LEXIA QUICK READING TEST
The Lexia Quick Reading Test is a reading evaluation program designed for use with children with dyslexia and other learning disabilities. This program pinpoints strengths and weaknesses in word decoding skills and facilitates early detection of decoding gaps and weaknesses. The program offers Real Word Testing and Pseudo Word Testing. Real Word Testing is appropriate for young students and those with limited sight vocabularies. Pseudo Word Testing is appropriate for older students and those with well-established sight vocabularies. Both formats offer two tests per level and support re-testing over time. Both formats utilize automatic branching to explore weaknesses in detail. Assess level A tests letter names, short and long vowel silent "e" words, consonant blends and digraphs, vowel combination words, vowel -r combination words, multisyllable words, and sight words for grades one and two. Assess level B tests suffixes, vowel combination words, open and closed first syllable words, words with "le" paired with a consonant (i.e., candle, stable), the two sounds of "c" and "g," three syllable words, and sight words for grades three and four. Assess level C tests Anglo Saxon prefixes and suffixes; Latin prefixes and suffixes; accent patterns; pronunciation of "ti," "si," and "ci"; connectives "u" and "i"; ligatured "du," "tu," and "su"; and Greek combined forms. The program also offers three report types: Individual (graphic and tabular), class (tabular), and comparison (tabular). COMPATIBILITY: Versions are available for use on Macintosh and IBM and compatible computers.
PHONICS BASED READING & READING S.O.S. (STRATEGIES FOR OLDER STUDENTS) FAMILY EDITIONS
Phonics Based Reading and Reading S.O.S. Family Editions are reading tutorial software programs designed for home use to teach reading skills to children, youth, and adults with dyslexia and other learning disabilities. Phonics Based Reading teaches skills generally covered in grades one through three, introducing more than 2,000 words using engaging, age-appropriate graphics. Reading S.O.S. is intended for students from ages nine years through adult and covers skills generally taught in grades one through four. More than 3,000 words are introduced using a mature interface respecting the needs and interests of older students. Sold individually, both programs enable students to work independently at their own pace as voice prompts lead them through each activity. The programs tailor activities to the student's skill level, and students may move to a new activity or have instructions repeated at any time. Both programs also include parent override features and bar graph progress reporting features. COMPATIBILITY: Versions are available for use on Macintosh and IBM and compatible computers.
