New Blog by Dr. Robert C. Titzer,, Reveals the Science and the Secrets Behind Teaching Babies to Read

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - May 13, 2008) - Television news segments have recently showcased babies under the age of two with remarkable reading abilities. Not only is this natural, it is an essential part of development, says Dr. Robert C. Titzer, an expert on infant research and author of the prestigious new blog,

For over a decade, Dr. Titzer has been teaching babies all over the world to read. Now, through his weekly postings on, he reveals the science and secrets behind his proven methods, including what he calls "multi-sensory learning," a key component of early learning. "Multi-sensory learning employs as many of the baby's sensory systems as possible while they are experiencing the world around them. This includes looking, touching, listening, moving and tasting," says Dr. Titzer. "These methods have been used to teach babies as young as nine months to read."

On, Dr. Titzer offers engaging commentary on everything from his television appearances as an expert infant researcher, to parental questions and concerns, to utilizing multi-sensory learning techniques in the home, to the many benefits of early reading skills and much more. Dr. Titzer's recent television appearances range from Fox News to Scottish TV.

Dr. Titzer started teaching his own daughter Aleka to read when she was nine months old. By the age of four, she was reading at an 11th grade level. Dr. Titzer says the current practice of teaching reading skills starting at school age is too late. "Each child has only one natural window for learning language -- from about birth to about age four. During this period it is easier for them to learn any type of language including spoken, receptive, foreign and written."

Numerous infant studies prove that the earlier a child learns to read, the better he or she performs in school and later in life. Early readers have more self-esteem and are more likely to stay in school. According to a national panel of reading specialists and educators, most of the nation's reading problems could be eliminated if children began reading earlier.
