Diascriptive Reading Alternative


Area of Concern: Reading Comprehension

Submitted by: Teacher

Grade Level: Special Education

Competency: Below Level

For many years we had used a reading program called Diascriptive Reading. It no longer being updated by the company that made it. Do you have something similar we can use in its place?



We have helped many students improve their reading comprehension skills. Similarly to Diascriptive Reading, Merit reading programs are both diagnostic and prescriptive.

Our most popular programs for these purposes are Reading Skill Builder and Developing Critical Thinking Skills For Effective Reading.

Developing Critical Thinking Skills is designed for students wit reading levels 5.0 through 11.0. The software helps students improve reading comprehension.

Reading Skill Builder is designed students with reading levels 3.0 through 8.0. The software helps students master specific reading skills: main idea, vocabulary, sequence, fact-opinion, factual recall, and inference.
