I am wondering if anyone can tell me about Corrective Reading?

 

Here is what I know -- I have heard really good things about this program for autism for reading comprehension.  But I have only heard that very vaguely!

 

My son will be in the recommended age range (3rd grade and up) next year and I am wondering if it might be appropriate for him now.

Well, my son has used Reading Mastery so I know a bit about it! It includes some comprehension and it was good for my son (very basic).

The presentation books for it are $$$ but we (my son did it with a tutor) had access to the presentation books through school... but we have moved now.

I got some of the materials from Amazon for decent prices. For whatever reason it is an older edition that was used, so I got that edition.

Edit: I mean I know how the comprehension questions are in the RM materials I have seen. They are from the same company.

I've used Corrective Reading Comprehension and can attest that it was easy to use and very effective. Thinking of returning to it at the next level up soon.

Great!

Do you get the teacher book or just student workbooks? Where do you purchase?

I have used corrective reading with multiple children over many years as a teacher and tutor.  It is a powerful learning tool.  There are placement tests to see if the child is ready for it.

I looked at the placement tests, thanks for the idea.

It looks like maybe a little more in the future for my son, but we are covering quite a few things from Level A in other ways, so that is good to see.

Here it says that it is typically taught to children in grades 4 and up. That’s another reason you might not be seeing the level of readiness, yet.

I looked at that, and it looks like he would place into Language for Thinking now, and it is for a younger age -- so I am going to look more at that.

I am looking at Critical Thinking Company now..... Language for Thinking looks much more expensive than Corrective Reading. And I do think my son is already covering about half the material from Language for Thinking in other ways.

I am looking at the Kindergarten level for my 2nd grader. I was asking him last night about same and different and he was having a hard time. Then some things he would be able to do easily. So I think it would be a good mix for him. But I am not sure!

Right now I am doing AAR Level 1 and Reflex Math, and I would possibly like to get back to Saxon math.

We have moved recently and I am still figuring out what to supplement at home.... and then I am also looking for summer.

I would love to hear what you pick and how it goes!

He has done a lot of "feature, function, and class." But he has done a lot where he has a picture to look at.

I think I need to go back to doing it with a picture, and then ask the same question with no picture.

I was looking at Building Thinking Skills, but I need to look more.

But thinking about it -- I think he can do more with pictures and then I need to make sure to go to where he is thinking of things and comparing them without a picture to look at.

On Saxon -- his teacher had end-of-year tests and end-of-semester tests.

He passed the end-of-Kindergarten test well, but got a 50 or 60% on the middle-of-1st grade
test.

So she suggested to start at the beginning of the 1st grade book.

But now I have moved and am still figuring things out with the new school, and figuring out what I will supplement and what my priorities are.

He does very well with Reflex Math, so I am satisfied with him doing that for now -- but depending on what I find out about his school math, I will see what I think.

I know Saxon works for him, though. It is a consistent format from day to day, and it has built-in review.

He was forgetting things before, so he needs either review or something with built-in review.
