These effective supplemental programs align with LETRS’ science of reading and the Structured Literacy approach to help preK–12 students hone the fundamentals of reading instruction where they need the most guidance and extra practice.

Reading is a complex, learned skill. The Scarborough’s Rope model (2001), a ground-breaking literacy visual that represents the complexities of learning to read, shows all the essential language comprehension (background knowledge, vocabulary, language structures, verbal reasoning, literacy knowledge) and word recognition (phonological awareness, decoding, sight recognition) components. These component strands are all ‘woven’ together into the brain’s development of skilled reading. Our LETRS-aligned solutions adhere to this science of reading approach and they target many of the key skill areas represented in the upper and lower strands. By providing the strategies, tools, and support educators need to teach literacy, students of all ages can become skilled readers with our solutions.
