                                      The Right Kind of Assistance for Every Teacher!


 Keys to Reading Success™ is ideal for Special Education teachers, ESL/ELL, Middle School and High Schools teachers whose students are not meeting reading standards – or are non-readers. These teachers are not typically trained in remedial reading, and schools often do not have the resources to provide enough reading specialists for all the students with reading difficulties. Keys to Reading Success™ ensures that every student – even the student unable to read -- receives expert diagnosis, instruction, and ongoing formative assessment and progress reports showing gains and improvements.

 Keys to Reading Success™ automatically and instantly creates Individualized Reading Plans (IRPs) for every student. These IRPs provide teachers with specific guidance on the strengths and weaknesses of students and suggests specific lessons. These IRPs can be easily incorporated into IEPs for Special Education students, saving precious teacher time.

 Keys to Reading Success™ provides resources for teachers to involve students in their own learning and increase student understanding and motivation.

Keys to Reading Success™ provides specific, classroom tested lessons, resources and materials teachers can immediately use to help improve student test-taking skills, especially on high stakes state and national assessments.

Research tells us that the best way to teach reading is to start instruction where the student is at – and provide fast, accurate and ongoing feedback.

But we know that from a practical point of view teachers may not have the time or special training to accurately assess their students’ reading level and reading skills.

This is where Keys to Reading Success™ comes in.

Keys to Reading Success™ makes it easy for you to do it right and to accelerate student reading achievement. Build on student success, and increase student motivation to read and learn.

Some reading programs actually remove the teacher from the teaching-learning process. Those programs expect the teacher to put their students in front of a computer and let the computer try to teach reading. Some reading programs use self-paced instructional methods that expect the student to learning on their own. But research and the experience of successful teachers confirms that effective reading instruction keeps the teacher at the heart of the teaching-learning process. Keys to Reading Success™ believes that the best reading instruction is teacher-led and student-centered. Keys to Reading Success™ provides the tools and resources to free up teachers to do what they do best – focus on student learning.
