Level 2: Reading Skill & Fluency
Critical Tools for Students

The online READING SKILL SERIES developed by Scientific Learning increases processing
efficiency and builds critical reading skills. No other reading intervention program offers a more
scientifically proven approach to helping students quickly improve skills. Instant feedback and
engaging exercises help motivate students to achieve success.

There are 5 levels in the Reading Skills Series. Each level incorporates the same underlying
cognitive skills as the required Cognitive Skill Builder programs and builds on the skills
introduced in the preceding levels.

    Reading Level 1 builds critical early reading skills, with an emphasis on phonemic
    awareness, early decoding skills, vocabulary knowledge and skills, and motivation for
    reading.

    Reading Level 2  consolidates early reading skills, with a focus on applying phonics and
    decoding strategies, improving word recognition, and understanding the rules for reading
    comprehension.

    Reading Level 3  builds on the  Reading Level 2 product by concentrating on reading
    knowledge and fluency, with a focus on phonology and spelling, morphological properties
    and complexity, syntactic complexity, vocabulary and comprehension.

    Reading Level 4 exercises expand reading skills by applying knowledge of word origins,
    word forms, sentence structures, and punctuation rules to improve comprehension.

    Reading Level 5 expands earlier reading skills by applying knowledge of word origins,
    word forms, sentence structures, and punctuation rules to improve comprehension. It
    concentrates on enhancing advanced reading comprehension and expanding vocabulary
    skills.

Reading Fluency & Comprehension Proficiency
Reading Assistant software combines advanced speech recognition
technology with scientifically-based interventions to help students
strengthen their reading fluency, vocabulary and comprehension.

Reading Assistant acts as a patient, non-judgmental listener for
emerging, struggling or self-conscious readers. Trainers or teachers
receive assessment reports and can listen to audio samples of their
students as if they had been sitting next to their students, listening. It
can be used either at the Lab or at home.

The software maintains careful performance records and the
corresponding audio of each reading session for review by student and
teacher. The program computes the students words correct per minute
automatically.
