Offered the opportunity for training in Spalding – Renie continued to educate herself in the field of reading programs.

She enrolled in the Total Reading program which she used in school as well as with her son at home. The Total Reading program was a faster approach, but her son was still not able to encode and decode as fast as expected. He was placed into a special education class for reading as both the school and Renie continued to teach and reteach the basics of reading and writing (1st through 3rd grade)
