Before anyone freaks out! I am putting this resource out there for parents who are struggling with teaching their children to read. I know it is not in-and-of-itself technology, but this was an example I stumbled across that is testament to the capabilities of the internet and technology. The gentleman that provides this service used it on his own 4 children, and is actually a Reading Teacher as well. He even taught his 4 children how to read before they were even 3 years old. The video is of course FREE to watch, so no harm no foul right? I watched the entire introductory video myself, and wish that my parents would have had this for me. My parents actually had me go to a doctor to check for mental issues because I had such a difficult time learning to read when I was a child.
This program claims to be able to coach parents on how to help their child learn to read in 12 weeks, and you can find comfort in the fact that this gentleman is a professional reading teacher, and that he used this technique on his own children.
