Saccadic fixation is a keystone visual skill defined as the jump eye movements
necessary for reading.

These micro jump eye movements are a result of the simultaneous and coordinated use of 12 different extra-ocular muscles, 4 intra-ocular muscles, and 4 separate cranial nerves. If these muscles are not working together, they can be trained using proven remediation techniques to work together more efficiently.

Early detection is obviously the key to getting children on track for successful reading; persons as young as 3 and as old as 103 have been screened for saccadic fixation.

The Committee has developed, adapted*, and implemented the Read Between the Lions Saccadic Fixation Screening and Remediation Regimen for Reading Skills (RBTL).

The ultimate goal of the RBTL program is to provide a means to first of all identify a lack of saccadic fixation through screening and secondly to help achieve saccadic fixation through a remediation regimen using repetitive focusing techniques.

Read Between the Lions is being used in elementary schools in the Washoe County School District in Reno with proven results.

Screening and remediation documents are available below.
