The ability to pick up a book and get lost in it is a real treat for many people, but for too many others, this pleasure is unreachable. In addition to not being able to read for pleasure, many adults struggle to read well enough to earn a trade or advance in their profession. Dicker Reading programs can help adults of any age improve their reading skills.
To Overcome The Discomposure
For children who don’t learn to read early, school becomes an exercise in frustration and probable self-consciousness. These children may feel left out of the learning process and spend their lives resenting school and education in general.

Personal and Professional
The Dicker Reading program was developed by someone who loved to learn but struggled to read. The method was created by Al Dicker, and he took his experience with reading struggles and became a special education teacher. Now retired from the New York City school system, Al has opened private tutoring facilities in upstate New York.
You Can Do This!
Becoming a better reader will open a new world to you. The process of reading allows you to take other people’s stories and read them through the lens of your own experiences. Whether you’d like to gain additional education for your chosen profession, start a whole new career or simply enjoy the profound pleasure of reading for fun and relaxation, our program can help.
The first few years of school simply focus on the child’s ability to learn to read. After that, the students need to read in order to learn. For children who don’t make this switch, school becomes an exercise in frustration and, for some, embarrassment. You can overcome this history of struggle. Remember, you can do this and we are there to help you! To speak to us directly or know more about the program, Contact us today!
