Education, services and technology company Pearson announced today the launch of Get Ready to Read!-Revised (Get Ready to Read!-R), an early literacy screening tool. Get Ready to Read!-R was developed by Grover Whitehurst, Ph.D. and Christopher Lonigan, Ph.D. for the National Center for Learning Disabilities (NCLD) and is supported by norm-referenced standardized scores.
The program, designed for use with children ages 3-5 years, takes 10-15 minutes per child to administer. 25 questions help identify which step a child has reached on the path to becoming a successful reader.
