In these uncertain times, students everywhere will benefit from familiarity and consistency. We are so grateful that our most popular program, Read Live, can be used in a distance-learning model to provide this kind of support.

As a web-based program, Read Live is ideally suited for use in a distance-learning model. Teachers can set up Read Live so that students access their lessons from any iPad or computer. Students work through the independent steps of the program on their own and collaborate with a teacher or parent on the steps requiring teacher involvement. Together, the teacher and the student determine the combination that works best for each learner.
