Reading fluency is the ability to read quickly and accurately. Once you are fluent in reading, you are able to focus on what the text means rather than trying to decode words. Five Minutes to Better Reading Skills helps you become a fluent reader in 5 minutes a day with short reading drills. There has been an independent 5 year study showing the substantial gains using it.

“I can’t get over the difference. Bridget won’t put a book down. Now we have to go into her room when we go to bed to be sure her light is off…she reads for hours at night. I can’t believe she read Harry Potter in just a few days!”

As a parent, educational therapist and learning disabilities specialist…

I’m here to tell you all is not lost. Over the last 35+ years I’ve found that every child can improve their skills, whether or not they have identified learning disabilities, dyslexia, or perception problems with the right reading strategies.

This reading approach has been developed from my 35+ years of working as a learning disabilities specialist and educational therapist – working with dyslexic readers, learning disabled students, ADHD, autistic children, aspergers, and more.

Five Minutes to Better Reading Skills is perfect for:

  • Families
  • Home-schooling families
  • Pull-out programs
  • Small group instruction
  • Special day classes
  • Private practices

Your child really can be a successful reader.

In fact, your child can actually get to the point where they enjoy reading so much that you need to tell them to stop reading, turn their light off, and go to bed.

And the good news is, your child can even improve their reading skills in just 5 Minutes a Day!

Five Minutes to Better Reading Skills… Are you kidding me! My son has been struggling to read for months and you’re telling me that spending 5 minutes a day will help him become a better reader!?

I know it sounds a little crazy… but it is true. In fact research by the University of Florida states that reading fluency practice that is only 5 or 6 minutes a day will result in substantial gains. It’s the daily fluency practice that makes the difference.

And, Debra Wilson from Redding, California states, “We did a five year study using Bonnie Terry’s Five Minutes to Better Reading Skills and the reading fluency of kids in our school district improved dramatically.”

readingThink back to times in your own life. When you were learning a new skill, did you learn the skill in one day, or did it take repeated practices? Think about it, you know that if you didn’t practice you got rusty. Michael Jordan didn’t become a GREAT basketball player without practicing. As Aristotle says, “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence is not an activity, but a habit.”

You know that ‘more of the same’ doesn’t always make a difference. Your child has been getting ‘more of the same’ every day at school, and their reading skills haven’t improved as much as they could or should. Have you asked yourself what you could do with your child to really make a difference in their reading skills?

You CAN really make a difference by doing a few simple things. You see fluency is just one aspect of reading skills. It is the component that forms the bridge, makes the connection between decoding and comprehension. Unfortunately fluency is one of the most neglected reading skills.

How can you help your child improve their reading fluency? You might even be afraid that you don’t have the knowledge, time, or patience it takes to make a difference with your child’s reading skills. You’re sure it must be a lot of WORK since your child isn’t reading with ease already.

You know what, improving reading skills, even for learning challenged or those with dyslexia is not as daunting as it seems!

Remember, when you bake a cake, you start off with the dry ingredients, add the water and egg, stir, pour into the pan, put it in the oven at the correct temperature and time and the outcome is a delicious cake. You don’t know all of the chemistry of what is happening to each of the ingredients that changes the gooey mess into a fluffy confection. You just followed the directions and it worked.

Reading strategies improve reading fluency and phonemic awareness and phonics too.

reading strategiesAs an educational therapist and learning disabilities specialist, I spent years studying the best way to address the reading problems caused by poor fluency. With this knowledge Five Minutes to Better Reading Skills, a reading fluency system was developed. It even addresses some of the underlying causes of fluency problems such as visual tracking and visual closure in short 5-minute fluency practice sessions.

Additionally, because phonemic awareness skills are critical to becoming a fluent reader, they are incorporated in the fluency drills. And, as you become a more fluent reader, your comprehension improves too!

With the step-by-step directions for you to follow, that are even easier than baking a cake, you can help your child (1st grade thru adults) improve their reading skills in just 5 minutes a day. You have the POWER to change your child’s entire future by helping them improve their reading skills!

You have the POWER to:

  • Improve your child’s reading fluency in just 5 minutes a day
  • Improve your child’s reading accuracy in just 5 minutes a day
  • Improve your child’s reading comprehension because they now read accurately in just 5 minutes a day

Be your child’s hero, make it right for them. It was like music to my ears one day when I was talking to my son, the one with fluency problems, when he was at the university. I asked him what he was doing and he said, “I spent the afternoon ‘sunk into the sofa’ with a book. I spent the afternoon reading!”
