How does it work?

Our 1-2-3 punch approach is to PREPARE-PRACTICE-PERFORM:

1. PREPARE the brain.

Many interventions work around a reading problem, accommodating areas of weakness, like putting a band-aid on underlying issues. Our program targets the core areas of weakness, starting in the brain. Once these are improved, progress is fast, and continues long after students complete the intervention.

2. PRACTICE foundational skills, intensively.

Intensity is the key to catching up students fast. This is how to get far better results in a shorter period of time. Our program provides intense and personalized adaptive practice in grammar, vocabulary, reading and listening comprehension which develops automaticity.

Our program is like a boot camp for the brain, providing more intense and personalized cross-training on a wide variety of literacy and cognitive skills - more practice than small group, 1:1 work, or other computerized interventions.

3. PERFORM aloud, with support.

We offer the only software that uses speech verification technology to "listen" to your students as they read and speak aloud, offering them support with decoding and pronunciation right when they need it - rapidly building fluency and comprehension. It’s like a guided reading coach for every student - anytime, anywhere - but with absolutely no judgment. It's perfect for any reader who needs more practice at their instructional level, especially the reluctant or extra shy ones!

  • Better than an e-reader, it’s the only tool that offers personalized decoding/comprehension support at just the right time
  • Measures WCPM and comprehension level (inferential, literal, etc.) - provides invaluable formative assessment data
  • Can be used at your school site and at home – over the summer and throughout the year
