How Does Toe By Toe Work?
We are often asked: ‘How does Toe By Toe Work?’ To answer that question, we must first understand what are the particular problems people who struggle to read have.
Children and adults who find it difficult to read fluently struggle to read unfamiliar words confidently and accurately. This includes weak readers who struggle to decode text, or those with dyslexic difficulties.
Reading fluently, without pausing or hesitating when confronted by an unfamiliar word, is challenging for them.
Fortunately, Toe By Toe is a proven solution to anyone struggling to read.
Toe By Toe is essentially a decoding book. It combines a multi-sensory approach with a memory bonding technique.
We believe this approach is key to improving a person’s reading skill.
Why? Because typically, weak readers struggle to ‘decode’ text. Their inability to ‘decode’ text and the written word is at the core of their reading difficulties.
Struggling readers have difficulties in keeping a barely formed image of a word in their memory banks. What Toe By Toe strives to achieve (and does achieve) is to enable students to more easily recognize the image of a word and so commit it to their long-term memory.
Toe By Toe is the key, the ‘code’ to help anyone with reading difficulties learn how to read fluently, confidently and accurately. Toe By Toe achieves this by following the carefully prepared exercises in a timed and structured manner. This ensures students learn how to convert letters (or groups of letters – words) into the appropriate sounds.
