If teaching reading is rocket science,
then consider us rocket scientists.

Time is of the essence.

Poor readers can often be identified by age 4 or 5, but these same students usually don't receive individualized, multisensory research based tutoring until age 8 or 9. At this point, it takes 4 times longer to make the same gains compared to attacking the problem earlier. To put it another way, what could have been resolved in 30 minutes daily in Kindergarten takes 2 hours daily for 4th gradersand older students have an even bigger skill gap to closeand this is without factoring in the adverse effects on self-esteem, confidence and social and emotional health due to problems with reading (Hall, S. L. & Moats, L.C. (1999) Straight Talk About Reading. Lincolnwood, IL: Contemporary Books).
