Lexia Strategies is designed for struggling readers in grades 6 and above who are having difficulty with their fundamental literacy skills. Using a simple, age-appropriate interface, the program begins with skills at the first-grade level, covering basic phonological awareness through advanced decoding skills, vocabulary development, and comprehension activities. Students work independently to develop reading skills in a structured, sequential manner while teachers receive the data and resources they need to support intervention and direct instruction.

Personalized Learning

Personalized Learning

Lexia's 6–12 literacy solution is built around the specific needs of each struggling reader. The solution utilizes adaptive, personalized learning to help students develop fundamental literacy skills through a range of content covering basic phonological awareness through advanced decoding skills, vocabulary development, and comprehension activities. Based on student responses, the instructional intensity is differentiated to accelerate reading skills development and that real-time data is sent to the teacher, fueling customized skills-based lesson plans based on each student's needs. Using the program's embedded assessment, teachers can focus on personalized instruction without having to stop to administer a test.

Lexia Strategies Implementation Scenarios

  • Tiers II and III Instruction

    Strategies is designed for struggling students in grades 6 and above receiving Tier II and Tier III instruction. These students require systematic, structured instruction and a range of content that covers basic phonological awareness through advanced decoding skills, vocabulary development, and comprehension activities.

    Specifically designed for older students, Strategies provides a focused, motivating learning environment  as well as the flexibility for integration into upper-grades schedules that don't always include time for fundamental reading skill development.

    Because teachers at the secondary level may not have the background training or the materials to address these most basic reading skills, the practice materials provided by Strategies are directly aligned to instruction.

  • Blended Learning

    Strategies seamlessly fits into new or existing blended learning implementations. As students work in the online program, they follow their own unique learning paths. This provides the flexibilty for students to focus on developing their reading skills in a safe environment where they don't feel self-conscious about their progress.  

    Especially in a classroom with struggling readers, it is imperative that student data accurately pinpoints specific areas of weakness for each student. Strategies provides teachers with this daily progress monitoring and diagnostic data as well as the resources to connect student performance data to teacher-led classroom instruction. This sets the foundation for connecting each component of a strong blended learning implementation to quickly accelerate literacy growth.

  • Lexia Outside of the Classroom

    Lexia supports flexible implementation strategies that extend learning beyond the classroom and school day. Lexia licenses allow free access for students at home as well as in extended day settings such as before- and after-school programs, or in community centers and public libraries.

    In many schools, student access to the computer is limited, and the challenge of prioritizing and allocating computer time to each student can create some difficult decisions.  With Lexia, students can log on to their online reading program at any time and continue on their individualized learning paths via web browser, iPad, or desktop download. Because customers can install the program on as many devices as necessary, schools can leverage available hardware resources at home or in community centers to ensure that every student receives the required minutes-per-week on Lexia.
