offered by Society for Quality Education. The program they offer is very comprehensive and uses systematic phonics to teach reading. A placement test is available to determine your child’s approximate reading level. Best of all, it’s a really good free program. We’ve used it and have enjoyed it, especially the bingo game. It’s free so what do you really have to lose?
