A PERSONALISED READING SOLUTION
Millions of British children and adults are without one of life’s essential building blocks – literacy. Reading is vital to personal development, whether for enjoying a book, magazine, newspaper or for crucial everyday needs including understanding instructions, credit agreements and timetables.
Today 1.7m adults lack the reading skills of seven-year-olds, 5.2m have not achieved Key Stage 3 standard and 17.8m cannot read well enough to study for GCSEs. Due to the scale of this problem, hard-pushed teachers are unable to fully meet the needs of those who require consistent and personalised support.
Lexia is an innovative reading software program which is transforming reading education. It applies carefully researched, proven techniques to enable students to learn in a way which automatically adapts to their individual needs.
We believe that having the ability to read and comprehend is a basic human right. By applying 21st Century solutions to an age-old problem, we can break the non-reading cycle of difficulties which has hampered our society for so long.
