16 Apps That Motivate Kids to Read | Literacy | Scoop.it

"For every kid who is caught hiding beneath his covers with a flashlight and a novel at midnight, there is another who has to be begged and pleaded with to read.  And the latter might need a little extra—shall we call it encouragement?—to become a great reader. To help, we've rounded up a list of the top apps that not only teach essential reading skills but also motivate kids—even the most book-phobic—to read, read and read some more."

"It is my understanding that many of these screening tests have low costs that would significantly lower what it would cost to remediate a bunch of third- to fifth-graders who are two or more years behind," said Barnes of Plumstead Township.

Barnes says early intervention is critical for children with dyslexia so they can get the appropriate education..."
