“Students must learn to read by 3rd grade, because from 4th grade on they must read to learn,” says Dr. Joseph A. Sandford, neuropsychologist and President of BrainTrain. “TNT Reading Tutor provides a fun, motivating way for students to work at their own pace through whatever obstacles or challenges they face in becoming good readers. Now all students can discover the joy of reading.”
TNT Reading Tutor focuses not only on reading; it also presents game-like exercises to build attention, thinking skills, and working memory – cognitive abilities critical for success in all academic areas. TNT’s unique “test ‘n’ train” design helps you determine exactly what your child needs to concentrate on, then creates a structured, customized learning plan tailored directly to his specific needs. Based on over twenty years of reading research and featuring over 1000 exercises, TNT Reading Tutor teaches the skills that have the greatest impact on a child’s ability to learn to read – letter recognition, phonemic awareness, phonics, mental processing speed, auditory discrimination, working memory, and attention.
TNT Reading Tutor features a unique reward system – video games! The software rewards success on the exercises with two-minute, entertaining video game breaks. While the child perceives the game break rewards as fun adventures, the games also serve the serious purpose of building brain power by requiring him to pay attention and to actively exercise his working memory.
An evaluation study supports TNT’s potential effectiveness in significantly enhancing reading skills for students, grades K-2. In this study, students who excelled the most using TNT scored the highest on independent educational tests, advancing an average of two grade levels after only 4.3 hours of TNT training.
TNT Reading Tutor can be purchased as a digital download or in DVD format for $49.95. It is licensed for 2 players for one year and comes with a 30-day money back guarantee. For more information or to download a free trial version of TNT Reading Tutor visit: http://www.tntreading.com
BrainTrain was founded in 1989 by Joseph A. Sandford, Ph.D. Before becoming a clinical neuropsychologist, Dr. Sandford was a professional computer programmer, so when he began his practice working with head-injured and ADHD clients, it was natural for him to perceive how the computer could be an indispensable tool for helping them. His vision of using the computer to improve people’s lives through cognitive development continues to define BrainTrain’s mission. The software Dr. Sandford has helped to create is used daily in all fifty states and in over fifty other countries.
