Results for Special Education Students are Exceptional
Read Right tutoring is highly effective with special education students. Consider these results, reported by elementary, middle, and high schools using Read Right tutoring with special education students:
Testing Instrument: Gates-MacGinitie Reading Tests, Comprehension Sub-Set
Testers: Various schools implementing Read Right tutoring
- ELEMENTARY SpEd Students (n=94): 1.56 grade levels of gain with an average 40 hours of tutoring (average/10.4 NCE gain)
- MIDDLE SCHOOL SpEd Students (n=232): 1.69 grade levels of gain with an average 46 hours of tutoring (average/10.2 NCE gain)
- HIGH SCHOOL SpEd Students (n=403): 2.06 grade levels of gain with an average 45 hours of tutoring (average/10.1 NCE gain)
An interesting question arises from the data: Why do middle and high school students improve so much faster? In the elementary years, children are still acquiring a great deal of the language and knowledge of the world needed to be successful with reading. Read Right methodology is highly effective because it helps students tap into all of the knowledge that they bring to the reading process. Middle and high school students typically have more language skills and knowledge of the world to support reading. At every level, our comprehensive system uses a library composed of hundreds of books to help students grow their knowledge as they correct the underlying reading problem. It is a complete, turn-key approach to reading improvement.
