“Learning Dynamics Reading methodology is effective in holding the attention of beginning readers and makes reading instruction feel similar to play time.”
— Bonnie Grossen, Ph.D. University of Oregon
As one of the leading experts in early education, Bonnie Grossen studied the Learning Dynamic system and showed how it uses 6 key elements in teaching early reading. These same elements are also identified by the NICHD as KEY in teaching early reading.Read the University of Oregon Study
In the Learning Dynamics Reading System as identified by NICHD
- Teach direct phonemic awareness.
- Teach explicit letter-sound correspondence.
- Teach frequent letter-sound relationships systematically.
- Demonstrate how to sound out words with letter-sound blending.
- Use connected, decodable text to practice letter-sound relationship.

"The Learning Dynamics Reading System ... is as good or better than the best reading curriculum [teachers] have ever used."
— Ken Harvey, Ph. D. International Education Institute
The International Education Institute studied the Learning Dynamic Reading System among randomly selected students in Learning Dynamics preschools, as well as students using the program in 5 different kindergartens, tracking their progress and success. This study includes quotes from teachers praising the program.See the International Education Institute Study
