The Vantage Reading Program has changed over time in very significant ways. Our ongoing research has helped us develop deeper and deeper understandings of the connection between vision and reading success. As this happened we changed our programs to correlate with our findings. This continues to this very day.
One major change is in the name of our programs. In the beginning our programs were under the umbrella called the “Bonding the Senses” programs. This umbrella of programs is now called “Vantage Reading” programs. All were directly developed by Mrs. Alice Ross and this is still the case.
Our early work tied sensory integration with our vision therapy programs. We have found the programs are more successful and take much less time without this connection.
The following independent study with autistic students was done when the program was called the“Bonding the Senses” program. For continuity we have left this title in this copy of the study.
