My name is Paule Marie Ebrahimi, Director of the Learning Resources of Miami Country Day School for the past ten years. I have been a special educator for over thirty years. I am writing on behalf of the MaxScholar Program, a program which we have adopted in our classes serving students with documented reading challenges. I fully endorse MaxScholar as an intervention model based on the Orton-Gillingham approach. As a researcher and developer of new methodologies and technology on the market, I have discovered that none are comparable to what MaxScholar provides. It is interactive, engaging, and meaningful to students in their learning. The content is captivating while addressing reading weaknesses in a way that doesn’t make students feel inadequate. I have personally seen results with my own granddaughter who made a two-year gain within four months of intervention, and which allowed her to advance to the next grade level. In my classrooms, we have seen tremendous growth in our children, especially with a few who were at risk of not returning to our school due to their delays in reading. After going through the modules, these students were able to move on to our high school. If you are considering the adopting of this program, I can assure that you will see value-added benefits within a short period of time which will exceed your expectations. Further, you will also observe students who are excited and motivated, and who now enjoy the gift of reading.
