Academic Associates Reading Center - Birmingham | Education
Academic Associates Reading Program™ is the most effective methodology for reading instruction. After years of frustration as a teacher and principle, Cliff Ponder developed a distinctive phonics-based reading program that provides students of all ages the "tools" that unlock the million words of English.
Non-readers can be reading over 300 words within 3 hours using this program! Most students complete the program in under 50 hours and gain 2-4 grade levels. Those with dyslexia and other learning challenges make remarkable gains.
Many teachers now use the Academic Associates Reading Program in the classroom. Public and private schools have adopted our program.
Did you know?
The longer it takes a poor reader to become a good reader the more disadvantaged the student is because of his weak knowledge base. Students who are in the seventh grade or above reading at the fourth grade level or below can become good readers but their knowledge base handicaps them in experiencing learning success.
Ninety percent of students who struggle with reading at the second grade level will never become good readers. If students are to succeed in school and in today's world it is imperative they all become good readers by the third grade.
