Reading’s HIDDEN HURDLE: Get the Facts!

60 Hours can lead to huge growth


Inefficient Reading is the Hidden Hurdle

Research shows that 70% of non-proficient readers and 30% of proficient readers process text inefficiently. Inefficient reading is the hidden hurdle that prevents the development of fluency, comprehension, and motivation.

Efficiency goes hand in glove with motivation and comprehension. Readers need all three to be able to learn new ideas from books they read. Think of it as a combination of skill, will, and thrill. Efficiency provides the skill, motivation engenders the will, and comprehension leads to the thrill of acquiring new ideas
