Reading Comprehension Software

Online Reading Comprehension Program

Online Programs For All Ages

Our reading comprehension software first makes reading automatic and then trains the language, high-level thinking and comprehension skills required for college-level reading comprehension.

Here is what is required to meet the comprehension and critical thinking goals of the Common Core State Standards:

  1. Understand the main idea
  2. Monitor understanding of the sequence, context, or characters
  3. Clarify parts of the text which have confused them
  4. Connect the text to prior knowledge or experience

Reading Efficiency

Our reading comprehension software, Fast ForWord, starts by strengthening the cognitive skills needed for reading fluency & efficiency, before training reading comprehension specific skills in the second part of our program.

Familiarity with Language
While most children learn the language by listening, struggling readers tend to have processing delays that impede language familiarity and dexterity.

Although our cognitive training develops listening skills, it cannot make up for years of imperfect listening. And so, our reading comprehension programs address language skills, specifically vocabulary and language structure, including syntax, spelling and grammar.

Thinking While Reading
Accomplished readers constantly compare the text to their understanding of the world. For most struggling readers, this is difficult. Our program develops thinking while reading using reading comprehension exercises where students learn to decode subconsciously while the mind focuses on an analytical task.

Online communities for writers to improve skills

I've started reading through this community recently and it's inspired me to start journaling daily again, in the hopes that I will start to regain some writing skills that I feel have diminished since I left school.
Does anyone here have any recommendations for online communities that have good tips or ideas on ways to improve your writing skill? I'm not looking for a place to post work and get it critiqued just yet, but am looking for something more like writing prompts, "assignments" (like from school), vocabulary lessons, and that sort of thing... For instance, in a writing club in high school, I was given a list of poetry forms to dabble in

Online research and practice.

Improving my riding skills has been a primary focus of my motorcycling habit for the last 7 years. If you don't have funds for more advanced riding MSF classes, track days, or buying books on riding, you can research online and then take what you've been reading about and practice it.
Research, read, print out, read, practice, read, make a practice list that you're going to focus on, and try to meet some more skilled riders than yourself to practice with.
If you do find a group to ride with for the point of improving skills, try to talk to them about riding "The Pace" to improve everyone

    It's new because the Copyright date is 2011. I never saw it before yesterday. It's good so far. I'm on page 139 out of 305. I started it at 5:30ish yesterday. I'm kinda sad though. I should be farther than this. Probably 250ish but I was drawing.....

    • Legend has been on my TBR List for months now, even before it came out. I do research on books and yeah, that's how I found Legend. I finally ordered it online last night. So it'll come in a couple of days, so stoked though! Oh and if you haven't read Divergent by Veronica Roth, read it. Its one of my favorite books, its so amazing! Maybe its just because I love dystopians. Oh well. (:
