The Foundations Learning System™ is the premier reading app that allows for anytime, anywhere access to the innovative research- and evidence-based blended assessment and intervention program. Teachers can use the app to diagnose struggling readers and help them develop automatic word recognition — the critical bridge between phonics and fluency.
The Foundations Learning System™ has 5 components:
-A quick online screener to identify whether students have deficits in automatic word recognition skills.
-An online diagnostic that identifies specific gaps in decoding knowledge & measures automaticity of word recognition.
-Online intervention that personalizes instruction based on the principles of the Varied Practice Model.
-Curriculum guides for teachers so they can extend, reinforce and deepen the learning provided through the online instruction.

The Foundations Learning System™ meets the needs of those students who have struggled to make adequate progress using traditional tools.

What are educators saying about Foundations Learning System™?
“I saw remarkable growth in my students’ ability to tackle longer, multisyllabic words. This translated to better fluency and confidence for my resource language arts students. When students took the Foundations Learning System™ seriously and committed their time and attention, they made on average 1.8 years of growth as measured on the Qualitative Reading Inventory.” Christina Sorenson, Leander, TX
“Students with severe reading difficulties were reading. The most wonderful blessings were watching them succeed for the first time and feel like true readers.” Marsha Allen, Santa Fe, NM
“(The Foundations Learning System™) has helped with confidence, oral reading, fluency and decoding skills. My goal is that they feel more empowered to become lifelong readers, even if aspects of it are hard.” Jill Powell, Sioux Falls, SD
