Student Positional Based Reading Example Grade 4

Here is an example of the changes in reading that can occur with students simply by changing the position of their book. This student is in 4th grade, and test 1 is an example of her reading in Position “A”, which is with her paper flat on the desktop. She read 98 words per minute with 19 errors. She missed 5 out of 10 comprehension questions. Test 2 is while reading in Position “C”, which is with her paper held straight in front of her. This is the position she chose as the best reading position. While reading in position “C” she read 151 words per minute, had 5 reading errors and did not miss any comprehension questions. Both tests were “cold” reads and were at the 4th grade level. On the first test she scored in the 25th percentile, and on the 2nd test she scored in the 75th percentile. Click on the links below to hear her read.

Positional Based Reading Experiment Completed

We recently completed our experiment at the EIAA Charter School where we compared student reading in two different positions of the reading material. The results are compelling, and not exactly what we expected. Position one was while the child was sitting up straight with the reading material flat on the desk. This is position “A”. Then we moved the material through the “Reading Arc” (see previous posts on this) until they found a position where the words were more clear. We had them read a different story in this position so that they had two cold reads for comparison. For the full description and results, read this Journal Article

Reading Comparison of Dyslexic After 3 Weeks

The following video shows the reading improvement of a 2nd grade dyslexic boy after working with him just three times for one hour each over three weeks. During that time we showed him the Reading Vision System. His improvement is phenomenal. The Reading Vision System is a Dyslexia Strategy that is simple for anyone to learn and use.

The Reading Arc Test

The Reading Arc Test was created by Reading Vision LLC to show the concept of how a dyslexic is able to read normally once the reading material is placed in a position that allows their eyes to align correctly. The concept is simple. When you look down your eyes have to rotate inward and converge. When you look up your eyes will rotate outward and diverge. For struggling readers and dyslexics, their eyes don’t align while looking down at material that is placed on the desktop. However, somewhere in the reading arc, the words will become clear and they can read normally. For most dyslexics this in what we call position “C”, which is while holding the book straight¬† out and level with their eyes. For many, the best position is in position “D”, which is while looking slightly upward. Those that are the worst have to hold their book in position “E”, which is almost looking straight up. Some dyslexics learn to compensate by leaning over their book to look straight down, or slouching in their desk while propping their book up on another book. If they learn how to compensate they can get by. Most however don’t figure this out, and never reach their potential.

Dyslexic Boy Reading Nonsense Words

This video shows how a dyslexic who can’t read nonsense words while looking down can read them easily while reading in their “clear spot”. For this student his best position is position “C”, which is looking straight ahead. Amazing difference! He misses seven out of ten while reading at the desktop level in reading position “A”. He only misses one out of ten while reading in position “C:”. This child is of normal intelligence but does not perform well at school. Our goal is to improve his reading fluency at the desktop level. With improved fluency comes improved comprehension, which also leads to improved confidence.

Dyslexic Reading Nonsense Words

A known peculiarity of Dyslexics is their inability to read nonsense words. However, when the written material is placed in the “clear spot”, i.e., the student’s best position in the reading arc, they can clearly read nonsense words. Watch this video of a 5th grade girl as she attempts to read nonsense words on the desktop, then in position “C” of the reading arc. This shows that the brain functions correctly when she can see the words clearly.

Dyslexia Solved Parent and Daughter Video Testimonial

Here are two videos created by a parent and her daughter as testimonials to the Reading Vision System.

The daughter is in 5th grade and was doing very well in school due to her hard work and parent support. However, the parents noticed that she struggled with reading and it took forever each night to complete her homework. She did not like to read and only read the required amount. She did not read for fun. When I first listened to her reading I noticed her struggling.¬† This was in mid December of 2013. At that time I started her on the Penny Power eye exercise and we agreed to meet via FaceTime to demonstrate the rest of the program. With the holidays it was difficult to find time to meet, so we didn’t show her the Reading Method until January 11th. She had been doing her eye exercise daily and was ready to begin the next step. When I tested her she read 135 words per minute with 17 errors. She skipped entire lines of text, fabricated words, and had to re-read to remember what she read. However, she read better than she had back in December, and her parents noted that she had been performing better at school with just doing the eye exercise. I showed her the reading method and could tell that it was working. The change is instant once they can see the words clear. You can hear their fluency and speed increase. She and her parents were very excited. This session was conducted via FaceTime. We met again on January 15th and I gave her a second reading test. This [...]
