Area of Concern: Help with all Subjects

Submitted by: Teacher

Grade Level: Special Education

Competency: At Level

I teach students with disabilities ranging from very mild
learning disabilities to moderate mental retardation(MR).
The students with MR have good sight word skills but cannot
comprehend what they read. The students with learning
disabilities can usually comprehend better but have difficulties
with main idea, details and have little word attack abilities



Thank you for contacting us. We have helped many students with learning disabilities and our software has been effective in improving reading comprehension levels 3-12.

The lowest level you can start with is Reading compression Booster. Once your students have mastered it or if its too easy they can move on to Developing Critical Thinking Skills for Effective Reading.

Good Luck!
