iRead is a foundational reading program designed to close the achievement gap before it begins and place ALL K–2 students on a predictable path to college and career. The adaptive curriculum was developed based on the latest research on cognitive science about how young children learn to read.
iRead takes students inside Beastie Hall, a virtual school led by a dynamic faculty specializing in foundational reading instruction. With the help of imaginative and engaging activities, iRead delivers the best in foundational reading instruction.
A Personalized Learning Progression for Each Student
The adaptive technology assesses performance in foundational reading and differentiates instruction based on each child's individual needs. The Student Software provides targeted, explicit instruction and systematic practice in phonological awareness, alphabet knowledge, phonics, decoding, word recognition, syntax, fluency, and morphology.
Embedded Assessment Ensures Children Are Taught to Mastery
The instructional design of the student Software is powered by the proven FASTT (Fluency and Automaticity through Systematic Teaching with Technology) algorithm, enabling children to master foundational reading by systematically moving information from short- to long-term memory. The FASTT algorithm leverages the power of adaptive technology to continuously monitor performance and customize the pacing, instructional load, and content for each child, ensuring instructional time is 100% optimized.

Ratings and Reviews
Just hard to login and the books are hard to do because you need to remember how to make it read to you.
Doesn’t work as supposed too
I received directions from my son school on how to “configure” this on an iPad. So I go to the settings on the iPad, find the iRead app, and there is no place to “configure” the app so it works for my child. I have all the information to configure it.....but, there’s no where to do this. Very disappointing. My son did this in school and now there’s no school, I’d love for him to continue. I wish they would fix this.
Developer Response ,
Please at your school for instructions on how to configure the app. If you are unable to contact the school, please contact HMH Customer Support for assistance at 1-800-283-5974.
Terrible cobbled together technology
This is one of the worst “educational” apps our child’s school offers. The iPad versions often doesn’t work correctly and require access to a dozen sites to function. The web version for computers requires flash which everyone including adobe wants to get rid of for security issues and performance.
Encourage you kids school to stop paying for this junk
