Behavioral Reading

Behavioural Reading Features:

  • DIY Teaching method for parents who want to help their child learn to read better and  faster
  • Rapidly creates a correct model of reading sequencing and  behaviours
  • Creates the ‘efficient’ neurology typical of proficient readers
  • Focus is on building the ‘processes’ needed to read, recall, decode, remember and comprehend rather than the individual words
  • Accesses the thousands of words in the ‘language bank’ of the child and integrates them into the decoding and ‘reading bank’
  • Recognises and deactivates over dominating modalities such as visual, auditory, or memorisation when they impact on the reading process
  • Acts to integrate and activate all modalities concurrently including: visual, auditory, motor, visualisation, colour,  receptive language, expressive language, working memory, ROTE, executive planning
  • Alters the sequencing and organisation of the brain by strategic external exercises
  • Rapidly removes emotional and preconditioned ‘stress’ and ‘failure’ responses caused by unpleasant experiences at school
  • Able to be easily adjusted to reflect individual nuances
  • Reading fluency is usually initiated in one session
  • Visual separation from word being spoken
  • Corrects sequencing when ‘parrot’ recall (Auditory memory)  dominates the reading effort.
  • Breaks the “85 words per minute” neurological threshold
  • Breaks the slow ‘word by word’  type of reading
  • Breaks the slow or rapid ‘word by word’  type of reading
  • Breaks the monotone and lack of expression in reading
  • Initiates and optimizes working memory and expansion
  • Accurately locates exact working memory ceilings
  • Trains Short term memory to Long term memory transition
  • Fatigue tolerance is improved to within normal limits
  • Assists Eye fatigue and pain when vision is not impaired but where cramping of muscles occurs in the eyes as a stress response to decoding fatigue and working memory limits
  • Spelling via Behavioural reading incorporating, ROTE, visualisation word families and multisensory method
  • Rapid 3 minute Spelling method
  • ‘Vocabulary Circles’ for easy rapid vocabulary expansion utilising expressive and receptive language resources in the brain
  • Adding 50 – 200 reading words per week
  • Reading accuracy created quickly and predictably
  • Decoding made easy
  • Decoding improvements without instruction on individual words
  • Deactivates the negative aspects of ‘Sight words’
  • Creates the neurological aspects of ‘sight words’ without the need to learn the ‘lists’
  • Creates the sight word ‘effect’ predictably, controllably and rapidly
  • Automaticity in reading recognizing decoding as the primary behaviour and comprehension as the targeted secondary behaviour
  • Comprehension initiation via visualization and verbalizing (Bell, Nancy1986)
  • Creates the essential neurological sequencing required for simplistic  ‘recall’ based contextual comprehension through to the complex ‘abstract’ non contextual comprehension
  • Undo and rectify the ‘sight word’ defects
  • Undo and rectify the “Look say cover write check” spelling method defects
  • Maths times tables via Rote + Working memory optimization
  • Maths times tables using “Perfect” technique and incorporating motor planning
