Joan Russell, Regional Director for Sylvan of Western Carolina said graphic novels help

Early readers by highlighting the importance of phonics instruction and laying a strong foundation in grades 1-3. For middle grades (3-8) we see the importance of comprehension and vocabulary. High schoolers are interested in preparing for college reading loads. They also need to look for straregies for reading fast.

There are free seminars at each location. Here is the schedule for Spartanburg
