Male student, 42 years old, tested at reading 4th grade diagnosed with dyslexia, has never had any help, writing is also very bad



Merit has helped many older students build their reading skills. In particular, Reading Shape-Up has been very effective with dyslexics.

Reading Shape-Up helps students master specific reading skills: main idea, vocabulary, sequence, fact-opinion, factual recall, and inference.

A tutorial introduces each concept. Students receive help and contextual feedback while they work through the program.

The program is written for students reading at a 3rd through 8th grade level.
