Just one week before Karen’s first session at the Dicker Reading Method, Karen’s mother was told by the Board of Education that her 7-year-old daughter was “hyperactive” and “showed signs of ADHD.” Her daughter’s first-grade teacher told her that her child was “difficult and immature”–and even suggested that Karen repeats the first grade. Karen’s mom also tells us that prior to her first session with Al and the tutors, her 2nd grader was having difficulty reading; making easy mistakes often and not reading fluently. During the first session, Karen’s mom observed her daughter as she read fluently and confidently. After just one session, Karen became interested in reading and focused as she read! Today, less than one month since her first session, Karen is no longer considered “hyperactive”; nor does she show any signs of ADHD–all thanks to the Dicker Reading Method. The Dicker Reading Method promises to cut out any child’s hyperactivity or withdrawal in the first session–and it does!
If your child has been labeled as “hyperactive” or “withdrawn”, contact us at the Dicker Reading Method to learn more about your child can become a more focused, confident reader.
