Strengthen Skills, Build Confidence, Enjoy Reading

These programs teach key reading skills for every grade, from phonics and sight words for younger children to comprehension, textbook strategies, writing skills for older kids, and everything in between.

Guided by a knowledgeable and supportive teacher, students in these programs experience reading success again and again, developing their skills and building confidence in outstanding books at the right level of challenge for each age. Your child will avoid the many challenges of summer learning loss and become an avid reader who enjoys reading for school and for pleasure.

How the Programs Work

Your child will attend weekly live online classes that build skills and provide great experiences with terrific books — books that are filled with interesting characters, exciting storylines, and engaging themes. Between classes, your child will practice reading and complete fun interactive lessons that develop core skills and build confidence.

An Institute of Reading Development teacher will provide all the support and instruction your child needs to grow as a reader and student. Your child will get a jumpstart on the next school year and be ready to make it a big success!
