the ball is the worst thing you can do. In our online courses, we proceed through a set of graded readers up to 3rd grade level where they can participate in Reading Lab.
