While working and researching at the University of Illinois, Dr. Alexander Bannatyne and a team of experts dissected the English language into small “learning bits”.
They identified tens of thousands of these small learning bits that people acquire while listening, thinking, responding, reading and writing. These learning bits are identified in small children as well as people learning a new language as they first begin to communicate, and then later begin to read and write.
Dr. Bannatyne then re-organized these thousands of learning bits to create a learning ladder where students can pick up reading and writing quickly that fits in concert with the psycholinguistic processes of the brain during language acquisition.
The end result was a series of easy to follow, step-by-step workbooks that guide students through reading and writing process. The program works extremely fast in the most efficient way possible as students are brought up to a 6th grade reading level at minimum. Faster learners often post much higher levels. Results in the speed of completion will vary depending on student abilities; slower learners pick it up easily and naturally, while gifted students pick it up even faster.
