Subject: Improving an older students fluency, reading spped

Hi,
I'd like to find a software program that helps improve a student's reading speed. Student is dyslexic and on grade level with ability to read and comprehension, but reading speed is making it difficult to keep up with school work. Student is 15 and needs to prepare for college.

Thank You,

Hi,
Their are a lot of free programs available, here's one that he could try out:
http://www.spreeder.com/

They all use the same basic approach, where they flash words on the screen, and gradually increase the speed. Also move from single words to blocks of words.
