“RAM centers on the personal and visual aspect of teaching that works so well for children experiencing Autism. Just as social stories and visual cues help my daughter to understand different situations and expectations, RAM has utilized those same principles in teaching my daughter how to read. There is nothing more rewarding than hearing your child, who has struggled with traditional methods, read entire sentences and books!”
Kelly Dempsey, Kindergarten Teacher and Parent
“I have used Reading About Me with some students with special needs in my classroom when more traditional reading approaches were not working and have seen amazing results. RAM has helped struggling students get started down the path of becoming readers.”
Cara Taylor, Teacher, K-1 class
