About Us
Many times, readers may think that there is something wrong with their own reading capabilities.  

In fact, readers may have been taught to use error-causing strategies and the readers are very good at using the very bad strategies they have been taught.

Those who can read are free to succeed!

About Our Founder:
The Freedom Reading Foundation literacy program was developed by Pat Doran M.Ed, a literacy expert and leader in the field of reading instruction. As an experienced educator for more than 45 years, she has devoted her life to working with underprivileged students and adults who struggle with limited reading skills. She has seen what does and does not work in literacy education.

Pat Doran, M.Ed developed "Phonics Steps to Reading Success: A Fast-Paced Word-Attack System for Developing and Improving Reading Skills" - a dynamic, fast, efficient, cost-effective reading education program for improving reading skills at all levels. It is based on the most current scholarly research and has proven to be highly successful, especially for older learners.  She is the founder and president of Freedom Reading Foundation, Inc. and Edu-Steps, Inc. 


About Our Reading Program:
Freedom Reading uses one of the most effective reading programs available. "Phonics Steps to Reading Success: A Fast-Paced Word-Attack System for Developing and Improving Reading Skills" is research based and proven to be effective for anyone, ages 9-99, who wants to improve their reading and spelling skills. 

Our program is so effective because it teaches students systematically to read synthetically, accurately blending sounds left to right.  With accurate reading, comprehension increases.

The program has proven effectiveness with:
Average readers
Struggling readers
Comprehension problems
Learning-disabled and at-risk students
English Language Learners (ELL)
Illiterate and functionally illiterate adults
Dyslexic readers who have never had explicit phonics 

Explicit Phonics is proven to be the best way to learn to read!
