With the closures of our schools and other learning establishments, AZ IDA wants to share an online resource that may help your struggling readers in these challenging and uncertain times.
MindPlay Virtual Reading Coach (MVRC) is an online program that provides evidence-based instruction!
Now until June 7th, we are accepting applications for a free trial of MVRC. All trials will end June 21, 2020. There is no obligation to purchase and no credit card required!
At the end of the trial you will have the option to purchase your own license —through the AZ IDA — for $150 (half off retail price of the Annual Plus with Premium Support package.)
This opportunity is open to all Arizona residents with dyslexia and/or literacy challenges.
MVRC is an effective online reading program that improves reading abilities. It permits students with diverse skills and unique needs to read with control and precision. With MVRC, your child will start with the Universal Screener which identifies his or her areas of concern through several screening processes. Once completed, your child will jump right into an individually prescribed learning program, designed specifically for them. MindPlay covers all the fundamentals of reading including Phonemic Awareness, Phonics, Vocabulary, Comprehension, Fluency, and an additional component called Grammar for Meaning.
MVRC has been proven to help students with a wide range of abilities. Adequate for all ages, it can serve as an online reading program for students within a wide range of proficiency levels.
- Aligns with individual state and Common Core standards for reading and language art
- Utilizes patented Synthetic Intelligence
- Provides interactive lessons with media-rich content
- Content based on Orton-Gillingham (OG) methodology
- Provides Certified Speech Pathologists as reading coaches for every student
- Intensifies instruction for struggling readers
When the program is used for 30-minutes a day, five days a week minimum, improvement in basic reading skills can be seen in the first month. In most cases, the average student using the program at home improves one grade level every 10 weeks (20 hours).
Listen to Aiden’s experience as a 2nd grader with dyslexia and what less than two years of MVRC has helped him to achieve.
MindPlay programs are designed to run with minimal system requirements on limited bandwidth in order to make them as accessible as possible. MRVC can be used on desktop computers as well as tablets and many mobile devices.
