Has anyone used Corrective Reading?

Recommended Posts

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.

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.

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.
