The EarlyBird Assessment was developed and scientifically validated at Boston Children’s Hospital in partnership with faculty at the Florida Center for Reading Research.
Pip School, our instructional game, was designed for children ages 4-9 years old, using a research-based approach.
The risk of waiting is too high – and reading challenges are preventable!
Research has proven that addressing reading problems early prevents them from happening later.
Risk of reading challenges can be identified in pre-readers
With early and effective instruction, over 90% of children will become readers
½ hour of instruction in Kindergarten is equivalent to 2 hours in 4th grade

EarlyBird. Affirmation for parents. Fun for kids
Personalized, “test and instruct” approach
EarlyBird’s assessment shows data on your child’s reading abilities & identifies strengths and weaknesses. If they require intervention, we help your child master the research-proven foundational skills for learning to read.
Engaging, interactive games that kids love
Kids across the nation agree – EarlyBird is fun! Unlike traditional assessments or intensive intervention programs, EarlyBird uses games to test your child’s early reading ability AND delight them as they unlock the reading code.
Customized support and action plans
Receive comprehensive reports on your child’s mastery of skills, work closely with our Literacy Specialists to personalize your child’s learning journey, and access informative “Pip For Parents” resources.
Parents like me really need to know where their kids are on reading skills and building blocks given COVID-19 disruption and learning gaps. EarlyBird did just that.
I’m so in love with the program and the results we are seeing already. It’s amazing! I love it and I’m so happy I found you guys.

I had nobody to compare my child to. And I’m not an educator so it’s extremely overwhelming to do your own research. I don’t know what’s reliable. Thank you EarlyBird for helping me understand what reasonable expectations are for my child.
My child just loves EarlyBird. She is so engaged and loves the little rewards they get after each game.
