The stakes couldn’t be higher
Children who don’t transition from learning to read to reading to learn face a lifetime of risks.
- 70% of those reading below average in 1st grade will still be reading below average in 8th grade
- A child who doesn’t read is vulnerable to feelings of shame, failure, inadequacy, and depression
- 20% of the population struggles with symptoms of dyslexia

EDUCATORS AND PARENTS UNDERSTAND THE EARLYBIRD DIFFERENCE
This is a game-changer for parents. I was blown away by how much my son loved the game AND how I could help him based on the comprehensive results.
The best PD of the year. EarlyBird told us what, why, and how to use the data we got from EarlyBird. Organized, succinct!
EarlyBird was AWESOME!! The kids loved it and told me how fun it was. Some even asked when they could do it again. I really love the different animals and rewards - very motivating and engaging for the kids.
