Welcome to Keda Publications
Reading, Spelling and Comprehension resources that work
I have dedicated 45 years of my life to developing methods to help people with reading difficulties. During years of unpaid scientific research in the 1970’s, I created a teaching system that provides a progressive solution to reading problems. I call this system ‘Toe By Toe’, as the learning stages and progress are too fine to be called ‘step by step’.
Since its publication in 1994, the Toe By Toe reading manual has taught over 500,000 children and adults how to overcome their reading difficulties.
My research into reading difficulties resulted in two more successful workbooks: Stride Ahead (students improve their reading fluency and comprehension) and Stareway To Spelling (students learn how to spell the 300 most used words).

Best-selling author of the Harry Potter books JK ROWLING considers Toe By Toe is
“One of the most important books I’ve ever signed. Learning to read represents a significant turning point in anyone’s life, and may be the one thing that makes a difference to help people in prison turn their lives around”
