Read Naturally Live has several improvements over SE. It is handy that I can access student's settings from their account so that while I am working with them I can adjust their goal quickly. The look of Read Nat. Live has been updated and just seems a little sharper. Simple access to the multiple choice questions right while I am working with a student is efficient and access to the suggested correct answer when reviewing answers to open ended questions is quite nice. It might be better if those answers were written in complete sentences since that is how I ask my students to answer the questions.

I still struggle with the user interface. Adding students, making groups and other tasks sometimes takes more effort and clicking around to find the correct screen than I like.

Joel, at Read Naturally ground zero has been a big help. Competent people to help me makes any problems that I face much less of a negative.

No one understood what I was asking, nor were they able to help.

Read Live is an excellent program for increasing reading fluency. My kids ( adolescents in middle and high school) also enjoy the program and it helps increase accuracy, comprehension, and critical thinking skills. I also like the vocabulary drills and how the program emphasizes vocabulary in context. Progress is consistent and is a successful experience for many learners who have only experienced failure in the past. I schedule my kids 2x per day for my therapy services with one session on Read Live and one session for their other language therapy work. It is programming that high risk adolescents in foster care and in the juvenile justice system are receptive to using. I highly recommend the Read Live program for at risk adolescents who have a language-literacy impairment.

I teach self-contained Jr. High students. Many of my students come to me in 7th grade only reading on a first or second grade level. They struggle with many issues that distract them. The stories in the Read Naturally program combined with the use of the I-Pads has proven to be a useful tool increasing their level each year at least 2 grade levels. The parents love the usefulness of being able to practice at home with the student. The students love to read the stories.


Oct 12, 2015


Some of my moderate to severe special needs middle school students use Read Naturally Live. The students are motivated by the nonfiction reading topics and the fact that they are working on reading skills on a computer or iPad. I had one student ask if he could use the Read Live program during his free choice time! That is certainly an indicator of how well students like the program. I see gains in students' reading fluency and comprehension skills while using the program. We love Read Naturally Live!


Oct 12, 2015


I think this program is a great tier 2 or 3 intervention for students who struggle with fluency and who need their comprehension monitored. It's been a good way for me to see more than one student at a time who may be at different reading levels.


Oct 8, 2015


I LOVE this program! It is great for all ages and I love that students can work at their own pace. The students can instantly see their progress by looking at their cold and hot timings.


Oct 1, 2015


We love your program! We are using it as an intervention for struggling readers. My students (mostly middle school) enjoy working with the program and love the variation of the different stories.


Sep 30, 2015


I used Read Naturally as an intervention problem for my lowest students. I found the program to be extremely engaging for my students. The stories peaked many of my students interest and they could hardly wait each day to get to work! The students were also motivated to improve each reading! I also found the format of typing comprehension responses very similar to our state standardized test. The benefits to the Read Naturally program are endless!

This program is wonderful it covers comprehension, vocabulary, and fluency,


Aug 19, 2015


Thanks for everything, Ben! Read Live has made such a difference in the lives of my middle school students who have struggled with reading. We see very good increases in all areas of reading including decoding, reading rate, prosody and comprehension. Test taking skills are supported as well. Best of all the students are really engaged and reading is no longer a dreaded chore while using Read Live. I appreciate your support over the last four years!

Kind regards,

This is an excellent resource for teachers. Students find the stories interesting. Students have improved their reading fluency and reading comprehension skills.

I was an Instructional Assistant at Monterey Road Elementary School for the 2014-2015 school year. I was responsible for helping groups of children who were below standard in improving their reading skills. Our school used the Read Naturally Live Program. We had a classroom converted to a computer lab and it was great! I saw so many children improve their reading ability that it excited me for my own two boys. I think this program is excellent in that it helps them to improve on their reading speed, comprehension and knowledge of words. I hope that this program can also be used for kids who don't necessarily have reading issues but to help them improve on comprehension or just pick up their speed and reading fluency. I'd like to see this program continue to be a regular part of their curriculum.

very helpful

We use Read Live as a fluency intervention piece for our literacy program. Students enjoy the interesting passages. The Live program allows students to easily get right to work and provides activities for students to do while waiting for teacher help. Read Live is a perfect fit for us!

This program is so easy to get up and running. It is highly motivating with the student choice options, the graphics and the timings. I notice the students really taking ownership of their learning and goals. The Read Along and Read Alone features provide valuable independent practice. I am able to continue with all of my other reading instruction without adding something new that is timely to learn and implement. It also provides good feedback on a weekly basis on what individual comprehension questions need to be addressed. I am very pleased with it.


Apr 11, 2015


Read Naturally is perfect for struggling readers. The material is high interest, so high interest in fact that students don't always want to move to the next level because they want to read the stories on the level they just graduated from! The online program makes it easy for students to do the comprehension questions and fix those they've missed. The vocabulary exercise while waiting for the teacher is also excellent. The most important predictor of whether a student will become a successful reader is the time he spends reading, and this program gives ample time and practice to reading, and the students feel rewarded as they improve their fluency. I highly recommend this program!


Apr 8, 2015


We have used Read Naturally for years and the students love the stories. We just started using Read Live last spring and it has all of the qualities that we love from Read Naturally but it is so much easier.


Apr 8, 2015


I have been using this program for a few months and my students have been making noticeable progress in all areas, especially reading fluency. This is a very motivating program and the progress monitoring is so helpful when discussing with parents and keeping data.


Mar 26, 2015


Read Naturally has been a great learning tool for many of our learners that struggle with reading. Not only has this program increased our learners' fluency, comprehension, vocabulary, but also their confidence! The program is learner driven and lets them choose their own stories. For educators, it is so user friendly. Customer service representatives are always helpful. Thank you so much!!!
