How is this speed reading program different?

Difference #1 - Reading Speed

This is not a gimmick course.  Many "speed reading" programs will show participants how to "view" 3,000 words per minute or faster, which is useful for researching or reviewing material, but it is not reading - it is scanning. To read beyond 1,000 words per minute requires readers to skip words; when readers skip words, they lose comprehension. 

As you know, simply having a general understanding of the reading material is not always sufficient.  Technical materials, for example, require a slower, more comprehensive reading approach during certain sections.  Our reading methods actually work like a car accelerator pedal - participants will learn how to adjust their reading speed to match the material (and their personal and professional deadlines). 

In fact, by the end of this program participants will see a dramatic improvement in their reading speed and comprehension.  As they continue to apply our reading methods, they should be able to exceed 3,000 words per minute for "light" reading or research work, and 600 - 900 words per minute for more challenging material.  

The current reading speed average for adults is about 250 words per minute.

Difference #2
- Reading Comprehension

A fast reading speed improves efficiency only if the reader comprehends the material the first time through.  Therefore, this program involves a heavy focus on reading comprehension.  We will show participants how to structure each reading assignment to ensure the pertinent information is “locked” in their head for quick comprehension and fast recall.

To help participants immediately apply this new skill, they will actually practice our reading strategies on their own work-related documents (during the training class portion of this program).
