NSU Reading Clinic
 
 "The program is phenomenal and unlike any other I’ve come across. ...
We now have something we didn’t have before — HOPE."
 

 
"Without this program, our child’s future in school was looking painful—
was painful—regardless of the efforts we’d been making."
 

 
"Our son likes to read, but school was not challenging him, so he was bored and starting to act out. The Reading Clinic challenges him at his pace and he enjoys learning."
 
 
"Our son used to hate reading; now he even admitted he 'likes to read.'
 ... He thought he couldn't do it. Now he knows he can."

Tutorin' Tim's Phonics

From Dr. Houge
: I am pleased to announce the publication of Tutorin’ Tim’s Phonics: Lessons for Reading and Spelling the Sounds of our Language and the accompanying Tutorin' Tim's Phonics Companion. I wrote this book to be used by parents, teachers, and tutors who know of someone longing to read and spell English accurately, fluently, and effortlessly—a young child, an adolescent, an adult, or someone for whom English is a new language.
