If this method is so simple, why didnt anyone figure it out before?
Frankly, were all scratching our heads and wondering the very same thing. Once a student experiences the ease and simplicity of the Universal Reading Method, theyll likely wonder why reading is taught any other way.
History has shown us many examples of game changing technology that, once accepted, has had the ability to instantly alter the status quo. Just as in most of those prior situations, this method is likely to meet resistance at first. People often have a difficult time with big paradigm shifts in any field.
There is an entire system in place set up to defend the way its always been done and many people might feel threatened. After all, the old methods worked for most of us, right? Well
It is estimated that up to ¼ of the adult population in the United States is functionally illiterate, with millions more inexplicably graduating high school every year. Tackling this huge problem with existing methods hasnt worked, nor can it work! Those systems are far too slow and cumbersome in their approach.
Put simply, the goal of the Universal Reading Method is to help wipe illiteracy off the face of the English-speaking world. It might take some time to accomplish that, but now we at least have a suitable tool to tackle this growing problem.
We hope youll give us a try. You have nothing to lose but more years of unnecessary frustration for the challenged reader that you know.
