The Reading Helper was developed over a long educational career by its creator, Carol Reed. In work teaching reading strategies as an educator, guidance counselor, tutor, and consultant, she encountered many students of both beginning and experienced levels in need of reading comprehension strategies. Wondering how to improve reading ability, she came up with the Helper, a small device designed to be placed over the words to be read. The colored plastic helps readers to focus, and is great for those students suffering from scotopic sensitivity or even dyslexia.
Simply place the Helper on top of the line to be read. The colored plastic highlights the line, and is ideal for children and adults who tend to skip words or lines, reverse or transpose letters, or lose their place when working through complex sentences or ideas. With this tool in place, it is much easier to begin implementing critical reading strategies since it is easier to concentrate. When figuring out how to improve reading ability through reading comprehension exercises, it may be necessary to try several different colors to see which works best for the particular student.
Because the Helper alleviates many beginning level reading comprehension troubles for readers, teachers are able to focus on the bigger picture. This means teaching reading strategies rather than focusing on going line by line. Since teachers can focus on critical reading strategies, speed and comprehension will improve.
