Post-pandemic, more students are coming into the classroom with varied academic skill levels. Many schools, districts, and even states are investing in science of reading-based professional learning to give educators the support they need to accelerate learning and raise their literacy framework to the next level. Lexia® solutions can support the professional learning needs of educators from early childhood to adolescence.
Only 51% of teaching institutions provide adequate instruction in the science of reading (NCTQ, 2020), creating a huge opportunity to transform student learning.
How do we take districtwide literacy professional learning to the next level?
Science of Reading-Based Professional Learning
Lexia’s professional learning solutions are built on the science of reading, informed by five decades of “gold-standard” research that tells us how we learn to read and the most effective way for reading to be taught. It gives educators and administrators the knowledge and tools to better assess students’ needs, differentiate instruction, and accelerate learning for all students. With Lexia, educators learn the "why" and "how" behind effective reading instruction to inform "what" to teach.

Lexia solutions develop science of reading knowledge to empower teachers and help all students succeed
Learning to Read (Grades K–3)
Learning to speak is a natural process for children, but learning to read is not. The LETRS Suite is comprehensive professional learning designed to provide early childhood and elementary educators and administrators with deep knowledge to be literacy and language experts in the science of reading.
Educators gain the skills needed to master the fundamentals of reading instruction—phonological awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, comprehension, writing, and language. Understanding how children learn to read, the causes of reading difficulties, and how to effectively teach for the best results can be truly transformational for educators and their students.
Reading To Learn (Grades 4–8)
As students move into upper elementary and middle school, the focus transitions from learning to read to reading to learn. Educators seek professional learning specifically designed to meet the wide range of needs of adolescent students. Post-pandemic, informed educators who are equipped to teach advanced literacy skills are needed more than ever.
Aspire Professional Learning is a flexible, self-paced, digital solution that uses the science of reading to help educators weave literacy skills and strategies into their instruction so they can support learners to read, comprehend, and articulate their ideas across various subjects. It gives time-constrained classroom educators, content area educators, ELA educators, interventionists, dyslexia specialists, and speech pathologists just-in-time, application-based content and activities to meet specific student needs.
With Aspire, educators get personalized feedback and can start and stop the program and pick up where they left off—anywhere and anytime.
