Merit Question and Answer
Desperate for more reading help


Area of Concern: Reading Comprehension

Submitted by: Parent

Grade Level: Middle School

Competency: Below Level

Hi, I just got my 8th grade grandson from foster care. I was stunned to learn he reads at a 3rd grade level. He worked with a tutor for a little while, and it helped, but he needs further help.

He tried some of your demos and liked them. He told me he didn’t want me to watch him over his shoulder while he did them.

Which of your products do you suggest? Can I track his scores without him knowing?
