— Dr. Bradley Peterson, Director, Institute for the Developing Mind, USC“All three of my children report that they ‘love Reading Kingdom because it is a lot of fun.’ In fact, with adorable animal characters and engaging activities, they often don’t even realize that it’s a learning program. They consider it to be a fun game that they are ‘playing’. And since it is a customized program it is adaptable to their particular needs. As a mom and an educator, I feel a great sense of pride observing my children actively engaged in this program as I watch their confidence soar when they “master” a skill…In my opinion, what makes Reading Kingdom an exceptional program for use with my children is that it expands on the traditional phonics method to teach words that cannot be sounded out phonemically (the majority of words in the English language). In fact, my six year old son has wisely questioned me in the past asking, “Why can’t I sound out so many of the words in my book…that doesn’t make sense?” With Reading Kingdom…..learning to read finally “makes sense” to him.” –Maureen Ruble, homeschooler
“The Reading Kingdom is the answer to my prayers. As a homeschooler, I was desperate and determined to find materials to help my son read and comprehend better. Dr. Blank’s methods proved to be just what I was looking for. Everything she offers worked and was so easy to do! In very little time my son became a strong confident reader.”
— Colleen Dillon, homeschooler
Reading Kingdom teaches students to read and write with comprehension at a 3rd grade level (Lexile 750). It is the program that we recommend for mainstream students. Reading Kingdom’s innovative techniques are extremely effective because they are based on a new “Phonics-PLUS” six skill model of reading instruction and do not rely solely on phonics-based decoding instruction which is problematic because most words in English cannot be sounded out.

— Dr. Suzanne Goh, MD, Harvard University
“ASD Reading has transformed our relationship with our daughter, Kate. Its reading and writing programs helped her develop critical communication and problem solving skills. Now Kate reads and spells at or above grade level and we can ‘talk’ with her about her interests and feelings via writing. It has allowed us to recognize her true potential.”

ASD Reading is a patented, research-based method for teaching students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and other significant learning disabilities to read, write and comprehend at a 3rd grade level (Lexile 750). Current reading education relies on methods that do not work for students on the spectrum with the result that the majority never gain the ability to read with fluency or understanding. However, the innovative content and methods of ASD Reading enable students to achieve success – even when they are non-verbal (i.e., non-speaking).
• You can find some information and videos about the autism program Dr. Blank created at Columbia University here.
• You can find a number of articles relating to Dr. Blank’s research on teaching students with Autism here.
