Computer-based learning programs provide customized learning environments for each child
At the Speech Language and Learning Center, we provide a number of different learning programs based on our assessment of your child and their specific needs.
LearningAlly- Provides audiobooks that can help children become better readers and more effective learners. LearningAlly’s innovative programs, technology and solutions dramatically improves outcomes for our students with print-related disabilities like blindness, visual impairment dyslexia and other learning differences.
Dragon Naturally Speaking
Dragon Naturally Speaking - This speech to text software allows for students to be able to speak their answers and the information they know. This fast and accurate speech recognition software lends to better written expression as the student does not have to focus on spelling and grammar and can focus on content.
Lexia - According to the National Reading Panel, Lexia is designed according to the latest scientific findings in education and is one of the best approaches to reading instruction. Lexia is centered on a personalized approach to learning that gives students more control over the time, place, and pace of their learning. This “personalized learning” is used in tandem with grade appropriate curricular instruction as well as differentiated instruction to allow students to develop critical reading skills.
Membean- Knowing the meanings of words, and being able to use them, is an essential skill for both reading comprehension and effective writing. Researchers have long known that teaching individual words is essential, but it's even more important to build a student's word consciousness. Membean helps:
Readers with fluency problems read slowly and inaccurately which may interfere with reading comprehension. Reading can become an unpleasant task. Fluent readers read without thinking about the process, allowing them to focus on the meaning, making reading a pleasurable activity. Read Naturally provides struggling readers with an individually-paced program to develop reading fluency utilizing three research-based strategies:
- Teacher Modeling
- Repeated Reading
- Progress Monitoring
By combing these strategies into one powerful program, Read Naturally keeps students on task as they build reading fluency and accelerate their reading achievement.
