Course Description

SuperReading is a course which increases reading comprehension, accuracy, speed and retention. This comprehensive course covers everything from proper reading basics to advanced techniques. Our patented Eye-Hop exercises bring readers from reading one or two words per glance (fixation) to five to eight words! This is one of the reasons SuperReading is so effective for dyslexic readers.
The course also includes study techniques like Mapping, Vocabulary and Spelling strategies, The Mental Game, Goals, How to Focus, How to Learn and more.
We include ways to test yourself to measure your progress. This course is taught in more than two dozen universities and has been the subject of two studies published in educational journals. SuperReading has been taught at companies like Apple Computer, Sony, HP, IBM, Compaq, Cisco, Philips and many more.
You are guaranteed to at least double your present reading abilities, taking into account speed, comprehension and retention.

What are the requirements?

  • Being able to read at a Year 4 level or higher
  • Being able to see. Poor uncorrected vision slows down reading.

What am I going to get from this course?

  • To at least double your reading abilities (speed, comprehension & recall)
  • To love the act of reading
  • To save time. Average employees save a day a week (8 hours)
  • For students, to remove the stress from study, with a special section on handling textbooks.

What is the target audience?

  • Students
  • Professionals
  • Dyslexic readers
  • Pleasure readers
  • Attorneys
