This is a website for struggling readers, their parents, and teachers.
Are you or someone you love struggling with written language? Are you a teacher struggling to reach a child who seems intelligent, but isn’t picking up reading no matter what you try?
Carol S. Fitzpatrick is here to help. Her methods are research-based, effective, and classroom-tested in her own classes. (The results of her research are listed under “Carol’s Research” on the main menu.)
These are exciting times! Science has made significant breakthroughs in the diagnosis and treatment of reading disabilities, especially dyslexia*. It doesn’t have to be the disheartening, frustrating, invisible disability it was in the past. Instead of traveling through life as lonely exiles in the literate world, now people with dyslexia can learn to read fluently. Now their undeniable giftedness can be set free without the hidden shackles of poor reading skills holding them back.
This website is dedicated to bringing you:
- Research-based methods for teachers to use in regular classrooms, small groups, or one-on-one.
- Helpful hints for parents to use at home to encourage their struggling readers.
- Up-to-date information on research coming out of several major universities.
