Online Speed Reading Course

Students who enroll in this newly redesigned online course can expect to increase their reading speed, improve comprehension and retention skills, and save time! Course registrants will have access to our Speed Reading software for a full year so they can continue to improve on their own after the course is complete.

The LC's Online 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 hands-on instruction and computer program exercises

  • Gaining 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.
