A.D.D. & A.D.H.D.  Superior  Speed Readers!!



"Why are kids with ADHD & ADD
often the
best Rapid Readers?"

Every school teacher knows who they are.   The kids in the back row who don't pay attention.  The ones with the shortest attention span.  Also, they are the ones who struggle to read.  These are the ones who have ADHD or ADD.

If you go to any high school in the country, you'll find that a high percentage of these kids are doing poorly in their school classes.  Quite often they are poor readers.  So how is it that SO MANY of them end up being the best in the class whenever any of them takes a speed reading class?

It all has to do with how the brain works.  Let me explain.

Our brains are divided into two halves.  Each half functions separately from the other half, yet the job that each half does is helpful for the whole brain to do its job.  The Left half of our brain is more methodical and analyzes things in a step-by-step fashion.  The Right half is more intuitive and can cover much information in a short span of time.

The fact is, that most of us are more Left-Brain dominant.  And since "normal reading" is processed in the Left side of the brain, we tend to do well with the regular way of reading (word-by-word reading). That is all fine and well, but the problem for the ADHD and ADD crowd, is that they are Right-Brain dominant. And they have more trouble processing written words in a one-at-a-time sequence (remember, that is a Left-Brain activity).  

Fortunately for the Right-Brained kids, their brains are ideally suited to read rapidly.  This is because speed reading is also processed in the Right-Brain.  And this is where the ADHDers have most of their connections.

"So, are you saying that they will read better if they go FASTER rather than SLOW?"  you may ask.

Yep.  That's exactly what I'm saying.  

But what do we normally do in schools to "help" these kids?  We do the worst thing possible.  We slow them down to a crawl.   And when that doesn't work, we slow them down even more.  No wonder so many of them get brainwashed into believing that they are dumb, or even stupid.  

I can't tell you how many times I've had an ADHD or ADD student in one of my rapid reading classes.  Often they are dragged in by their mom, against their will.  I clearly recall one 13-year old girl.  She was very resentful for being made to come to my reading workshop.  Fortunately for her, I had a bag of candy and lots of contests and fun.  She liked the candy and "faked" an interest in order to win some more treats.  Within 10 minutes or so, she started to realize that speed reading was no joke.  She was the best in the class.  After the workshop was over, she was all smiles and confessed to me that this was the first time in her life that she had ever enjoyed reading.  

She wasn't talking about the treats, either.  She was honestly understanding the written word without any trouble, for the first time ever, and it was thrilling for her.  

Her mom was happy, too.

You see, kids with ADHD are usually quite smart (some sources say that a high percentage of them have IQ's of over 130).  Their moms and dads know this, and they want to find a way to help their kids fulfill their potential.  Speed reading is one of the easiest and quickest ways to help your son or daughter improve grades, boost self-esteem and break the fetters that keep them chained to the bottom of the class.

FAQ's

Q.  Should I try a computerized Reading Fluency program for my ADHD child?
A.  The computerized speed reading programs are popular. And it's cool the way they can flash the words at a predetermined rate on the monitor. But when you get away from the screen, you'll have to rely on your own skills to do the job of seeing all those words smoothly and quickly. This skill is best developed the old-fashioned way:  in books.

Computer programs amount to a crutch that doesn't exist in books, magazines, and newspapers.  The computer programs can have some value, of course, but the progress that I've witnessed from computer programs is not as great as that which I've seen from following the Speed Reading 4 Kids methods.  That's why SR4K has a moneyback guarantee.

Q.  This sounds too good to be true.  
A.  World-famous expert Jeffrey Freed, MAT, said this in his book Right-Brained Children in a Left-Brained World:  "Right-Brained children, almost without exception, make the best speed readers."  If you will take the time and effort to teach a few ADHD/ADD children to read rapidly (as I have), you will notice the same pattern that I've noticed:  It is common for these children to attain reading rates of over 2,000 words per minute with good comprehension.  By comparison, the average college graduate reads about 300 wpm.
