Your child’s pathway to better grades in school and a more successful life is through helping them improve the skills needed to become a stronger reader. Learning Lab’s LifeReader™ is our customized approach to help your child become a better reader.
Learning to Read Can Often be a Challenge
When your child reads aloud, do you get the feeling that they’re just going through the motions? Do you ask questions about what they’ve read, only to receive a blank stare? It’s fairly common for early learners to develop the skills to enunciate words and complete whole sentences without fully grasping or remembering what they’ve just read. Fluency is the speed and accuracy with which a student is able to decode words, but in order to develop a true passion for reading, they have to also master the art of comprehension. For some students, it may come naturally to connect those dots, but for others, it may not. Regardless of which category your child fits into, LifeReader™ can provide the tools needed to help push them to the next level!
Teaching children to read isn’t easy. There are a wide variety of reading programs and ways to teach, but, based on your child’s needs and learning style, do you know which program and teaching method will work best for them? Understanding your child’s reading ability can feel like a mystery, but it doesn’t have to be. With LifeReader™, we will help unlock your child’s reading potential.
Learning Lab's LifeReader™: A Unique Reading Approach
Designed to close learning gaps at a faster rate
Based on a multi-sensory approach that targets all learners
Features dyslexia-specific intervention
Addresses all reading deficits
Offers customized guidance to help students overcome problems or manage learning-related concerns, including spelling and vocabulary instruction
Our approach is based, in part, on multi-sensory engagement through a student’s use of sight, hearing, movement, and touch. And, according to researchers, this kind of approach greatly strengthens the learning process by providing more than one way for your child to connect with the content that they read. LifeReader™ is designed to target traditional learners, as well as students who may have a learning difference, such as dyslexia, that requires specialized intervention strategies. LifeReader™ is optimally suited for use in Learning Lab’s one-on-one learning environment, and it helps all readers excel by improving their reading speed, vocabulary, fluency, phonics, spelling, and comprehension at any grade level!
How is LifeReader™ Different?
LifeReader™ is different from the way other reading centers may approach their instruction. At the Learning Lab, we understand that there is no “one size fits all” when it comes to how children learn to improve their reading skills. We have carefully curated our curriculum to include the use of a range of programs that have been identified by education leaders as having the best impact on teaching children how to read. So, whatever your child’s needs and learning style may be, LifeReader™ can help. Additionally, our curriculum should provide some familiarity, since we utilize programs that are widely used by public and private schools throughout Middle Tennessee.
Learning Lab’s LifeReader™ Trained Specialists Will:
Assess your child’s strengths and weaknesses
Determine whether there’s a learning difference that needs to be addressed
Implement proven strategies designed to produce a lifelong love of reading and learning
Measure your student’s progress and provide updates
Conduct a final assessment
Provide recommendations for post-program guidelines
Why Reading by the End of Third Grade Matters
Children who are behind their peers in reading also struggle with low self-esteem and feelings of inadequacy. Furthermore, research shows that students who can’t read on grade level by the end of 3rd grade are four times less likely to graduate by the age of 19 compared to their peers. As if those factors weren’t concerning enough, poor reading skills are often the common denominator in school discipline and poor attendance. Is it time to get help?
