It's shocking but true. Forty percent of children experience significant difficulty in learning how to read. But it doesn't have to be that way. In this groundbreaking new book, internationally recognized developmental psychologist and educator Dr. Marion Blank explains why current reading education is failing our children. She goes on to describe her revolutionary new reading system, Phonics Plus Five, which is based on her forty plus years of experience in teaching children from all backgrounds to read. "The Reading Remedy" offers step-by-step instructions, reproducible forms, and mini-books that parents can start using right away to implement Dr. Blank's system.
