Summer Programs: Reading, Spelling & Math
Unlock Their Potential
The last two years have been tough, especially on the most vulnerable. Now more than ever, parents of children with learning differences must take control.

How Edublox Is Different...
Online does not mean impersonal. We developed our program over the last 30 years to work with each student individually. Our tutors get to know each learner and tailor their experience based on their abilities and progress using best practices.
More Than Orton-Gillingham
Edublox incorporates the best parts of Orton-Gillingham, while adding others – like cognitive training and orthographic mapping. Researchers from the University of Delaware performed a meta-analysis of Orton-Gillingham approaches and found only 40% performed better than the control.
Edublox takes a two-fold approach. One is to improve cognitive abilities such as attention, visual and phonological processing, rapid recall and memory. Cognitive abilities help us learn. Two is to address the student’s academic weakness — either reading or math.

Edublox Online Summer Programs cost between $2000 and $4800 USD depending on your desired level of commitment.
Edublox’s Summer Programs aim at helping students overcome learning obstacles and reach their full potential. The program is suitable for a variety of learning difficulties, including dyslexia, dysgraphia and dyscalculia.
An Edublox tutor meets with a student online daily for four one-hour sessions, Monday to Friday, for two, four, or six weeks. Half of each hour consists of cognitive training, while the other half is spent on tutoring: reading and spelling, or math. Each one-hour session is followed by a 15 or 30-minute break.
Our Summer Program is optimized for children aged between 7 and 16.
A certain degree of supervision by an adult helps keep students on task.
After about 15 to 20 hours on the program, you may notice an improvement in some non-academic areas. It may be that the student can organize their work better, is more attentive, or is able to express themselves more easily. At first, you may not be sure whether this is the result of Edublox or not.
After about 30 to 40 hours on the program, you should see some significant improvements in the student’s academics: reading and spelling, or math. They might remember more of what was said in class, spend less time to complete homework, study less but maintain the same marks for tests and exams, or attain higher (sometimes much higher) marks for tests and exams. At this point, one usually starts seeing an improvement in self-esteem.
It must be noted, however, that improvement is seldom gradual. When improvement becomes noticeable, it is usually sudden. After this initial — and usually clearly visible — intellectual jump, it frequently happens that the student finds himself on a plateau again, followed by another leap forward. This pattern can repeat itself many times.
The above scenario could be described as a “staircase effect”. However, one may occasionally also see a “snowball effect”, meaning that the initial progress is slow but as the student continues, their progress accelerates.
