Help for Struggling Readers

If your child is a struggling reader, then she is probably also a reluctant reader, and self-conscious and frustrated to boot. Reading Assistant could be just the help you need to turn your reluctant reader into a happy, willing reader.

Members tell us again and again that their children just LOVE Reading Assistant. One of the reasons they give is that Reading Assistant puts their children in charge of their own reading experience. Children progress at their own pace, repeat lessons as needed, and record their own reading so that they can play it back and learn from their mistakes. Children work independently for as long as desired and get invaluable reading practice.

How It Works: Equipped with headphones, your child reads the text on the computer screen into a microphone. Reading Assistant "listens" patiently, provides immediate feedback on errors, and assists with interactive resources. Reading Assistant is your child's very own reading tutor -- a tutor that never gets tired or impatient!

Reading Assistant also automaticaly scores your child's oral readings and maintains careful performance records so that you can quickly and easily assess his or her progress.

A Reading Assistant Subscription Provides:

  • More than 300 leveled reading selections aligned with state standards, including science, history, and social studies
  • A range of reading levels to allow for differentiated instruction
  • A variety of genres supporting elementary to high school curriculum, including both literature and informational text at all reading levels
WHAT YOU NEED: Reading Assistant is entirely web-based. All you need is a good Internet connection, an approved headset, and a computer that meets Reading Assistant's Technical Requirements.

HEADSET REQUIRED: Scientific Learning requires that you use any of the high-quality, noise-cancelling headsets on their list of authorized headsets.

As a homeschooling mother with a dyslexic daughter, I have tried everything I can get my hands on to help my daughter enjoy reading. She would get frustrated with my attempts to help her sound out words and I needed something different. Through Homeschool Buyers Co-op, I discovered Reading-Assistant! This approach to reading is a God send for dyslexic kids! They thrive on being in control, and RA gives them that and so much more. The reading prompts keep the child on track, so my daughter has never zoned out or daydreamed during a reading s...(more)

My 10 year old son ( adopted from Haiti at age 3) has been behind in reading since first grade. With reading assistant it is the first time where I can tell him to do his reading and do not have to watch every word he reads and correct it. He works with the computer program, enjoys it, and at the end I can check his score. I love it!!!!
Patty S., Co-op Member
My son has always struggled with reading and requires a great deal of one-on-one time from me in our homeschool. Reading Assistant has been an answer to prayer! He is able to do this program on his own, freeing me up to teach our other children. His fluency is greatly improving, which helps him in ALL of his subjects. So far, this program has been of great benefit to our family. I am considering subscribing for my younger children, (who do not have learning difficulties) as well, just for the fluency practice. Well worth the money spent!!
Rebeca J., Co-op Member
My kids absolutely love this amazing program! It has saved me as a homeschooling mum a lot of reading exercise stress! I just set it up for the kids and i have time to do other non school things. A treasure to have!
Mrs G, Co-op Member
I have been utilizing Reading Assistant for the past 6 weeks with my 5th grade son who is dyslexic. He LOVES this program! I am very happy and so is he. The sound quality is fabulous. The reading selections could not be more appropriate. And I believe that the program is designed in a brilliant way that is encouraging rather than frustrating. This program has been a breath of fresh air for us and I recommend it without hesitation. Bravo Homeschool Buyers Co-op. You've introduced me to another amazing product that I would not have had th...(more)
Shari S., Co-op Member
I absolutely love it! It helps with reading and greatly improves their vocabulary and comprehension skills.The option to hear some of the vocabulary words in spanish is a plus. Overall it's really a wonderful program and worth the price to help a struggling reader or improve ones reading skills.
L. Chiosi, Co-op Member
We have had a great experience with Reading Assistant so far! My 11 year-old daughter had a severe speech delay when she was younger and had issues with receptive and expressive language. This affected not only her speech, but also her reading and comprehension. She is doing so well now, through years of speech therapy and extra help in reading. However, I was looking for a product that would reinforce correct language and speech patterns for my daughter, and give her guided practice in fluency. Reading Assistant has been a great resource ...(more)
Marci L., Co-op Member
Sara was behind on reading. I can not tell you the amazing difference Reading Assistant has had on her! She went from not wanting to read her small "Sam sat on the mat" books to chapter books!! She LOVES the fact she can go back and listen to herself read!! I love the fact that they keep the scores of her reading comprehension and words per min. She can see the numbers and goals which helps her motivation!! This is the best homeschool product I have EVER bought!! Now my oldest child who doesn't have a reading issue wants an account so she isn't...(more)
Melodie G., Co-op Member
Our 5th grade boy is an out-of-the-box, creative thinker. He is also dyslexic and has ADHD. We have tried multiple reading programs and none have improved his fluency or made him feel as if he's accomplished something. Reading Assistant has changed that for us - finally!! He looks forward to doing his reading every day. It's challenging but not impossible. His fluency is slowly improving. Today he met his fluency goal for the first time and you would have thought it was Christmas!
MeganB, Co-op Member
My 9 year old daughter is a struggling reader. We have used this product for almost a year now. She has gone from never wanting to read to now enjoying reading. She still has some struggles but not nearly as much. Her fluency has improved dramatically as well as her site word recognition. I would highly recommend this product for any age child who is a struggling reader.
