Lexia For Home
Lexia provides a flexible, Web-enabled technology that is scientifically based and proven to increase reading proficiency. The program features a focused and intensive method for helping students maximize learning time for key reading skills, while providing educators with ongoing assessment and dynamic data to continually make differentiated instructional decisions. Scientifically based, peer-reviewed studies conducted in Texas, Massachusetts, Utah, Connecticut and the United Kingdom have consistently shown the effectiveness of Lexia’s products with multi-ethnic populations. Using Lexia Reading software, the achievement gains by study groups proved to be significantly superior to those achieved by control groups receiving equal amounts of traditional instruction and practice. In addition, a 2008 review of Lexia Reading by the Florida Center for Reading Research categorized it as a “comprehensive intervention” program, giving it high marks as an appropriate intervention for students pre-K through adult; the broadest range of any program reviewed.

This data also is used to provide weekly assignment recommendations in each program.
