The students were tested before and after to confirm the method’s effectiveness. There was. However, one problem no one knew how to solve.

His methods soon
became recognized, spreading as popularity grew
amongst adults and children. Reading Genius now has
well over 100.,000 students, of which 10,000 Ed has
personally trained, including people at institutions
such as the US Air Force Academy, The US Naval Postgraduate School, Xerox, Hewlett Packard, National Semiconductor, Youth-at-Risk organization and many others worldwide.
