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.
Reading Plus is a web-based literacy improvement technology that helps students rapidly build critical independent reading capacities while finding their own motivation to read, learn, and grow. Whether a student is in elementary school or college, in need of intervention or reinforcement, Reading Plus assesses the whole student and personalizes instruction and practice to help build lifelong readers and critical consumers of text. The adaptive technology meets students where they are and helps them grow in the areas where they need the most support.
In the Reading component, students engage in silent reading practice through an extensive library of engaging informational and literary text selections and then answer questions about each text to assess their comprehension. The program’s library of over 1,000 text selections are contained within 13 reading levels that range from first grade readability through college level. As students move up along a staircase of increasingly complex text, they encounter more complex vocabulary in increasingly challenging selections in terms of topic, theme, or structure. Students also widen and deepen their knowledge as they sharpen their reading skills.
The Vocabulary component builds students’ mastery of words that are essential to general academic knowledge. As students learn words, they develop contextual analysis skills to help them unlock the meaning of other unfamiliar words they may encounter in texts.
In the Visual Skills component, struggling readers work to develop the physical skills they need to be more fluent readers.
Rooted in eight decades of research, Reading Plus is proven to increase achievement in students from elementary grades through college.
