The Reading Helper was developed by longtime educator Carol Reed as a critical reading strategies aid for those students and other readers who have trouble focusing on words on the page. The Helper is placed on top of the line to be read, and the colored plastic strip highlights the line, enabling the reader to easily concentrate and focus on the words. Many teachers wondering how to improve reading ability in their differently-abled students have found this to be a helpful tool that reduces the stress of learning how to read properly. Using these tools makes improving reading comprehension a far more reachable goal.
There are many difficulties people face when learning how to read. Scotopic sensitivity, dyslexia, and other conditions can cause students to have trouble focusing on words on the page, leading to skipping words and lines, reversing or transposing letters, and a loss of concentration that results in poor comprehension. Improving reading comprehension using the Helper can eliminate many of these difficulties, or at least lessen them, and prevent reading-related headaches and red or watery eyes. Each colored Helper processes the light entering the eye uniquely, so different colors may be preferred by different students. For many, yellow makes words stand out visually, making it a recommended starting tool.
