We’re experiencing problems with Lexia freezing and kicking students out of the program. What can we do to resolve this?

The most common reason that may cause Lexia to freeze is related to any security filters that may be in place on your school servers. You can use our Whitelisting Document to support you ICT technicians in ensuring that all of the relevant areas are unblocked. If the problem persists, you can get in touch with our Technical Support Team by email on or by telephone on 0800 883 0770.

Lexia is what we have been waiting for and now we are “living the reading dream,” as one of my Year 6 students said about the program!
