I am passing on information to support and encourage families to assist their children, by using Reading Assistant.  Reading Assistant offers personalized differentiated guided reading everyday.  It consists of a private, patient and supportive 1:1 reading tutor.  The effective technology develops vocabulary, fluency and comprehension.  In addition, the reporting system provides me with insight into your child’s progress and deficiencies.  After a story has been recorded, I can listen to your child read.  Because of the detailed reporting system,  I have an opportunity to provide further support .  I have the ability to pass on reports and recordings to parents and teachers. The program is extremely affordable compared to other outside tutoring.  If used as the protocol suggests, other methods of instruction cannot compare to its’ effectiveness.
