i have 8 yr. old twins that have been having severe reading problems. i have tried many programs and worked with the school. nothing has helped and no one really cared. then i found rapid road to reading on the internet. i love, love this program!!! it really works and the tutors are the most caring ladies. they actually want the children to learn to read. the girls have went from reading 5-7 wpm at pre-primer level to 63 wpm at the second grade level in 21 hours.(just over the summer) i would highly recommend this program, they really will have the children on the road to reading-rapidly!!!!
