Reading. It’s key to your child’s future.

EarlyBird combines early identification of reading struggles with intervention that provides mastery of foundational skills.

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.
