Many parents have asked me, “Is there a way that I can learn to teach my child how to read by myself?” This is a valid question since we know that 67% of graduating high school seniors read below the level of proficient. Clearly, public schools are not doing the job. Additionally, a private reading therapist will cost approximately $75.00 per hour with a minimum of two hours per week. What is a working parent to do when they cannot afford $600.00 per month? Well, the answer is found in our Parent Training Course and our Remediation Center Courses, each of which houses that houses The English Code Language Training System.
The English Code Language Training System, our premiere language training system that incorporates auditory, visual, and tactile-kinesthetic instruction with highly interactive, digital content, places students in position to master the eighty-five percent of the English code that is phonetic. Further, and most importantly, it allows English language learners to make intelligent choices towards mastering the remaining fifteen percent of the English code that must be analyzed in order to be applied properly.
While not your traditional learning management system where the data is managed, compiled, and analyzed for you, we provide the data management documents in PDF so that parents have some “skin” in the game. Our system is designed to encourage parents to look “behind the curtain” of the reading science and develop a clearer understanding of the needs of their children. This, however, does not mean that parents are going at this alone. Members may reach out to us, at any time, for ad hoc advice. Simply write us an email or call, and we will be there for you. Our approach was carefully selected to foster parent empowerment in the teaching of reading and spelling to their own children through the following “housekeeping” documents. Parents must register with our remediation center in order to request the download link to the following documents:

The eighty-seven lessons in our remediation center course catalogare divided into twelve courses. Each digital lesson is a self-guiding HTML5 with audio and animations. With our remediation center, parents, with or without a language training background, may easily provide systematic and forensic support for all students who are struggling with English language acquisition. With this forensic approach, students can be shown the phonetic nature of the English language and the proper structure of the written language. For a small fee of $49.99 per month, highly interactive, evidence-based reading instruction is available within the comfort of your own homes, and you, the parent, are the reading specialist. A simultaneous oral spelling drill is included in each lesson. If you so desire, you may enhance the simultaneous oral spelling drill at the end of the lesson, with the provided word lists. Students who struggle with reading benefit from repetition, and you can come back to the course as often as you like. Otherwise, what are you going to do? If you have two tutoring sessions per week with your language training instructor at $75.00 per hour, that leaves five days without reading remediation or practice. And if you have been dealing with a struggling reader, you know what happens during that down time.
The content of our remediation center was specifically designed to allow dedicated parents to provide remediation in home school environments or enrichment centers, as well as, to allow reading specialists, and mainstream or special needs English departments to deploy interactive and multi-sensory language training in traditional classrooms settings or through the establishment of reading labs. The complete language training system has been organized to provide fluidity of information to ensure success. Concepts that build upon other concepts have been placed accordingly.
You will find that, in our system, there are no cute little animals, funny faces, games, or anything else to distract the student from the task at hand. This curriculum is not designed to entertain. In its purest form, The English Code Language Training System seeks to explicitly and systematically teach the intrinsic relationship between sounds and the symbols that represent them in the English code.
Parents and students may access our remediation center and work through our language training presentations on desktops, laptops, tablets, or smart phones. You have access twenty-four (24) hours per day, seven (7) days per week. Provided that you have electricity and broadband, you will have an evidence-based, reading tutorial at your fingertips, whether you are at home, at the beach, or traveling around the world. Each digital presentation is in HTML5 format and houses a multi-sensory, Orton-Gillingham-based lesson that teaches the intricacies of the English language. Each presentation is also equipped with a simultaneous oral spelling drill at the end to further enhance mastery utilizing the three neurological pathways that humans use to learn. Finally, evidence-based reading instruction on demand and on the go!
