Reading gains for pupils using the RfS Program and Enhanced Lateralization

Public School Pupils, grades 7, 8, and 9 (page 2, grades 3, 4, & 5)

The first score for each pupil is his entering score. All scores are from Gilmore Oral Reading test. Numbers represent grade levels. In the first case, Tony W. entered the program in 1971 with a reading level of third grade, fifth month, and left it after three years of training reading at ninth grade, seventh month. Wherever a student stayed less than a year in the program, his number of  lessons is indicated. O.S. represents off scale on the Gilmore, or over 9.8.

Most of the students were scheduled for three lessons a week, but attendance varied widely. Spelling results were poor. Most students learned to read quite cred itably, but their spelling usually went from atrocious to merely bad.

Students From Private Tutoring

Reading gains for pupils using the RfS Program and Enhanced Lateralization:

Students were tutored five time a week, 45 minutes per lesson, two at a time. Numbers represent reading grade levels: 3.7 would mean third grade, seventh month. O.S. is off scale on the Gilmore Reading Test, or above 9.8. Grades represent the grade of the student when he entered the program.
