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 It 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 It 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
Reading Psychology (2008, 2011)

These three studies show that Lexia Reading improves early literacy skills when used in conjunction with classroom reading instruction.  The studies were conducted in an urban Massachusetts school district.

Comprehension

Comprehension activities develop the ability to understand information at a concrete level as well as an abstract level through the application of higher order thinking skills. Activities develop comprehension strategies through interaction with increasingly complex narrative and informational texts.

Automaticity | Fluency

Automaticity is systematically developed through a series of warm-ups and activities focused on speed of processing. Fluency is addressed through activities that involve analysis of sentence structure and ultimately the timed silent reading of passages.
