The LC's Speed-Reading Program can help you improve the efficiency and effectiveness of your reading by:

  • Increasing your reading speed
  • Training in speed reading techniques via face-to-face instruction and computer program exercises
  • Gaining hands-on instruction with techniques and strategies to support your reading comprehension

Topics covered include foundations of speed-reading techniques, peripheral vision, phrase reading, how students learn best, and comprehension and memory strategies.
