I'm sharing this here, because I'd love to share progress and connect with others who try out this program.
I only have five children set up. They have given me 12 accounts to use. I'm working with all the children at no charge. Two are my own. The other 3 are children who I know their parents well and know they are struggling with reading. All 5 children are entering 4th grade in the Fall.
So far I like the program a lot. I have an account respresentative to answer questions and provide support. I have already spoken to her on the phone and she is sending me a manual by mail. This online program is about $199 per year. There are no strings attached. I've been asked to make sure to use the assessments on children at the beginning of the program and at the end. I will be asked to participate in a short phone interview at the end of the summer.
If you sign up, please add to this discussion.
I forgot to add something. The program says it's for 10 year olds and up. I think it would work for any child who has completed first grade and is struggling a little with reading.
I hope I get some people to join me in this adventure. My account representative said it didn't matter how many kids I signed up. I think it would be okay for someone to sign up only one child.
