The Lions Crane Reading Program (LCRP) is an integrated program that combines both highly successful
programs and the latest computer technology to improve reading and writing proficiency. LCRP
addresses the alarming trend that so many students in the United States, and especially in New Mexico,
cannot read proficiently.
LCRP starts where the child or adult is with respect to current reading skills and proceeds from there.
While labeling is not necessary, LCRP has proven to work equally well with dyslexics, learning disabled,
and other students with learning and reading problems. LCRP is 95% to 98% successful at any grade level
when fully implemented.
If an individual child is having reading problems, the first step is to provide a detailed and comprehensive
eye examination using LCRP standards. Once it has been determined that the individual’s eyes are
functioning optimally, either with or without glasses, the individual’s reading proficiency is enhanced
through the use of drawing templates, gross motor training, computer assisted phonics, and computer
reading fluency enhancement programs.
