Students find the resource tremendously helpful and really enjoy the attractive interface and engaging images that are never boring, always challenging and satisfying to work with.
The customer support is excellent, as is the training the company supplies.
Lexia has proved to be a fun tool, which supports children of all ages, abilities and backgrounds.
I was first introduced to Lexia as a parent, because my son's school purchased it...
It is very reassuring to see the progress the children are making and the reports are very clear at showing where the gaps are and what needs to be targeted.
From a teacher's point of view, everything that's needed regarding support and intervention for any pupil who may be struggling is just a click away.
The pupils have responded brilliantly to receiving certificates each time they complete a level, showing great levels of motivation to achieve the next.
'During the trial period it quickly became apparent that pupils of all abilities were gaining an enormous amount from the structured and engaging approach to reading instruction.'
We have just started using Lexia PowerUp and have been very impressed with the efficient service provided by Lexia. The training is well-structured and clear, and any queries are dealt with quickly. The support has been great.
To say that the children are engaged is an understatement; I have never witnessed a class of children of all abilities become so immersed in a reading program. The children love to be rewarded for their efforts and cannot wait to receive their next certificate, this also spurs on their peers too! We would not be without Lexia now.
Our students love it, there has been a truly positive response to it, so overwhelming in fact we have had to encourage some children to slow down - that is unheard of!!!!
The students have found it easy to access both in school and at home and this has helped us to deliver and develop the key literacy skills that the students need.
I am so passionate about Lexia, PowerUp is really user friendly, it doesn’t patronise the children at all. The students respond with great enthusiasm and are motivated to complete units and levels, as they want to achieve. I am extremely proud of my students and their successes!
It’s easy to see why our pupils have made so much progress: students love the program. It has been incredible to see students who have sometimes found it difficult to engage in literacy activities grow in confidence and thrive in and out of the classroom.
Lexia has given us a whole school platform which ensures consistency in approach, whilst giving learning matched to each individual pupil...
We are delighted to have Lexia as part of our support strategy in our school.
Within ten minutes of the demonstration starting, I was hooked. Amongst other positives, I knew Lexia would be great for engaging our reluctant readers.
With blended learning currently in place at the moment, we have to monitor pupil engagement on a daily basis, the one area that is thriving is Lexia, parents are reporting that the children can't wait to complete their Lexia work...
With Lexia, we are able to have an overview of not only every child's engagement in the program but also their progress; identifying key gaps in knowledge and using the resources provided by Lexia to scaffold interventions.
I like Lexia because it sharpens your mind. The comprehension units have really helped me improve on my comprehension tests. Overall, it is very helpful and fun. I really love the animations at the end. I would definitely recommend this to someone else!
We have used Lexia as part of our ‘recovery curriculum’ and having implemented it for a term, the reports produced to demonstrate the excellent academic progress the children have made in a very short space of time.
Lexia is a game changer! Now we are back in lockdown and most children are learning at home, it's reassuring to know that the children are accessing bespoke learning.
Lexia is fabulous! We have been using it for such a short time - in the most difficult of circumstances - and it has already been of benefit to us.
We love it and we're now preparing to see how we can use it to good effect in lockdown.
I have been teaching for 15 years and I have never been so engaged with a program before because you can really see the impact it is having on our children. Lexia is just the gift that keeps on giving.
It has been wonderful to see that the children are so enthusiastic about reading and are making progress whilst enjoying a wide variety of texts.
We have been very impressed with the customer service from Lexia. We have always been able to speak to the same representative by telephone or email whenever we have needed support.
The Kyra Research School Pilot, involved 8 schools trialling our primary program, Core5, with one also using PowerUp to target secondary age pupils. The data included in the following report has been anonymised and breaks down the measured progress and usage for a varying number of students across participating schools over a six month period.

In a class of 32 children it's like having 32 teachers who are fully engaged and personalising the learning for all the children.
Our pupils have enthusiastically participated in Lexia's engaging personalised reading scheme, both at school and at home and have made good progress.
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!
We have been delighted with the progress made by our pupils and can see the benefit in continuing with whole year groups as well as using it for targeted interventions.
[Lexia] differentiates all my children and provides detailed lesson plans for children who are struggling. I would thoroughly recommend this to schools.
Disaffected students engaged well with the program and their progress is evident.
The majority of pupils using PowerUp are making more than expected progress in their reading ages and are becoming more confident readers.
The reports are an instant visual for progress from where the children started to where they are now and seeing the visual graphs to show how the children have progressed is really useful.
I firmly believe that the program helped and supported Year 6 to get the great results which they achieved in all areas of the English related SATs.
