Research proves it. The best time to identify reading issues is early. Reading interventions in kindergarten and first grade are up to three times significantly more effective than those made later. That’s why we developed EarlyBird. EarlyBird is a breakthrough assessment tool that empowers educators, parents, and clinicians to replace the old “wait to fail” paradigm, with a proactive, preventive tool to identify and support children at risk – in the window when intervention is most effective. EarlyBird is an easy to administer solution that is game-based and combines proven predictors of reading.
Helping families give children a life rich with the practical, personal and professional rewards of reading. That’s EarlyBird.
