Dicker Reading Method welcomes three siblings

Dec 28, 2009

Posted by: Elizabeth Reynaldos @ 8:30 pm

Christina, Brian, and Jimmy of Brooklyn, New York enrolled in the Dicker Reading Method program last month. Each of the siblings (ages 16, 13, and 8 years old) has already improved 2 grade levels! In each of the students’ first sessions, their reading struggle immediately disappeared and each student is now reading materials above their grade levels fluently. Thanks to the Dicker Reading Method, Jimmy, an 11th grader, tells us that he is going to ace his SATs in May! We, along with Mom, are excited to watch the progress Brian, Jimmy, and Christina make through the Dicker Reading Method, both in and out of the classroom.

Where are they now?

Darius – Former DRM Student, Current Student at RPI, Future Engineer
I just received this in the mail from a parent at the Dicker Reading Method.

Darius of the Bronx, NY , a former student at the Dicker Reading Method, was recently featured on the front page of his local newspaper for his academic accomplishments.

When Darius first came to the Dicker Reading Method when he was in the 7th grade, he had been labeled ADHD and was reading on a 4th grade level.  After 6 months in our program, Darius was reading on a 12th grade level.  Darius, who cites the Dicker Reading Method as the reason for his success, has recently gained admission to 9 of 11 of the nation’s top colleges (Carnegie Mellon, Harvard, MIT, Cornell, Princeton to name a few) and will be attending Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute to pursue a career in engineering.

We wish Darius continued success throughout college and in each of his future endeavors.

Alex of Portchester, NY was in the 1st grade when he came to us.  He knew about 17 words and was so hyperactive that he was taking Ridelin.  In the first session, I cut out the hyperactivity and he shifted internally from “I can’t” to “I can”.  He walked out reading the first pre-primer book of our series fluently.  Less than a year in the program, Alex was reading on a 6th grade level.  Now, Alex is in the 7th grade.  Had Alex not been in the program, his life would have been totally different.  I just heard from his mom that he took the test for Johns Hopkins and scored a 1200 on the SATs.

Meet Our Students: Ryan

Ryan from Mamaroneck, NY, age 7, was labeled with ADHD.  When he first came to us this summer, he knew less than 15 words. We cut out his hyperactivity and withdrawal in the first session and since then, Ryan has thrived.  His mother tells us that it there is no longer a struggle to get him to read.  After 6 months in the program, Ryan is now reading on a third grade level.

Isn’t it amazing what the Dicker Reading Method can do?
