About Our Self-Taught Reading Program

When we were notified that our daughter was 1.5 years behind in her reading scores in the second grade, Babs started volunteering at our local school as a teacher's helper with reading programs. That was almost 30 years ago!!

We created this program for children to catch up with their peers! We noticed that most of the children that we taught had already formed some bad reading habits!.. they were making reading too difficult!! Over the years, I felt that I had developed a good reading program! When I received my students, they were already behind; I was always changing my techniques to see which of my ideas worked the best. At the same time, I was starting to see patterns as to why my students were having difficulties when reading words.

But...the most amazing reading results started to happen when my husband, Knobby, started drawing his silly pictures for my sounds!!! Those students that were able to be with me several times a week, showed rapid improvements!! In a few weeks, their word recognition skills advanced beyond their grade levels. I knew that Knobby had given those students with reading problems and me what we needed ! ... pictures... to help the kids remember my reading program!!

Several people have asked me to make a reading program with my methods of teaching kids and adults how to read in a short period of time! Here it is! ... a program for you to enjoy while you are learning how to read!!

Love to all,
Babs & Knobby

At this time I want to tell you thanks for putting together your program, and allowing me to finally grasp the ability to not only read, but find great pleasure in it. It's been an emotional transition.

I ordered your course a couple of months ago, and if you would have told me that I would be able to read today as well as I do, I would not have believed it. I am 39 years old. I have spent my life not being able to read. Out of fear and desperation, I searched to find help, and stumbled across your program.

At this time I would like you to know that I have just read my first book from cover to cover, "Life Strategies" by Dr. Phillip C. McGraw. After four weeks of studying your material, I was able to read and understand what I read. I have never been able to enjoy reading a book until now, and prior to this time spent needless energy covering up my inability to read. I'm even starting to pursue furthering my education.

Thank you for your program, and the ability to read.
