This program is AMAZING! What it has done for my struggling readers is beyond belief. I love the fact that students have even noticed how helpful the program is and have even asked to be on it! I sing this program's praises to anyone who will listen!!!!!

I talked to a parent this fall and she sang the praises of the Read Live program. This is what she had to say, "Read Live has helped my daughter the most. She has been in school since she was 3 years old and she started Read Live last year. She is now in 9th grade and it's the BEST program we have had her enrolled in."

I watched the webinar (Foundational Reading Skills) today. 'Just want to thank you for such an excellent presentation. I am Orton-Gillingham certified, so couldn't help but notice that EVERYTHING presented was clearly research-based and considered the most effective way to work with struggling readers. ~ The more I get to know about the Read Live program, which I use with several students, the more I love it! Thank you to you and the Read Live staff for creating such an amazingly complete program! It's perfect for our Tier 2 interventions.

Thank you so much for taking the time to give the tutors an overview of the Read Live program and how to help the kids with their lessons. We started working with the students afterwards and they really like how they are now engaging with the kids and felt rewarded as much as the kids when passing a story. The program inherently provides structured learning and they can both feel good about the measured success and reward in a way that you don't see from just reading a book.


Nov 18, 2015


Thanks for answering my question. Your directions we easy to follow.


Nov 16, 2015


it really works good.


Nov 12, 2015


My students that are enrolled enjoy reading the stories. I like that it has vocabulary, fluency practice, and comprehension to go along with each story.


Nov 6, 2015

Because I've done READ LIVE for several years, I didn't think I needed the webinar. I was wrong. Thank you for reminding me about a few things I had learned in my initial training but had gone by the wayside. We'll be making a few changes to the way we deliver this program. I think we'll be more efficient and more effective, and our students will reap those rewards. Thanks again.

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!
