READING BUNDLES

All Reading Bundles now include our NEW Comprehension Series!

We designed our curriculum to be especially appealing to–and effective for–teaching children with Down syndrome, autism/ASD, ADD/ADHD, and PDD/NOS.

And we are delighted to add a new component to our program…a Comprehension Evaluation Series which does not require verbal ability.

“Thank you thank you!!! My first grader (with Down syndrome) received an Accelerated Reader award usually given to second-to-fourth graders. I cried while I filmed him walking down the aisle while the students chanted his name. Natalie, your program made this possible! I used your program the summer before Kinder, and he went into Kinder reading. We absolutely love and adore your program, and it truly, truly works!” -J.K., Florida

 

“We have been using your Special Reads for Special Needs program at Notre Dame School since November 2016 and we LOVE this program! It has been a joy to watch our students learn new words and become more interested in books! Before this program one non-verbal student was unable to read simple words, and now she is reading not just words but BOOKS! We love how the pictures are so vibrant in color, and they really are self-explanatory due to how specific the graphics are. Thank you for creating such an amazing resource that can allow ALL students to learn how to read.” –C., K., & M., Educators, Canada

NEW! Comprehension Evaluation Series

Our NEW Comprehension Evaluation Series is ready! We designed this series so that no verbal ability is required to complete these tests.

This series is ideal for educators who must evaluate reading comprehension regardless of a lower literacy level, and homeschoolers will find it a welcome and efficient tool for keeping track of comprehension progress.

This series tests comprehension of the first 3 Dolch Word List levels: Pre-Primer (Emergent), Primer, and First Grade. This series is designed to be used with our High Frequency Picture Books, which are included in all of our reading bundles.

This Comprehension Series can also be used independently of our High Frequency Book series, though students may not know the high interest words taught in our HF Books. In that case, this Comprehension Series can only test knowledge of the Dolch high frequency words for the first 3 levels, and will not test knowledge of various high interest words we use (pizza, dog, etc.).

Each level increases in difficulty; students in the first two Dolch levels are asked to silently read the sentence and mark or circle the correct picture.

At the advanced first grade level, two versions of each test are given: the first is color coded to show the answer to what is usually a “wh” question; the second version is without color. In this way, the first grade tests train the learner in referential comprehension: the student learns to refer back to the text to find the answer.
