We are underestimating the reading ability of struggling readers.

The enemy is not the teacher or the student. The enemy is the instructional approach. Change the approach and you will change the student's performance - regardless of age, classification or prior reading ability.

Researchers cite first ever evidence of actual brain rewiring in poor readers:

For thirty years, Failure Free Reading is the program schools and districts rely on for their chronically struggling students.

Let Failure Free Reading's non-phonic first intervention help you tap into the brain's neuroplasticity and visual reading pathway.

Failure Free Reading allows students, who don’t easily get phonics, to tap into the brain’s exciting non-phonic, visual pathway.

Brain imaging researchers from Carnegie-Mellon University and The Massachusetts' Institute of Technology have documented that Failure Free Reading's non-phonic reading intervention actually rebuilds cortical brain cells in the brains of poor readers, which was the first ever evidence of actual brain rewiring in poor readers.

Failure Free Reading is a nationally recognized reading comprehension program for students truly struggling to learn how to read with meaning and expression. Failure Free Reading is particularly strong with students who don't get phonics or read aloud with little or no comprehension.

“Four Facts about Phonics”

Reading Researchers have found that:

1. 3 out of 10 students don’t easily understand phonics.

2. Phonics is painfully slow to teach.

3. Phonics is not necessary in learning to read.

4. One reading approach - which actually taught over 75 million students to read with full comprehension - never taught a single phonic lesson.

Two Instructional Options: In‑Person or Distance Learning

Failure Free Reading Online Software Adds the Power of Video Modeling and Instruction to Reading Comprehension and Vocabulary Instruction

Failure Free Reading is proud to announce that it has extended the power of online video modeling and audio instruction to teach chronically struggling students to read - nonreaders included.

Studies have shown that both VM and VSM have positive outcomes on target skills and behaviors (Cihak & Shrader, 2009)

Failure Free Reading Online provides students, parents and educators with a diverse library of online instructional modeling videos and other online multi-sensory reading comprehension and vocabulary resources such as:

reinforcement activities
spelling software
close reading
word order
and much more!

Hundreds of video modeling reading lessons with thousands of multi-sensory reinforcement activities make teaching and learning so much easier!

Author and Developer, Dr. Joe Lockavitch states the research is clear:

“adding video modeling and instruction online software programs benefits both teacher and student by adding flexibility, fun and reducing stress by eliminating the need for one on one instruction

which can cause a student to become unnecessarily burdened by the need to overcome this stress and anxiety before they can focus on what is being taught.”

Using Failure Free Reading Online video modeling and instruction in practice makes teaching and learning so much easier!

Because everything is visual and oral, nonreaders don’t have to know how to read to learn how to read with comprehension and expression from age or cognitively appropriate books.

Failure Free Reading Online benefits include: fun, reduced stress, teaching flexibility, a multi-sensory teaching approach, and the wide variety of ways it can be used within a teaching setting.

Teaching comes alive while chronically struggling student watch, learn, imitate and have fun watching its “real life” age-appropriate photos and stories.

Finally, an online intervention for overaged students that does not rely on computer screens and graphics that smack of dancing bears and bunny rabbits.

What Educators Across the Nation are Saying About Failure Free Reading:
  • "Failure Free has been a wonderful program for our students at West Lowndes Elementary. We have seen tremendous improvement and growth. Most of our students have increased one to two grade levels. Our students have become more excited about reading. Failure Free has truly made a difference." Katetria Harris, Read 180 Teacher. Columbus, MS
  • "I was flabbergasted at how well it worked. Two of my 5th graders had not progressed much in five years of school. In one year, they moved from DRA 4 to DRA 18, and Guided Reading Level D to K." Tania Fey, Behavior/Resource Teacher, Morningside Elementary, Comal ISD Texas
  • "I see progress in the students’ ability to read more fluently and to utilize contextual guessing as a reading strategy. This has really made a difference in the lives of my students." Special education teacher, Anne Arundel County MD
  • "L.P. is a 4th grade student with a disability of speech and language impaired. After 42 hours of instruction in Failure Free, he had an increase of 30 words correct per minute as measured by DIBELS benchmark assessments. His Sight Word Efficiency increased 19 percentage points on the TOWRE." Special Education Teacher
  • "One of my students, a virtual non-reader, is both ELL and LD. Her parents do not speak English. Prior to FFR she was made fun of because she couldn’t read. Now, she bugs me to get on the computer do FFR. She is very disturbed when she can’t do FFR. She is very motivated and has made great progress." Alexandria, a teacher in Mt. Vernon, NY at the end of a four-week trial evaluation
  • "This is the second year I have taught Failure Free. In the first year, my students demonstrated a 221% increase in their ability to comprehend, as measured by Maze (AIMSweb®) comprehension assessments. Every student has improved in his or her ability to read and comprehend. My students are enthusiastic about reading and eagerly participate in small groups. The stories are age appropriate and all of my students are able to relate to the stories. Above all, my students are more confident about their ability to read. I would recommend Failure Free to any school district that is seeking help for their most challenged readers." Hannah Saland, special education pullout teacher, Clayton Ridge Middle School, Guttenberg, IA
  • "I am writing this letter to inform you how well (our) students… are progressing... The students have developed confidence in their work and their confidence has translated into improvement in their other academic areas… I would recommend Failure Free to other educational institutions where the students are reading two or more levels below grade level. It’s worth the investment." Gloria Boyce, Reading Teacher, Carol and Frank Biondi School, Leake & Watts NY
  • "We began implementing Failure Free Reading about a year ago as a Tier 3 intervention. The program has proven to be effective in helping non-readers when everything else seemed to produce little to no results. Because of (this) success, special education teachers have started asking about… using the program... We have even had parents and community persons request the use of the program..." Angel Meeks, Curriculum Director, Holmes County MS
  • "Wow, what a difference it made! I chose three of my lowest fifth grade readers… These kids had almost given up on trying to learn to read. All three students improved on their reading. I saw a complete attitude change in these three students the very first day after they did the first lesson in the program… (they) couldn't wait to come to my class…This is a great intervention for the teacher to use who has used everything else with her non-readers and nothing is working with those students." Sara Jones, Special Education Teacher, Haysville (KS) Public Schools USD 261
  • "Failure Free Reading is an effective reading intervention for our students who have been resistant to phonics-based reading instruction. Within the first week of implementation, the students participating were excited they could read a story. They love to say they can read now." Reading Resource Teacher
