Stairway to Reading

Teach Your Child to Read

If used properly, the materials on this page are guaranteed to help children who are struggling with reading in school. Read the introduction for instructions.

To make returning to this material easier, bookmark this page in your favourites so that you can bypass the contact information page on future visits.


Our free placement and diagnostic test will determine your child's approximate reading level and identify areas of weakness. It will also show you where your child should begin our reading program.

Test (in introduction on pages 2 & 3)


Stairway to Reading, although designed for children who have already had some instruction, can be used with preschoolers with the minor adaptations noted on page one of the Introduction.

Supplemental Information


Additional practice is available at no charge at Starfall

A Yahoo group is available where Stairway to Reading users can ask questions and exchange tips.
