special needs students to helping all students become fluent readers.
These testimonials are just a sampling of numerous stories and research statistics that credit the MindPlay reading solution with changing the lives of both struggling and regular readers.
With the newly launched MindPlay Literacy program, all district students can now benefit from the integration of the flagship MindPlay Virtual Reading Coach with the MindPlay Diagnostic Universal Screener, and MindPlay Fluency focusing on fluency and comprehension instruction. Additionally, MindPlay Literacy provides in-depth professional development for teachers to support their understanding of evidence-based reading instruction including techniques for helping dyslexic students.
A total language arts solution, MindPlay Literacy provides a differentiated learning solution to evaluate the unique needs of each student. It automatically analyzes skill gaps and assigns and monitors their customized learning pathway through appropriate lesson modules. Modules are multi-sensory to appeal to a range of learning styles and include benchmark assessments. They are specifically designed to meet the needs of Tier I, Tier II and Tier III students from K through 12th grade.
How MindPlay Literacy Stands Out
MindPlay is a total solution for both teachers and students. MindPlay Literacy provides explicit, sequential, interactive, differentiated lessons. A money-back guarantee backs up the company’s promise of success. MindPlay Literacy is truly adaptive, guiding learners through prescriptive lessons, and re-teaching skills with fresh explanations and lessons until mastery is achieved.
“At MindPlay, we want to help all students become fluent readers quickly.” says MindPlay founder, Judith Bliss. “We have seen our product reverse the fortunes of many learners through helping them master skills they thought they never could and by instilling in them a new confidence. We are thankful to have touched so many lives and look forward to touching many more.”
Helping Administrators Sleep Better at Night
For principals and district administrators who face the challenges of managing budgets, strengthening home-school connections, and increasing learning outcomes for each and every student, MindPlay Literacy is the ideal solution. Adaptable to every K-12 district learner, cost-efficient at $34 per student per year (300 student minimum, discounts for larger quantities), and automatically generating data-based Parent Reports, the product saves time, money and streamlines communication with parents and the school. Every student gets the instruction s/he needs, when they need it, and the school a guarantee of moving the needle on Tier I, Tier II and Tier III readers.
Teacher Time-Saving and Support
MindPlay Literacy supports busy teachers by automating the time-consuming tasks of staying abreast of each student’s personal learning needs and assigning lessons or modules to ensure student growth. Each instructional component consists of lessons that include listening (auditory), reading (visual), and writing (kinesthetic), with such authentic exercises as persuasive and compare-and-contrast essays, business letter writing and other activities that align with most English language arts standards, as appropriate to grade level. Flexible online access allows students to take advantage of expanded learning opportunities outside of classroom hours, and encourages parent involvement in their children’s progress.
The Teacher Companion and Understanding Dyslexia educate and reinforce teachers’ knowledge of reading instruction. These programs allow for convenient, self-paced teacher professional development.
“We’re not just in the business of helping every student become a fluent reader. We are also in the business of helping teachers become proficient instructors of reading,” says Bliss.
Pricing and Availability
MindPlay Literacy is available online now to schools and school districts by subscription. Pricing is as low as $29 a student per year.
