Review of Read Right, An Intervention Program for Struggling Readers
“If we are to obtain results never before achieved, we must expect to employ methods never before attempted.” (Sir Francis Bacon, b 1561; d 1626)
Read Right® is an innovative and highly effective reading intervention program that transforms struggling readers to excellent readers in a matter of months, not years. It is based on theoretical constructs that challenge mainstream thinking and are compatible with what is known about how the brain learns a process. The focus is on an implicit cognitive strategy of anticipating the author’s intended meaning as the foundation of excellent reading. Extraordinary results with struggling readers, including special education students (dyslexia, autism, ADD, ADHD) and English Language Learners reveal the promise of the new approach.
Because Read Right works so quickly to eliminate reading problems, students are well aware of their improvement, which translates into high student motivation to engage fully in the Read Right process. There has been extensive research and performance evaluation conducted to verify the effectiveness of the intervention model, all of which are available upon request from the company, Read Right Systems. www.readright.com.
Read Right has been widely implemented nationally in schools, and it is available for struggling readers everywhere because it can be delivered on-line in live, real time tutoring sessions by highly-trained tutors.

“Just wanted to write and let you know that I appreciate your program. My daughter’s lowest grade today is a ‘B’. My son has only been enrolled in Read Right for about 1 month and I can see improvements already. I’m very impressed. …He is more confident and actually excited about showing us his reading skills.” -A Parent of Native students, Cusick, Washington
“My son, Chase, started 4th grade a couple of weeks ago and went through all of the usual reading assessments. His teacher told me he came in third in the class…and first in comprehension! THANK YOU for all that you have done for my son to help him become an excellent reader and a confident student.” – Megan, mother of Chase, a Read Right graduate
“I love the Read Right program. I think schools would be amazed at how well it works. To see the children be functionally non-readers and move into sixth grade reading by the end of one year, what’s not to believe? What’s not to like about that?” – Mary Jo Witkowski-Smith, Director of Special Programs, 6-12
