Intervention

Both Lexia Reading Core5 and Lexia Strategies are uniquely suited to support Response to Intervention (RTI) and Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) models. Data-driven action plans in Core5 and Strategies help teachers maximize their time by focusing attention where it is needed most by:

  • Identifying and grouping students for instruction based on risk of reading failure
     

  • Tracking the effectiveness of intervention with real-time diagnostic reports and trend lines
     

  • Prescribing instructional intensity needed to improve performance on grade-level assessments

Who Lexia Helps

Students Receiving Tier II and III Instruction

With the accessibility of Lexia’s student data reports, the progress of students receiving Tier II and III instruction can be easily monitored by teachers, specialists, and paraprofessionals so each student receives the appropriate  targeted instruction.

Core5

Lexia Reading Core5 provides a focused interface that supports executive functioning skills and promotes careful pacing to ensure mastery before progressing. For students requiring Tier II and III instruction, Core5 provides various levels of scaffolded support to allow more opportunities for independent learning.  If a student continuously struggles in the online program, an intervention specialist can pull the student out of the rotation and deliver Lexia’s adaptation version of the Lexia Lesson that addresses the skill with a different approach, rather than continuously repeating the same lesson.

 

Strategies

Lexia Strategies was designed specifically for students needing Tier II and Tier III instruction in grades 6 and above. Using Strategies, students work independently via a more mature, age-appropriate interface—with content appropriate for their interest levels to keep unmotivated readers engaged—to develop their fundamental reading skills in a structured, sequential manner with a focus on phonological awareness through advanced decoding skills, vocabulary development, and comprehension activities.

How Lexia Helps

Lexia’s real-time reports identify the skills with which each student is struggling and provide the instructional groupings to support students with similar needs. Lexia offers structured, skill-specific instructional materials, called Lexia Lessons®, which provide step-by-step lessons following the Gradual Release of Responsibility model for a teacher or paraprofessional to address each student’s skill gap. These lessons can be delivered in the classroom rotation or in pull-out groups with intervention specialists.

Research and Best Practices
Comfortable and Confident

I have a student that has social, emotional and attention struggles. Therefore, it is a challenge to get him to work on an activity for more than a few minutes. He also lacks self-esteem and confidence in many school subjects, especially reading, so he does not put forth much effort.
