Welcome to Keda Learning
have dedicated 35 years of my life, developing methods to
teach people with reading difficulties how to read.
During years of unpaid scientific research in the 1970's, I
created a teaching system that provides a progressive solution
to reading problems. I called this system 'Toe By Toe',
as the learning stages are too fine to be called 'step by
Since its publication in 1994, the
Toe By Toe
reading manual has taught over 100,000 children and adults how
to overcome their reading difficulties. I have continued
my research, resulting in two more successful workbooks:
Stride Ahead, the
gateway to comprehension and
Stareway To Spelling, the gateway to writing.
A vital feature of my workbooks is that anyone who can read
can use them to improve the basic literacy skills of any child
or adult. Thus, you will learn how to teach reading and
spelling at the same time as bringing the precious gift of
literacy to someone you know."
