Studies have shown that poor readers, who are reading at a grade level or more behind, are more
likely to be disruptive in the classroom, truant from school, and at risk of dropping out of high school.
The main objectives include:
1. Providing a measurable increase in reading speed, comprehension, and reading attention span.
The objective is that the students will double their reading speed and increase their reading skills
by one to two grade levels by the end of the school year.
2. Enabling poor readers to access the general curriculum through the use of assistive reading
technology to scan and read their textbooks and other classroom materials.
3. Providing learning disabled students with a multi-sensory reading alternative that will help them
increase their reading speed to the point they can read on their own.
4. Helping learning and reading disabled students stay in their regular classroom with their peers, so
they can continue learning in a least restrictive environment.
