Remedia Turns 40; Acquires Garlic Press

Remedia Publications, a company that provides skill-building educational materials to teachers, speech pathologists, curriculum specialists and parents, will celebrate its 40th anniversary this year. In 1978, two special education teachers founded the company to develop products to meet the needs of their struggling students. Since then, Remedia Publications has been dedicated to developing activity books, storybooks, flash cards, games, software and ebooks that focus on building basic skills. They offer practical solutions and curriculum supplements that help busy teachers work effectively with students who have learning differences like ADD, ADHD, dyslexia, speech and language delays, autism and more.

The award-winning materials are effective by design. The type font used is large compared to other books, and the art is simple, but not juvenile, so it appeals to all ages yet doesn’t distract. Page layouts are also simple, and skill specific so students – especially reluctant learners – are not overwhelmed.

Remedia, based in Scottsdale, Arizona, recently announced its acquisition of Garlic Press, a 44-year-old company also begun by a teacher, Stan Collins. The company’s first product was a book Stan had written to help struggling substitute teachers in his school district. Since then, Garlic Press has produced quality content for students of all ages studying math, language arts, literature, sign language, Braille and more. They are available now exclusively from Remedia, reports Liz Mullen, Remedia’s director of sales. “We are confident that that their materials will be a terrific fit in our product line,” she says.
