It Works!

Richards Learning Systems® is an effective learning approach that is successful with children and adults of all skill levels. Students of all learning styles master the language arts with Richards Learning Systems®. The program is designed for students to succeed and builds self-esteem for often-frustrated learners. Since the ability to read and comprehend well is critical to success in all subject areas, Richards Learning Systems® learners often show improvement in math and other disciplines.

Research studies validate the effectiveness of the Richards Learning Systems® program. A study by Case Western Reserve University compared the year-end Cognitive Abilities Test (CAT) scores of two sets of elementary school children. Richards Learning Systems® learners scored significantly higher than students taught with a standard reading curriculum. Before and after testing consistently illustrates an improvement in the mastery of basic decoding and reading comprehension skills for Richards Learning Systems® learners.

Many students have tried other learning approaches without improvement. These same students found success with the Richards Learning Systems® systematic language program.

A Smart or Dumb Issue?

Are poor readers just dumb? Definitely NOT! Many very bright children and adults have difficulty learning language skills. And many people that struggle with reading perform well and even excel in other disciplines like math, sports, or the arts. These individuals learn by doing! The Richards Learning Systems® multi-sensory techniques provide a better method for these individuals to improve their language skills.
