Hello everyone, its Annie Fitzgerald here & thank you for stopping by and taking time for reading this Reading Head Start review.
It is important to know one thing about me; I N-E-V-E-R review any product or program unless I get it, go through it, and make sure it worth YOUR time and money.
That is certainly the same case with RHS, and now I am going to share my experience with you in this review. I’ve gone through its videos, PDFs, member area and I feel you will get a lot from this review.
Let’s start this program.
What is Reading Head Start?
I am glad that you have asked, I got it so I can show you.
This is the step-by-step program that gives you videos, pdfs, visuals, interactive games, and training worksheets to help you in teaching your child to read quickly and efficiently.
Reading Head Start is created by Sarah Shepard, an English Teacher and the mother of three. She has done detailed research when teaching her children to pick up reading skill and now she wants to pass the information to other parents.
Reading Head Start can be used by children from the age two through the age of six. Even this program can be used by a kid who just started speaking. To back up her work, Sarah included a testimonial from a mother who is teaching her 16-month old son to read with the help of this system.
This program is broken into four levels, and each level contains videos, worksheets, pdfs, and interactive games. Once your child completes any level he also receives a completion certificate that boosts up confidence.
All you need is just 15 minutes a night, 3 days a week until 30 days to see improvement in your child’s reading ability.
Sarah Shepard (creator of this program) is an English teacher who has a passion for helping other parents to teach their children to read from an early age instead of relying on the decades-old education system.
To make this a complete no-brainer deal, Sarah is offering 3 days trial for just $1 and afterward it is $37 / month. I feel this is a good deal to try out this program and see if it is working for you.
What Are The Techniques Used Inside Reading Head Start Member Area?
I’m sorry I was told not to reveal detailed info about these techniques. All I can say is, these techniques are scientifically proven to improve child’s ability to read and these are created by Sarah who has years of experience in teaching.
Here is a brief overview of these techniques
Psychological Fortitude – This technique will help in developing your child’s self-confidence and self-esteem
Positive Social Interaction – This technique will develop social skill in your child so that he able to communicate with people of all ages without any problem.
Linguistic Development and Communication Skill – This technique will enhance the communication skill and language skills of your child.
Optimal Neurological Growth – This technique will help in the brain development of your child.
What It Has To Offer? [Quick Summary]
It is difficult to summarize this comprehensive program into one review that is why I decided to give you a quick overview of the materials that you will be getting in this program.
These step-by-step Lesson plans are provided to you to teach your child to read words. These lesson plans can be performed at home or at the classroom.
You will get an accurate and step-by-step plan that will improve your child reading capability in a fun and interesting way.
Sarah’s Reading Head Start contains lots of interesting and entertaining worksheets that will keep your child learning in an interesting way.
These worksheets are colorful, high-quality, themed, and strategic that will keep your child engage and improve his memory.
Another important material you will be getting from this plan is the short passages that your child will read, and they are based on words mentioned in the program.
These printable flashcards were very popular in the past because they offer a great way to adopt reading skills. These flashcards will help children to memorize new information for centuries.
How Much It Is?
One of the important factors for most people will going to be PRICING.
When I first saw the pricing it looked somewhat over-priced. But after going through the video-presentation, I figured out this program is correctly priced.
This is the high-quality reading program created by an English teacher who has years of experience in teaching.
At the time of writing this Reading Head Start review, Sarah has reduced the price of lifetime access and now you can obtain lifetime access for the price of one-year membership ($197). If you are a teacher or you have two or more children between ages 2 to 6, then you should consider this option.
Alternatively, you can pay just $1 to get three-day access and then continue the $37 /month offer.
Do I Love Everything About Reading Head Start Program?
You have probably got the idea, I really like this program, and I feel this is a very beneficial program for parents.
I like the way Sarah Shepard provides instructions and videos so that parents will know what and why they are teaching to their children. I feel this is one of the best program explaining to children how to read.
However, there are two areas where this program falls short. These are surely not the ‘deal-breaker.’ I feel Sarah should work on these two issues.
Mechanical Nature Of The Program
The first area is the mechanical nature of this program. Although, this program demonstrated in a great way, but this program fails to develop the ‘love’ of reading in the children.
I strongly believe that it is ‘love’ for reading that can help children to pick up reading skill quickly rather than a mechanical process. If you decide to use this program then make sure you use lots of amazing bright stories with your children.
You can increase the collection of good children reading books, Amazon and eBay have a good variety of them.
Children should grow up with ‘love’ for reading. If it happens then children will get the natural motivation to complete stories books and it is possible to do so with the help of techniques provided inside Reading Head Start program. If you are thinking about strategies for strugglers, then this technique you should not miss out!
Sometimes it happens when children struggle with Sarah’s strategies, they can’t sit properly. If it happens with your kid, then don’t worry. It happens with many children.
The best way to cope with this problem is dropping phonic lessons for a while and use phonic games instead that contains phonic sounds your child is already familiar with.
You can hide phonic flashcards in different parts of the house, or play a memory game with them, or you can look for interesting games online. Once your child finds any game interesting, you can use it as a reward for completing Sarah’s strategy.
Outdated Delivery Method
The second area in which Sarah has to work is the delivery of the content material. After you complete the payment procedure, you will receive a download link in your email.
When I access the program, I feel content arrangement is not done as it needs to be in this modern world. The content arrangement looks outdated and it needs a complete redesign.
However, the content is good, so I urge you to pass this slight issue.
It seems like Sarah is expert in teaching children to read with her strategy, but when it comes to content delivery, she fails. However, I can forgive her on this.
In the end, I would like to say that this is the perfect program for parents who like to teach their children to start reading. Teachers can also use this program in their classroom to fast-track the reading process of their students.
I have gone through the program and all I can say is that this program can give children a solid foundation to start reading than most teachers can.
Sarah has done an excellent job in setting up this reading program. It clearly shows she has both passion and training to help parents in making sure their children adopt reading skills in early stages.
A well-set reading program like this is a must for any parent. I have previously reviewed many free and paid reading programs – but Reading Head Start by Sarah Shepard stands on top.
The final thing I want to remind you about this program is pricing. The current offer $197 for lifetime access + lifetime updates seems reasonable for parents who have more than two children and for teachers. Oh, before I forget, you will also get 365 days money-back guarantee.
And don’t forget for just 1 USD you can access Sarah Shepard’s Reading Head Start for three days to check the quality of the program and then continue $37 per month membership.
That’s was all from this review
Thanks, and best of luck.
