Reading is incredibly important. Without the ability to read, so much the world has to offer around us is forever lost. Unfortunately, learning to read for some kiddos can be a struggle. There is more to reading, however, than merely looking at the words and sounding them out. Once a child is able to read, next comes the master of comprehension. Now they have a whole world of fantastic stories, daring rescues, new friends, and colorful imagery.
That is where MaxScholar comes in….
MaxScholar says that it can improve reading levels in as little as 30 hours! Yes, you read that correctly – 30 hours! They use a five pillar approach in order to reach your kiddos in the best way possible. Here are the five pillars:
- Phonemic Awareness
This program is especially helpful if you have a child who has dyslexia, ADHD/ADD, sensory issues, autism, or other special areas that sometimes make reading more difficult for these kiddos. MaxScholar‘s programs are systemic and multi-sensory methods that are based on a lot of research from the methods of Orton-Gillingham and the Linda-Bell process. This program is also completely adaptable between differing ages and/or levels!
Before I get into how we used this, I want to share with you some of the programs that MaxScholar offers:
- Pre-K Phonics
- MAXGURU (which is what I am reviewing)
Here are a couple of videos to show how awesome this program is and to give you an idea of what it is like:
Do you homeschool? If so, this program is perfect for you! Do you public school? If so, this program is perfect for you! Do you private school? If so, this program is perfect for you! MaxGuru is designed for all kids! This program is designed to be used at home to help bring your kiddos up to speed on their reading levels, regardless of age, reading level or schooling preference (public, private or home).
How did we use this program?
I was blessed with the opportunity to use this program for my younger two kiddos. I began by giving my youngest the pretest. The test determines the appropriate reading level of your child, regardless of age. The pretest quizzed him on definitions and what the story was about. This test placed my 7-year-old into a 2nd grade reading comprehension level. I wasn’t surprised because he would actually be attending 2nd grade next year. We did not participate in the phonics because he didn’t require this part (he’s been reading since age 4).
My middle child also took the pre-test. He is the child we believe has dyslexia, but are still waiting evaluation. Where reading has come easy for my oldest and youngest, he has worked extraordinarily hard on his reading. I think he does extremely well considering all of his obstacles. Anyway, the pretest placed him on the 3rd grade comprehension level. I was somewhat surprised in two ways. One, he just finished the 3rd grade. Two, I thought he might have been on a 2nd grade reading comprehension level. My surprise was a delight.
I highly recommend this program and encourage you to give it a try! I am thrilled with the results we are seeing with our boys!
