COVID-19 Learning Loss

COVID Learning Loss is Real. So Are the Ways EarlyBird Can Help.

With remote learning behind us, classroom teachers are still feeling the effects of learning loss. Skill deficits are real and teachers are being asked to teach at instructional levels that are below their normal grade level. EarlyBird assessment offers teachers proven tools to identify skill deficits, as well as the materials needed for targeted intervention. With EarlyBird, teachers can look at individual student scores, adjusting instruction for either whole or small groups to help close the gap from the COVID learning loss.

Early Literacy Screening

Reducing Special Education Referrals and Improving Reading Scores? That’s the Idea!

What if there was a way to reduce special education referrals while improving district reading scores? Or proactively identify the students who are at risk for dyslexia? Or provide instructional support for those students during the most effective intervention window? EarlyBird helps educators reduce special education referrals and improve district reading scores through early literacy screening and detection.

Reading Fluency

Fluency Has a Check Engine Light. Who knew?

Rapid Automatized Naming (RAN) is the ability to quickly and accurately name objects, pictures, colors, letters or numbers. Measures of RAN offer an inside look at how well a student can retrieve stored data, which can help predict later reading fluency.  The predictive quality leads some to think of RAN scores as a direct measure of reading abilities. This is not always the case.

5 Components of Reading

The 5 Components of Reading: What they Are. Why they Matter.

To address the national reading crisis, as well as identify students at risk for dyslexia, the National Reading Panel identified the most effective components in teaching children to read: phonemic awareness, phonics, vocabulary, fluency, and comprehension. Performance in each component is key to a student’s future literacy. Without a comprehensive assessment, teachers often miss deficits, which can lead to students not receiving the help they need.

Identifying Struggling Readers

Don’t Judge Young Readers by Their Cover

Without a comprehensive approach to screening for foundational literacy skills, students often get overlooked — until until second grade, or sometimes even later. More complex texts mean they can no longer rely on memorizing words and picture clues. Deficits in decoding begin to surface.  We frequently hear teachers say, “How did you get this far without knowing how to read?”
