Reading Intervention

Reading Intervention Curriculum (Grades 1-12) 

In Just 15-20 Minutes a Day, Bring the Science of Reading to Your Classroom

In all our lessons, students learn to practice what good readers do naturally, which is to pay attention to every word, read with a high rate of accuracy, and use strategies for attacking unfamiliar and multi-syllable words. Our lessons, LaunchpadCountdownBlastHD Word, and Boost explicitly teach phonemic awareness, phonics concepts, and word attack skills. They also focus on reading accurately, which translates to better comprehension. The lessons are research-based, multisensory, highly effective, and can be taught by a wide range of people, not just experienced literacy professionals. In addition to the four programs below, explore our extension lessons.
