Help Your Students Strengthen their Pronunciation, Reading Fluency, Vocabulary and Comprehension. You Can Combine Advanced Speech Recognition Technology with the Latest Reading Science. A Reading Tutor for Every Student:- Reading Assistant “listens” to a student as he or she reads aloud. Monitoring for signs of difficulty, the program intervenes with assistance when the student is challenged by a word.

Scientific Learning Reading Assistant acts as a patient, non-judgmental listener, that provides support to all students as they improve their English oral reading skills, essential for English language proficiency.

Reading Assistant software combines advanced speech verification technology with scientifically-based interventions to help students strengthen their reading fluency, vocabulary and comprehension.  Students listen to a model fluent reading of the passage, preview vocabulary, and read the passage orally. After reading, students review problematic words they did not understand and playback their reading.

Reading Assistant is for students who have attained basic word recognition and decoding skills and are now building vocabulary, fluency and comprehension. This includes students as young as preschoolers, all the way up to adults.


Students will:

  • Preview and read silently
  • Listen to a model reading of the text
  • Answer guided reading questions

Using research-validated speech verification technology, Reading Assistant “listens” to a student as he or she reads aloud. Monitoring for signs of difficulty, the program intervenes with assistance when the student is challenged by a word. Students re-read passages several times to build automaticity. Students are assessed to determine their level of comprehension by skill.

The software maintains careful performance records and the corresponding audio of each reading session for review by student and teacher. The program computes the students Words Correct Per Minute automatically.

Enjoyable Reading

Reading Assistant

“Kris and Susanne have completed the Reading Assistant program. They are really enjoying it and we’ve noted quite an improvement on their reading.”

Working Independently

Untitled

“I cannot speak highly enough about this program. My very reluctant 7th grade reader was reading at a 3rd grade level and had zero fluency or comprehension. After just 3 months he is reading at 99 words/min and has about 80% comprehension. He is now reading at about a 4-5th grade level. This program is great and he can work independently.”

 

Highly Recommended

Reading Assistant

“My daughter’s reading specialist highly recommends this program and was amazed I was able to get it for such a low price. I definitely recommend this product for kids learning to read or for kids working through learning difficulties with reading.”

Great Record Keeping

Selection-report“Sara was behind on reading. I can not tell you the amazing difference Reading Assistant has had on her! She went from not wanting to read her small “Sam sat on the mat” books to chapter books!! She LOVES the fact she can go back and listen to herself read!! I love the fact that they keep the scores of her reading comprehension and words per minute.”
