Lexia Product Features

Personalised learning

Lexia products are centred on a personalised approach to learning that gives students more control over the time, place, path, and pace of their learning.  To some, the term “personalised learning” is simply the incorporation of technology to give students more control over their educational experience. Technology can be a key component of a personalised learning approach, but it cannot stand alone.

Lexia believes personalised learning is a combination of effective, teacher-led instruction combined with an interactive, user-centric experience that supports the varying cognitive abilities of all students. With Lexia, teachers can see detailed, real-time reports that help prioritise and differentiate instruction, allowing students to develop critical reading skills at their own pace.

Structured and systematic

What differentiates Lexia products from ed-tech games or test prep programs is the incorporation of a structured and systematic approach to literacy instruction that builds upon prior learning in a sequential manner—from simple to complex, ultimately reducing dependency on the teacher and transitioning responsibility to the student.


Due to its technology-based approach, Lexia provides a scalable solution, allowing educators to support all pupils – regardless of ability.

Assessment Without Testing

As students work independently in the online activities of Lexia’s instructional programs, real-time performance data is collected through Lexia’s patented embedded assessment tool, Assessment Without Testing®. Here, educators can access data reports online through their myLexia browser-based accounts.

Evidencing progress

In this day and age of accountability, Lexia provides instant progress reports at school, class or individual level.  Lexia has been used successfully by many schools in targeting ‘hard to reach’ groups including Pupil Premium cohorts.  Lexia reports are easy to access and interpret.  Most information can be exported or printed automatically.

Home Use

Lexia is browser-based, allowing pupils to access the program seamlessly between school and home.  Home use reduces the need to deliver Lexia during the school day. Also, it is excellent for setting structured, personalised literacy homework, such as over holiday periods.

Delivery and Support

LexiaUK prides itself on the level of customer support it provides.  Dedicated teams will assist your school in initial set-up, training and implementation.  Ongoing, we provide further training sessions, along with telephone and technical support for the duration of your contract.  Lexia products are available on iPad® and many other devices.  The teacher management dashboard can be accessed through the myLexia® app.
