History and progress
Early Reading arose from research in 1983 that showed that dyslexics understood the meaning of a word, even though they could not say it. It will help dyslexics and show slow readers, but is effective for all children and will work with adults.
In a span of 18 months, Early Reading grew from nothing to more than 50 schools in Kenya and Uganda.
The purpose of reading is to develop a connection between text and meaning. Education has decided that because English is a semi-phonetic language, reading should be taught by phonics.
That is an epic blunder for two reasons:
It is effective for only 80% of readers. The rest are called dyslexic.
It postpones reading by at least 3 years, while the child learns phonetic decoding.
How different speech! Children learn to speak and understand the spoken word as part of maturation. Why not reading. Show the printed word at the same time as the spoken word, and the child will understand both. Early Reading is a form of speed reading.
