Customer Comments

"I am a Resource Specialist, and I have a student who could not read, no matter what program or method I tried. He has serious visual motor, visual discrimination, and visual processing difficulties. I told him that I had a magic wand, your sample strip, and it was going to help him read. He believed it, just like Dumbo’s feather, and he read to me for the very first time. The yellow made the words stand out visually, and it helped his tracking. When I showed and told his mom she cried. Actually we both did because we had tried so many different things. I thought you should know that your invention changed the life of a child, mom, and Resource Specialist. Thank you so much! I can’t wait to give him his very own ‘magic wand’.” S.B


Teaching Reading Strategies Using Our Help

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.

How to Improve Reading Ability Using the Helper

How to Improve Reading Ability

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.

Help with Critical Reading Strategies

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.
