[ What You Get! ]

Failure Free Reading Printed Materials

Based on the notion that all reading programs work but not for all students, Failure Free Reading’s non-phonic first reading intervention is the front-end for your lowest literacy special education and beginning English Language Learners students who are not reading well enough to benefit from more advanced leveled literacy interventions.

Failure Free Reading Print is a nationally recognized, non-consumable reading intervention specifically designed for students who need a non-phonic first alternative or for your over-aged students who have mastered basic phonics and decoding skills but still lack solid comprehension and expressive fluency.

Failure Free Reading Print focuses on the research-based best practices designed to significantly produce critical growth in comprehension, vocabulary, fluency, writing, and independent reading instruction. Easy to use and highly redundant Failure Free Reading Print gives chronically struggling students the opportunity to master critical academic words essential to future reading success within the simplest and most comprehensible connected text. Failure Free Reading is the first intervention to specifically control for the eight content roadblocks preventing chronically struggling readers to read for meaning.

Life Skills is for students/children/adolescents/adults reading with a 0.0-5th grade reading level and IQs as low as 35. Life Skills is suitable for: Ages 12-Adults: early reading, beginning English Language Learners, at-risk, and special education populations: autism, learning disabilities, intellectually disabled, deaf/HH and dyslexics.
