Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What Is The Children Learning Reading Program And How Does It Work?
Simply put, the Children Learning Reading Program aims to teach toddlers, young children and children of different ages how to read English fluently and fast. With a step by step approach, this program focuses on improving the fluency and diction of the child through utilizing three literary tools- synthetic phonics, phonemes, and blending.
After mastering the techniques taught in this program the child will be able to expertly divide any given word into units, and make the appropriate sounds for each phonic (unit). Then, they will be able to blend it all together to form a word. By the end of the course, the child will seamlessly read word after word fluently. In fact, they will have no trouble reading sentences, paragraphs, and pages worth of text.
This course comes with a plethora of resources, each of which is designed to get your child to understand and apply the concept of synthetic phonics and bring about a sense of phonemic awareness in them.
The Children Learning Reading Program is divided into two stages. Each stage comes with its own unique instruction ebook. Stage 1 contains 32 chapters, and Stage 2 contains 33 chapters. Stage 1 is also known as the “Foundation” level and you can order the Foundation Package separately for $39 from the official page here. Stage 1 and Stage 2 are available in the Standard or Premium packages and you can order these here.
Each chapter comes with its own exercises, stories and rhymes. The goal of all the chapters in Stage 1 is to introduce the various literacy concepts that will help your child to read fluently. They will learn the alphabet letters, as well as the sounds for each letter. They will learn how to speak simple words by using the concept of phonics and phonemes, and they will also learn how to blend the different sounds to form a word.
More importantly, they will be able to use these concepts to decode any words, regardless of their complexity. By the end of this stage, your child should be able to read printed text very well.
In Stage 2, the child will be taught more advanced concepts, one of which includes digraphs. (Digraphs are basically a combination of two consonants used to denote one phoneme. For example, (ch) in chair, (st) in stove, (wh) in whirl, or (sh) in shoe).
Because this stage is more advanced, so are the exercises, including the stories and rhymes. The goal here is to take what they have learned in the first stage, and to enhance their learning. By the end of this stage, your child should have mastered the art of reading fluently. He/she will be adept at pronouncing any length of word with ease.
Q: Why Does Children Learning Reading Program Work?
The main reason why the Children Learning Reading Program works is because it teaches strategies that have been scientifically proven to be critical in the development of a child’s reading skills. Research has repeatedly shown that phonemic awareness development is crucial for a child to be able to read and spell words. This is what this program aims to do.
Because the foundation that this program teaches reading with is so universal, any child, regardless of their age, can benefit from this course. The lessons are very simple, and intuitive, which means that it gradually progresses in terms of difficulty. This way the child can master each concept before going on to the next level. It is designed in a way that makes it very easy to follow, even for a toddler.
The stories, rhymes and exercises that accompany each lesson are incredibly fun to do, and are highly engaging for both the child and the parent. This will make sure that the child has no trouble paying attention during the class, and will actually look forward to the next session.
As long as your child can speak, you can use this course to teach them to read like a champ. The younger they start, the better, because once the child learns how to read, they will be able to read books to expand their knowledge and vocabulary starting at a very young age.
Lastly, the Children-Learning-Reading Program has been thoroughly tested with real kids and parents. This course actually allowed Jim Yang and his wife Elena to teach all of their children to read in just 12 weeks. As a parent himself, Jim’s determination to teach his own children how to read (even though they were toddlers) drove him to make the lessons super simple and short enough to not only hold the attention span of a small child, but powerful enough to make them learn the strategies to read fluently.
The system has been refined through the raising of Jim’s four children, and has helped thousands of other parents to teach their children to read as well. The results speak for themselves. You can click here and here, to watch videos showing how this course has perfected the reading skills of toddlers and children worldwide.
Q: Who Is The Children Learning Reading Program Designed For?
This course has been designed primarily with 2 to 6 year old's in mind. But that said, anyone older than 6 years of age will greatly benefit from this program as well. If your child has reading difficulties, or is behind in their reading levels, this course will definitely help. The reason why is because the concept you will learn in this course can be used by anyone to decode any word. By using the lessons in this course to develop your child’s phonemic awareness, they will be able to look at any word, and speak it out loud correctly.
This course can be used by toddlers, preschoolers, kindergartners, elementary school children, or any young child. In fact, Jim Yang, the creator of this program, taught his four kids how to fluently read when they were just under 3 years of age.
Q: Why Should I Use The Children Learning Reading Program Instead Of Other Programs?
The majority of reading programs use what is known as a “whole language” approach or “look and say”. This is just a “sight words” approach making kids memorize some word shapes. This is ineffective especially for kids who cannot remember well.
The Children Learning Reading Program does not require a child to remember words so it’s easier and much more fun which creates an incentive for the child to progress to the next lesson.
Q: Can I Use The Children Learning Reading Program To Teach Older Children To Read?
The lesson plans are designed specifically with young children in mind, which means that they are very simple and short, to keep it interesting and engaging for a young child. It is the same with the stories, and rhymes that come with each lesson. That said, the basic fundamentals this course teaches can be used by any child. The techniques they will learn will train them to use the power of phonics, phonemes, and other techniques to advance their reading skills.
Q: My Child Is Aged 6, 7, 8 or older And Is Behind In Their Reading. Is It Too Late To Start With This Program?
No. It is never too late to start. Although this program is primarily designed for 2-6 year old's, the important reading concepts that this course teaches can be used by a child of any age. Jim has personally used this program with many 6 and 7 years old's, and has seen dramatic improvements in their reading capabilities. The important thing to take away from this is that the program teaches the proper methods for reading and decoding text, and that works for everyone, irrespective of their age.
Q: How Much Time Do I Need To Spend When Teaching My Child To Read Using The Children Learning Reading Program?
We recommend spending at least 10-15 minutes each day with your child, helping them to complete their lessons. In most cases, you will find that 15 minutes of reading practice is enough because small children usually have a short attention span. That said, consistency is very important. Make sure you do the lessons daily with them.
In just 12 short weeks, you will see a massive difference in your child’s reading skills. Every day there will be noticeable improvement, which has been proven to provide enough motivation for both the kids and the parents to keep going and continue with the lessons.
Q: Can I Spend Longer Than 10-15 Minutes Each Day On This Program?
Yes, you definitely can. We have found that most young kids are very curious and highly motivated to want to learn how to read. Since the chapters are highly engaging, you might actually find them expressing their desire to finish more chapters in just one session. As a parent, if you do have the time, we highly recommend that you spend more than 15 minutes with your child teaching them the important reading skills laid out in the program, so that they can become fluent readers fast.
That being said, please make sure that the sessions are fun for the children. The best way to teach kids how to read is to make it so enjoyable that they may not even realize that they are doing some kind of task.
Q: Does My Child Need To Be Familiar With The Alphabet Before Starting The Children Learning Reading Program?
No. the only requirement we have before starting with this program is that your child should be able to speak. The course is divided into two stages. Among the many different things the child will learn in the first stage is learning the alphabet, along with the sounds corresponding to each letter.
Q: My Child Is Older Than 6 And Has Difficulty Reading. Is He Too Old To Use The Children Learning Reading Program?
No. The foundation that this program is built upon makes it suitable for children of any age. This course helps the students, regardless of their age, learn the basic fundamentals of decoding and reading the words expertly. They use the mechanics of synthetic phonics and phonemic awareness to do so. This helps the child take a word, sound it out, then blend it to form a complete word.
Any child can utilize this method to develop their reading skills to match their grade level. In most cases, by the time that the child has completed the program, the chances are that their reading skill will be far more advanced than their current grade level.

I’m really interested in your program, I would just like to ask whether it works with other languages or is designed for English language only.
The program is designed for teaching reading in English, although alphabet
based languages should follow a similar pattern of phonetic reading. But for another
language, you’ll need to figure out all the different sounds represented by the letters
and letter combinations in that language.
Does your program work ok with MAC computers for the downloads?
Yes Sarah, the CLR program works just fine with Mac computers.
Is Children reading and learning good for 14 months old? My daughter started to talk a little.
Hi Ami D, Your child needs to be able to speak more clearly before you start the CLR program with her. This normally happens around age 2.
I am very excited about my premium package purchase. I was able to save the PDFs to iBooks on my iPad Air 2. However, I can’t seem to do the same with the video and audio files. There is no save option, just open.
Could someone from the support team kindly assist?
Hello Marcel, and thanks for your comment,
The customer support team of the Program sent you an Email. We hope that your Problem is solved now.
