The McOmber Reading Program is an enjoyable, user friendly program for beginning or struggling readers of all ages. The McOmber Program is designed for use in either a classroom or private tutoring setting. It works well in Pre-School, K-3 or homeschool classrooms, as well as resource or tutoring settings for struggling readers of all ages, including adults, ESL, dyslexic and aphasia students. This program is designed so that by following the step-by-step instructions in each reading book anyone can help the student find success.

The strength of the program lies in its gradual introduction of phonics concepts. Students begin with some of the simplest words and phonetic patterns in our language and gradually progress through the various phonetic combinations and language elements needed to be successful and independent readers.
