Lexia Learning, a Rosetta Stone® company, has launched “Lexia Strategies for Older Students” for iPad®, available as part of the latest version of the Lexia Reading® App. The app provides multi-sensory learning for remedial students in grades 6 and above, helping them develop their foundational reading skills through an age-appropriate interface.

Lexia Strategies for Older Students® is available at the Apple app store as part of the Lexia Reading App, which also includes the Lexia Early Reading® and Lexia Primary Reading® programs for grades K–4. To access the app, users must have an active Lexia license.

If a student begins to struggle, the program provides scaffolding, simplifying the task so that the student can practice that skill with additional support. Once he demonstrates proficiency in this practice environment, the student returns to the standard task to continue in the program.

While students are working independently in the online activities, Lexia’s embedded assessment system, Assessment Without Testing®, provides educators with performance data without interrupting the flow of instruction.
