Leveling Up with Reading Plus

A local United Way reported that 24 girls ranging in ages from kindergarten through sixth grade spent last summer at a local Girls Inc. using the Learning Plus software and taking advantage of program support provided by Kintaro, Inc. During the eight-week pilot program, one-fourth of the participants moved up a grade level. Many others gained literacy skills and enhanced confidence in their reading abilities. One rising sixth grader in the group began the program reading at only a second-grade level but now feels much more confident in her abilities. The program’s success has prompted Girls Inc. to continue the program into the fall.
