We Will Solve Your Child’s Reading Problem

Imagine what it must feel like to be a child with Down Syndrome who can’t read like the other kids in school. Not only do your grades suffer, you suffer emotionally. You feel humiliated like you’re not as good as the other kids. For a child it’s devastating, and for a parent it’s heartbreaking.

Over the past 35 years, The Dicker Reading Method has developed custom-tailored reading tutoring for special needs children and adults of all ability levels in Westchester, NY and beyond. We have had great success with students with our Special Needs Reading Tutoring for Children with Down Syndrome.

Do you notice your Special Needs child becoming unfocused and not able to concentrate while reading? Does your child become hyperactive or withdrawn while reading? Does your child become distracted or inattentive while reading? If your child displays these behaviors he or she is not reading comfortably, fluently and with enjoyment and understanding. This is what we address in our Special Needs Reading Tutoring Program. If your child makes other frequent mistakes such as:

  • Sounding words out
  • Substituting one word for another
  • Hesitating on words
  • Leaving off/Adding on endings
  • Not observing periods and commas
  • Not knowing the meanings of words

It is likely they are not achieving their true reading potential, The Dicker Reading Method can help your child become a focused, fluent, confident reader who can reach their full potential.

The Power of Our Special Needs Reading Tutoring Program

This unique Special Needs Reading Tutoring for Children with Down Syndrome system is so effective that it is possible for even a non-reading student with special needs to learn approximately 15–30 words in their first session, then go on to read their first book fluently. We have children with special needs in our program reading on elementary, middle school, and high school reading levels. Many children with special needs have done it, thanks to the Dicker Reading Method. We will work with you and your child to develop the best curriculum for their individual needs, so that, no matter where they started or what special help they need, your child can achieve their true reading potential.

Over 10,000 Success Stories

  • Nikki didn’t know how to read and lacked confidence and self-esteem, so we started him on our preschool/kindergarten reading program. After approximately a year and a half, he advanced to reading on a 5th grade reading level with mastering words, meanings of words, and comprehension. Nikki developed a love for reading and school! If you teach a child to read, you change their world! Watch Nikki’s story in the special needs video above.

    Al Dicker Founder of the Dicker Reading Method
  • “I’ve represented over 400,000 parents whose children attended the public schools throughout our city. I had a chance to see the amazing results. Children were actually learning to read for the first time. They actually were moving from I can’t to I can. I must say that if you or your child is having difficulty reading this is the program you should really look at because it could make all the difference for your child and your family.”

    Jean DePesa Former President Of The United Parents Association Of New York City
  • "The program is exceptional. It’s powerful. It’s efficient in what it does and it works. It makes the inability to read just another memory"
