It Starts Here.

It is my dream that all children be able to read, and think well of themselves. It brings me great joy to be able to share this program with you.

Welcome to Discover the Secrets of Reading by Mackie Ramsay, Ph.D. In over 45 years of teaching children Mackie has been looking for a program that teaches children how to read in the clearest, simplest, most fun and creative way; in a way that supports self-empowerment and embraces full potential. Finding a number of good programs but not one that incorporated everything she was looking for, she began writing and seeking a creative, talented artist and musician. Using a lifetime of feedback and techniques this system was created.

Introduction

I knew my mother was a wonderful teacher when she taught me to read when I was 3 years old. It took me several years after that to realize that she was a brilliant teacher. The way I learned this was that for years I witnessed a steady stream of children coming into our house with reading and/or behavioral problems and leave our house after just a few sessions proudly able to read and full of self esteem.

I have a vivid memory of being stretched out on the living room floor in a brilliant pool of sunlight reading my favorite book. I was six years old. I remember looking up in horror as the bully of my elementary school came stomping through my front door. I was frozen to the spot not understanding why he was there. Like many of the troubled kids from my school, he was coming to my mother for help. Within a few short sessions, upon which I spied from a safe distance, he was literally unrecognizable. He began to smile, to laugh, to play. Instead of tormenting other children on the playground he began to help them. He went on to become a compassionate leader in the school. This seemed to me a miracle, but actually became the norm when a child was fortunate enough to study with my mother.

I am eternally grateful for my mother’s brilliant teaching which has enabled me to follow my dreams. One of the highlights of my life has been working on this project with her. I am deeply inspired by her fulfilling her lifetime dream of giving this gift of “the secrets of reading” to the world.

I love you Mom.
