This study, published in 2009 in the European Journal of Special Needs Education, shows the effectiveness of Lexia programs beyond the elementary level.  The study tracked the performance of struggling readers in middle school from a Utah school district, where Lexia Strategies supplemented intense phonics-based reading instruction.

  • Students in the Lexia group made significant gains relative to a control group on the Word Attack subtest, from the Woodcock-Johnson® III Tests of Achievement. [Macaruso and Rodman (2009).
