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.

No more fighting to read. My son likes trying to get a higher score, every time he reads. He likes reading by himself, using the computer. He is reading a lot better, than I thought. Yes, we will keep using it. It is a great program with no stress. Yes, I have told other moms.

We have tried Hooked on Phonics.
Kathryn C., Co-op Member
EXCELLENT, EXCELLENT, EXCELLENT!!! I cannot speak highly enough about this program. My very reluctant 7th grade reader made a deal with me to start on the 1st grade level and work forward. He was reading at a 3rd grade level and had 0 fluency or comprehension. After just 3 months he is reading at 99words/min and has about 80% comprehension. He is now reading at about a 4-5th grade level and we are moving along. He is still struggling with vocabulary but we are working on that as well. This program is great and he can work independently. Thanks ...(more)
Laurie Halvorson, Co-op Member
My 8 year old (struggling reader) wiggly-boy loves Reading Assistant. His 10 year old brother (advanced reader) thought it looked cool so he begged me for his own subscription. I was hesitant to buy the program but now I'm thrilled with how it's helping both of my sons.
Lisa, Co-op Member
We used Reading Assistant in conjunction with Barton Reading and Spelling. My daughter's fluency drastically improved with Reading Assistant. It can be time consuming working with a child with learning disabilities that is nice to have a program that requires very little parent involvement.
Rebecca L., Co-op Member
We used Reading Assistant for 9 months with my son. It made a great difference in his reading ability. While I don't think this was the only tool that allowed him to read more fluently, it was one of the key tools we used. Today he can read quite well and actually ENJOYS reading!
Marcie, Co-op Member
Thank you so much for having this product available. I know it's work for you, but it is a great product and I'm excited to be able to have it for my son. If it wasn't for Fast ForWord, my son probably would not be reading even close to his grade level at this time. Our next goal is to increase his fluency with Reading Assistant so reading will be enjoyable for him.
Cynthia G., Co-op Member
It has really helped with my son's fluency/his ability to read fast. The stories are interesting and appropriate for his grade level. He doesn't hate the stories like his textbook. Sometimes the voice recognition doesn't work as well as we'd like, so it is helpful to have an adult sit with him. He likes the reward points at the end too. We'll continue until he has worked his way through all of the stories. It's better than hooked on phonics master reader.
LJE, 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.
Mrs. Kristie Richardson, Co-op Member
The program has been great for my 6th grader once I fine tuned the voice recognition. It has improved his fluency and helped a struggling reader feel successful.

I also purchased this for my first grader who is an average first grade reader. The beginning of the program is harder then I expected and did not work for her. I would say it is better for second grade and up.
Vikki, Co-op Member
My 13 year old son loves RA. He is an English Language Learner, and also is dyslexic, so he struggles a lot. I have noticed that the RA lets him get away with more mistakes than I do, which is disappointing. I like that it lets him do some independent work, though. Also, he very much enjoys the stories he's reading. He's enjoying learning the information that they teach.
