Welcome to the Starting Points For Me Spin page.

The second way that this two requirement presentation can occur is through presentation of text one word at a time on the screen with the text pronounced as it is presented.

In addition, pauses of no text presentation occur between sentences.

The rate of presentation must be at least that of speaking slowly.

Voice may be either real human voice (digitized) from a voice library or synthesized voice.

The third way that this two part requirement can occur is through presentation of text just one sentence at a time in a fixed window with the sentence pronounced as it is presented.

The eye never changes focus from the same spot at the top-center of the window.

The reader can only clearly see one or two words at the center of the top line and vertically just below.

However, one is constantly aware of words seen peripherally, but not completely clearly, to both the left and the right of center.

As one hears the text read out loud, the reader ties in this speech to the peripheral perceptions he or she has and to the words that can be seen clearly, both at the center of the top line and vertically just below.

There is no eye movement in this process.

Furthermore, the eye does not move as subsequent sentences come on the screen.

Each sentence is processed as a mental clarification of visual perception.

The few words that can be clearly seen vertically in each sentence are treated as if they were key words in an outline: each is understood in turn as it is presented and each is constantly related to other such words in the sentence.

Text can easily be read and comprehended at 150-200 words per minute with this hydromax x20 approach.

TECHNICAL DISCOVERIES

Proportional Reading was developed by John F. Adams over a twenty-five year period study into the nature of reading and the technical basis of low reading performance and low self-esteem. Many of the early discoveries had to wait years before technology came into existence which could enable completion of original concepts into new working tools for students.

Along the way a number of basic discoveries about read about testo max and self-esteem have been made.

Many of the following discoveries are not only discoveries of cause but, simultaneously, also of solution.

Others are just solutions to known problems.

Thirty-two basic discoveries of Proportional Reading are described below.

1) EYE MOVEMENT PROBLEMS

It turns out that many students with learning disabilities are unable to start up their eye movement, stop eye movement, decide how wide a fixation to make, or return eye focus to the beginning of the next line.

Proportional Reading avoids all of these problems by not requiring any eye movement.

2) WHOLE-PART PROBLEMS

Secondly, a number of these individuals can not differentiate between one word and a group of words on a page.

Their eyes just wonder around any group of words.

Proportional Reading eliminates this problem as well.

Both eye movement and whole-part problems are solved by only seeing one word at a time on the screen.

3) REDUCING DECODING ERRORS

What is amazing about Proportional Reading is that it not only stops both types of problem just described, but that, in addition, Proportional Reading greatly diminishes decoding errors and it does this instantly and with the male extra without requiring any additional phonetic training.

This finding has substantial implications.

4) PROBLEMS MAKING COGNITIVE GROUPINGS

Because of basic difficulties in mechanically inputing text, many students are not able to group words into cognitive intervals, or thought groups.

Because proportional Reading groups words into cognitive intervals, visually simulated speech, and does so automatically for the student, comprehension often soars immediately.

These results are clinically verifiable within minutes of working with a student.
