Personalized
For Each Student

A lot of students struggle because the way they’re being taught is just not clicking.

Traditional reading programs leave more than 30% of students behind. Children tend to learn best when they are playing, engaged, and physically active. That is why Active Reading Center exists.
Every child deserves to be taught in a way that works for them.

Reading Strategies
for Success

We have over 60 proven multi-sensory strategies to teach children to read. We personalize every lesson for each student. We’re trusted by professionals, with nearly 50% of our students referred by a pediatrician, neuropsychologist, or school resource specialist. With our powerful Reading Revolution® methodology and passionate, highly-trained instructors we’ve helped thousands of students become confident readers.

“I have referred students to the Active Reading Center over the past 17 years. This program is effective with students with learning disabilities, most notably dyslexia, and results in significant improvement over a relatively short period of time. Children respond well to the multi-sensory interactive teaching methods at the center.”
