7. Perkins, A. (2009). A Study of the Effectiveness of Robert Titzer’s “Your Baby Can Read!” Multi-Sensory Reading Approach. University of West Georgia.
In 2009, Perkins conducted a completely independent longitudinal study using Your Baby Can Read. She reported babies learning to read when parents used the program consistently. The babies and children who rarely used the program did not learn to read according to their parents. Twin 20-month-olds learned to read according to the mom and Ms. Perkin’s informal observations. Perkins (p. 31): “The bottom line is that, when you implement the program correctly, “Your Baby Can Read!” is an effective means of teaching reading to infants and toddlers, along with making the child a lot more aware of the world in which he/she lives.”
