History of Tiger Tuesday

The Tiger Tuesday Reading Program is the brainchild of Dr. Linda Bress Silbert, known as “Dr. Linda” from her widely-read weekly column. Developed over a period of almost 30 years of working with children and youth who are struggling academically, the components of the program are based on research-proven common-sense strategies Dr. Linda and her husband Dr. Al have used to help literally thousands of kids and their parents overcome anxiety, attention deficits, and learning disabilities on their way to academic success.
