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.
