Master The Code© Reading Program

Master the Code© (MTC©) is an innovative reading and spelling program founded on the latest available research in reading intervention. Combined with PACE© (Processing and Cognitive Enhancement©), your child will not only have greatly improved basic reading skills, but also support for the cognitive skills required for efficient reading so that he/she has the opportunity to fully benefit from this and future reading interventions. Reading requires a solid foundational knowledge of the sound and letter patterns in the English language, as well as automatic access to this knowledge (i.e. the reader doesn’t have to stop and think about what he/she knows about sounds when reading). To create these two essentials in a struggling reader, the MTC© program uses a series of carefully sequenced steps to build a reliable reading system that meets a struggling reader at the point at which his/her knowledge gaps begin. These sequenced lessons are targeted at those readers:

  • just learning to read,
  • struggling to read at grade-level
  • older students who have developed poor strategies for reading (guessing at words for example)

The knowledge and skills learned in each lesson are frequently and intensely repeated until automaticity is achieved. This level of intensity also ensures deeply ingrained poor reading habits used by struggling readers are eradicated.  The MTC© method of drilling the code-symbol correspondence does not require the memorization of rules, sight words, and exceptions, thereby reducing what other reading programs require a student to memorize by about 75%. In addition MTC© will make your child a better speller.  Because the program is designed to teach a reader that certain letters and letter combinations stand for corresponding sounds in our language, your child will learn to read and spell at the same time.
