Merit Question and Answer
Earobics vs. Merit Software for Reading Comprehension


Area of Concern: Reading Fundamentals

Submitted by: Teacher

Grade Level: Elementary School

Competency: Below Level

I’m desperately looking for a good substance-filled reading software program for one of my students to use over the summer. Her mother cannot afford an expensive program and asked me to look into Earobics. Although I do think the skills practiced on this program will help her greatly I also think the program will not hold her interest for very long. The student is a 4th grade girl who reads well/almost at level, but who struggles with comprehension. She also also being tested in the next few weeks for a central processing disorder…she is actually the only student in my resource room who does not have a learning disability, but who desperately needs the extra support of the small classroom. Do you have a program that would be a better choice than Earobics?



Thanks for your inquiry. We’ve helped many students improve their reading comprehension. Our most popular program for this purpose is Reading Comprehension Booster. The program helps students improve their reading comprehension, as well as increase and utilize their reading skills. It is designed for students who read at 3rd through 5th grade levels.
