Lexia Reading updated

Lexia Learning has begun shipping the latest version of Lexia Reading, a software suite designed to help teach students, from pre-kindergarten to grade 12, who are struggling in class or suffering from learning disabilities. The release adds over 50 lessons, each designed to promote memory and retrieval of specific skills. Four mnemonic strategies are used for each lesson, including contextual stories, gestures, visualizations, and multi-sensory lessons.

The update also includes 23 new sets of skill builders, featuring printable practice sheets that include word hunts, matching games, writing practice and more. The sheets serve as a tool to help students apply their computer-learned skills to pencil-and-paper applications.

The tools focus on five key areas of reading, including phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary and comprehension. Teachers can take advantage of a management and reporting system that corresponds with each skill, delivering real-time assessment data on individual students. The software allows users to focus on the specific areas that each student needs to develop.

Lexia Reading is available to download for Mac or Windows platforms. Pricing varies based on the number of license seats, with specific cost information available from the company.
