Without further ado, let’s start 🙂
What Exactly Is Reading Head Start?
Created by Sarah Shepard, a mother and an English teacher for more than a decade, “Reading Head Start” is a simple-to-follow system that will assist parents in teaching their children, regardless of age, to read flawlessly in as fast as 30 days.
Sarah explains she put together this reading system because of her 6-year-old son, who received an unsatisfactory grade in English. It was a horrific and embarrassing moment for her as an English teacher, so she persistently dug up research studies to learn a better way of teaching English to her son.
She came up with this solution:
Instead of letting your child read the word as a whole, you should break up the letter of each word and then teach the sounds of each of letter that composes the word.
To make everything as simple as possible, Sarah Shepard divided her Reading Head Start system into four levels. On each level, you’ll receive different reading videos, exercises, interactive games, and workbooks. And as a reward, your child will have a ‘Reading Head Start Certification’ once he or she completes a level.
In addition to the main levels, the Reading Head Start program also comes with the following bonuses at no extra cost:
Bonus #1: Incredible Reading Shortcuts – Here, you’ll find out highly effective reading shortcuts, which will help lock words into your child’s mind. This will make it simpler for your child to progress to more advanced words.
Bonus #2: ‘The Fun with Words’ book series – Sarah Shepard says she designed these books to be enjoyable while improving your child’s reading abilities.
Bonus #3: Interactive reading games – This online game series, which top academics supposedly designed, will allow your child to have fun while learning how to read.
This is just some of the things you can expect to get once you sign up for the Reading Head Start program. For more information about the main modules and the bonus items, please check the official website here.
Now, let’s discuss the pros and cons of Sarah Shepard’s reading system…
The Pros And Cons Of Reading Head Start
It’s A User-Friendly Reading System
Just sit beside your child (or children), click the play button, and allow the videos to teach you what to do next. You can go through each lesson at your own pace, and you just need to spend 15 minutes per day, thrice a week until your child completes all four levels.
It Makes Learning To Read Fun
With the interactive games and guides, we’re quite sure your child would enjoy while learning to read. You might even enjoy it, too. Your life is going to be simpler if you don’t have to force your child to sit down and learn to read because he or she is having fun.
Seems That It Works As Promised
Based on our research online, it seems that the Reading Head Start program lives up to its promise. There are also text and video testimonials by Sarah’s satisfied clients that you can easily watch on YouTube or at the official website.
$1 Trial Offer Is Available
So, you don’t have the extra cash, but you’re willing to stretch your budget if this system proves to be effective. The good news is you can take this on a test drive for 3 days for just $1. That’s definitely a great deal for us.
Note: After 3 days, you’re going to be charged $37 per month if you don’t cancel after the trial period. If you want, you can skip the trial period and choose the other two packages which offer a great value for money: $16 per month for one year and a lifetime access for $297 (one-time payment).
365-Day Triple Guarantee
If for whatever reason this reading system didn’t impress you, you’re free to ask for a full refund within one year after your purchase.
In simple words, this guarantee makes the Reading Head Start system a risk-free choice…
It Requires Time, Commitment, and Patience
If you’re too busy or just plain lazy, this isn’t for you. You need to go through this reading system with your child for 15 minutes per night, 3 times a week. If this sound too demanding for you, then it would be better if you keep your money and skip this.
Difficult To Find More Information About The Author
Unfortunately, Sarah Shepard is also the name of a bestselling American author, who wrote the Pretty Little Liars series and The Lying Game series. (The only difference is you spell her Sarah without the H at the end.) Thus, when we tried Googling about Reading Head Start’s author, the search results were pretty much about the other “Sara Shepard.”
It’s An Online-Based Reading System
And that means you need to have a reliable internet connection to take full advantage of this system. All the workbooks, games, videos, and exercises are in the member’s area.
The good thing about this is your child can learn how to read whenever and wherever using a smart phone, tablet, laptop, or personal computer…
The Bottom Line
True. There are other programs, which teach children of all ages to read. However, based on all the information contained in the course and the very affordable price that Sarah Shepard offers, we truly believe “Reading Head Start” is worth checking out.
This is no secret that reading at an early age could help your child become successful later in life, and you can find many articles and studies online that will confirm this. The Reading Head Start system will not only help you achieve this goal, but it will also allow you to do so in a fun and enjoyable way.
Of course, this system is not perfect and there’s no 100% guarantee that your child would learn to read brilliantly by the end of one month or reverse disorders present at birth such as dyslexia.
In general, if you don’t have at least 15 minutes of spare time, if you don’t have the patience to teach children, or if you believe that reading at an early age doesn’t determine your child’s success, then the Reading Head Start might not be for you.
On the other hand, if you love your child and want to give him or her a headstart in life, if your child is struggling in school because of poor reading skills, or if you already tried other programs and didn’t get the results you wanted, then the Reading Head Start course is a great option for you.
Moreover, with the $1 trial offer and the 365-money back guarantee, we don’t see any risk giving Sarah Shepard’s reading system a try…
Well, that’s it for this review of the Reading Head Start program. We really hope this provided you with enough information to make a wise decision.
We wish you and your child all the best!
Rita and Alex 🙂
