A child who can't read well will experience Dynaread's approach as respectful and effective.

Scientific research has demonstrated that the basis for most reading struggles is neurological. Most children with dyslexia struggle with sounding out new words (phonological decoding). This is why the majority cannot progress in reading when taught with a typical classroom phonics-based approach.

Building on fundamental realities in Reading Science, Dynaread developed a teaching program that takes advantage of the fully functional fast-route or lexical-route reading process in the brain of a child with dyslexia. It will be a tremendous relief to your child to finally encounter age-appropriate reading lessons that they can also read and comprehend. Dynaread's approach teaches children to read through reading.

How does Dynaread differ from other programs

  • Lessons contain age-appropriate and engaging non-fiction stories. Your child will never be subjected to simplistic (and often degrading) lessons such as "the cat sat on the mat."

  • Our online program can be done from any computer with internet access: No commute to an educational facility. Remediation from the comfort of your school or home, yet with expert assistance only a phone call or support ticket away.

  • Our resident academics - experts in dyslexia, special education, learning disabilities, and reading sciences - provide free support. Whenever you have questions or are in need of advice, we're here to help. Our help is not only there for your child, or your school children, but also there for you: the teacher. We know what it takes to education children with special needs. We are here to help both you, and your child: free of charge.

  • Dynaread is backed by a heart-centered desire to help children, including yours! Our entire team is genuinely passionate about helping children succeed. To demonstrate that these are not just empty words, we operate a Grants Fund allowing low income families to receive a grant covering up to 75% of program costs. We simply want to do our best to try to help as many children as we can.

  • Each online dyslexia test is personally reviewed and (when qualifying) is followed up with a full report back to you by one of our specialists at no charge. Combined with our flexible pricing, this service effectively removes cost as a barrier to dyslexia remediation. At Dynaread we're passionate about helping children succeed.

My son began working with the program Dynaread about 18 months ago, and has grown in his reading ability and fluency. His main diagnosis is Childhood Apraxia of Speech, and this has impacted not only his speech, but anything that involves language. He also struggles with auditory processing issues. Reading, of course, was very difficult for him. The program gave him more autonomy over his learning, and freed him from always directly working with a teacher or therapist for his reading practice. This motivated him to keep at the practice. It also sped up his reading, allowing him to more easily recognize words as a whole unit, instead of always relying on sounding out every single part. He still has many things to improve, but this came at a crucial time when he was getting discouraged about his reading. And it allowed him to progress at his own pace. Thank you for the program!

I love this program! When my daughter Kimberly started to use dynaread she was struggling to read simple words and sentences. Kimberly enjoyed memory games at the beginning of each lesson, and then move through the lesson by herself each day. The program was easy to use and today she reads fluently. It is such a joy to see her reading chapter books now only a short time later!!
PS. One thing that I would like to mention is that I really appreciate the content. I am extremely careful with what my children read. I was pleasantly surprised to find the topics about which my daughter was reading were excellent.

His reading has drastically improved both in terms of comprehension and fluency. It has been a long journey for us parents as well, trying always to find the way to ensure a steady dynaread routine of 6 days per week with rewards and enthusiasm. My message to other parents is to trust the program because it does work, definitely it works! Our son is dyslexic and will always struggle a bit on reading. But now he is confident on his ability and most importantly he loves reading as we can tell from books piling next to his bed. Thank you!

Our daughter is dyslexic and struggled a great deal with reading fluency and comprehension. We tried to help her through typical methods (a regular tutor, the Barton program and even a reading specialist). These methods didn't help her at all as it didn't address the core of her reading problem. Her brain is wired differently so she needs to be taught differently. She started the Dynaread program over the summer and everything has changed. We just received her report card and she's achieved reading fluency and her reading comprehension is on par with her classmates. My husband is also dyslexic and often wonders how much easier life would have been if Dynaread was available to him when he needed it. This program has been a blessing to our family. Please don't waste your time on other conventional methods that just don't work!

We started DYNAREAD in January 2018 after having had many frustrating education planning meetings over the years with our son's school. Despite multiple interventions, by fourth grade the teachers were indicating to us that Liam may not graduate from High School because he could not learn to read! We found Dynaread on the internet. All the interventions in the past had been Phonics-based and did not help. We have a long way to go but in these first three months we've been using DYNAREAD we have finally seen improvement and are very grateful for it! In March, for Spring Break, we visited a book store in Memphis TN. Liam had us buy him two Big Nate books (something he never would have asked for in the past). He completely read one of these books in the car as we traveled around TN and then drove home to Ohio. Thank you so much! [Dynaread:We're very proud of Liam. Our program does incluse Phonics training, but we do so much more in ways specificlly designed for older struggling readers.]

Three of our children have worked through Dynaread, and the results are so positive. I’m finding myself having to tell them to put their books away until their chores are done! I never thought I’d see the day when I’d almost be annoyed at how much time they spend reading- and it’s a strange feeling for a parent to experience irritation, joy, and thanksgiving over the same issue! They didn’t always enjoy every step of the journey, and they won’t always admit that reading was a huge frustration and struggle before Dynaread, but as parents, we can see the enormous difference in their academic and personal lives since completing the program. I highly recommend the Dynaread program and support staff!

When it was determined that our 13.5 year old daughter was needing tutoring for her dyslexia, we promptly got her tutoring. We were advised to get her Orton Gillingham tutoring specifically, and it needed to be a minimum of 2 times a week for her to grow and understand reading etc. We began to see this was taking a toll on her and stopped the tutoring as it was not working for her. As a homeschooling family living in a small town, we needed more but could not travel. That's when we found Dynaread. Our daughter is now 15 and has progressed in leaps and bounds. She reads approximately 113 words per minute and has an excellent handle on sounding words out or figuring out their meaning and pronunciation through context. I cannot recommend Dynaread enough. Hans is personable and kind and extremely helpful and encouraging. Our daughter now reads regularly for pleasure because she can!! THANKS DYNAREAD!

Dynaread has been the missing key to our 14 year old daughters reading challenges. We tried tutors and different curriculum to no avail. Not only has dynread increased our daughters reading speed, but its widened her vocabulary. The content is engaging and well presented. As with many dyslexics, routine is crucial, and so with Dynaread, one lesson lasts approximately 15-20 minutes long. Doing this task daily has greatly improved her reading ability.

She really liked the non-fictional topics of the readers: They were interesting, presented balanced views on the world around us, and closed with relevant applications.

After discovering my son (Drew) is dyslexic last year, I spent several months tutoring him on my own. We quickly hit a wall in our day-to-day practices. I spent several weeks researching curriculum designed for dyslexia that I could apply at home. I was discouraged with most of what I found--boring, tedius curriculum that I would first have to learn before teaching to my son after he returned from a full day of school. Dynaread has been a wonderful discovery for us! Drew is able to work on it each day, mostly autonomously. (He usually does it before heading out the door to school.) I am no longer scouring the local library looking for material that meets both his maturing interests and his reading level. In addition to Dynaread, we read to each other from chapter books daily.

As our son built up his sight word bank, his reading speed improved significantly. This helped him to understand the context of what he was reading rather than only getting one word at a time. This in turn helped him to overcome his frustrations which gave him increased confidence and reading enjoyment. Instead of "I can't read" I now hear "Can we go to the library?" Mr. Dekkers was a pleasure to deal with. It is obvious that he sincerely cares about helping children. I highly recommend both Dynaread and the support team behind the program.

The child I work with chose not to participate in my learning support program, but was receptive to giving Dynaread a try. I am thankful that this child has chosen to continue building his skills and engaging in learning. By choosing this opportunity I believe he feels more motivated and engaged in his learning.

I cannot thank you enough for how you have blessed our family, and in particular my son. As a trained teacher I never thought that I would ever have trouble teaching a child to read. Well, my son is now ten and after a number of years of trying different methods and struggling through a variety of programs, he is finally reading, thanks to the Dynaread program. My initial call with Hans at Dynaread gave me the hope that I had prayed for. Yes, Hans, when you described my son like no one else had, I knew you understood and had something that could assist my son's reading. We LOVE the Dynaread program. And now with the upgrades, it is even better. We love the organization of it, the independence for my son, the monitored procedures,the repetition, the initial game to start each lesson and the splash of yellow to keep my son on task. We LLLOOOOVVVE the topics and information that have been chosen to teach the new words. We appreciate that the program does not "dumbdown" my son with elementary dialogue such as, 'The cat sat on the mat' but teaches new words using mature and age-appropriate language. Because of the topics you have chosen we have discovered a lot more about the first trip to the moon, the different animals in the coral reefs, the functions of blood, and so much more. It has been a joy! Oh, but the thing that I, the mother of a dyslexic child, love best about Dynaread is your care. Yes, from the first telephone call right until today, I have felt supported, encouraged and comfortable asking for assistance from each one of you. That has made a huge difference for me. I had felt very alone during our journey of trying to figure out how my son's brain worked and how we were ever going to teach him to read. That has all changed after working with all of you at Dynaread. Even the lovely voice on the recordings is encouraging. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your understanding! I have to tell you that my dear friend, who has been a special-ed teacher for years, is thrilled with your program. She appreciates how it has incorporated a number of dyslexic philosophies into one easy method. Also, with my son also having a specific vision problem, we are thankful that the lesson screen is not white, bright and painful to his eyes. Thank you so very, very much for the time and energy you have given for children you do not even know. Keep up the great work! May you be blessed as you have blessed!!!

Get them tested at Dynaread, if you find they are dyslexic, sign them up to do the Dynaread program right away. The sooner the better. Give your child the huge advantage of learning to read in a way that will work for them. It will do wonders for their self-esteem.

My son recently graduated from the Dynaread program. Having been his instructor and primary motivator, I would highly recommend this program to anyone with a child experiencing difficulties in learning to read. The short entrance test gives you a readout that you can later compare with the readout given at the end of the program to see the amazing progress. The program itself is broken up into short segments with appropriate breaks, which is important for short attention spans. As my son progressed through the program, he was able to read longer and more difficult passages. I could see his progress. Beyond the program itself, there was help from the Dynaread team there when I needed it. When I had questions, they were answered; when I needed help, it was there. The reason I so highly recommend Dynaread, in short, is because I went from a son who struggled to read a sentence unless it was something he had memorized, to someone who turned to me after graduation and said "Mama, I am proud that I can read". He now reads entire passages of the Bible out loud and will occasionally (when he finds a book that interests him) spend the entire afternoon reading. What more could you ask?

Dynaread was something we started being guaranteed success. Unfortunately, that was not the case. Although the Dynaread team was helpful, the program was not helpful at all for our daughter. After much personal research into dyslexia, I would submit that only children with a certain type of dyslexia, not all dyslexia (as they claim) would be potentially helped by the program. DYNAREAD Response When Jocelyn choose to stop working with us, she wrote us the following closing words. QUOTE Thank you so much for all the work you invested into trying to help [student name]. I do believe you have a phenomenal program and team of people that will help many to break the bonds of illiteracy. Wishing you the best in your vision to help others. UNQUOTE We worked with Jocelyn's student for three months. Her student faced additional challenges. Our Learning Disabilities specialist Dave Munro and our Cognitive Neuroscience specialist Mark Wessinger provided additional coaching. Jocelyn rated our service level with four stars (five is maximum).

DYNAREAD: Grounded in Reality

Photo of a soldier and his family.

Dynaread has been developed in the trenches of actual remediation, with our feet firmly planted on the ground. Scientific research is essential (and we consistently use it), but we also understand the realities at home and in school. Not all homes have two parents, not all Dad's or Mom's are always home, there is oftentimes no money, schools lack staff or funding. We listen, we observe, we discuss, and we build the best solutions we can for older (ages 7+) struggling readers.
