Janesville, Wisconsin"Teachers are loving Snap&Read. The fact it changes the text complexity has really gotten people excited. And we know it will get better and better. And, the data being collected from Co:Writer is helping teachers understand the importance of vocabulary development. uPAR is really helping teachers see that students are learning (even if they can't read the conventional way!) Students get to "see" that they are smart and understand the material."

"Universal" is the Key Word for Success
Casper, WYThe biggest thing for our AT department in our school district is the "Universal" in Snap&Read Universal and CoWriter Universal. Our district has a WIDE variety of devices to support. The "Universal" programs allow us to provide a solution and professional development for our staff and students. The students also have the ability to log onto Snap&Read and/or CoWriter at home, which allows us to not have to provide a dedicated device. Both tools have a myriad of functions, but are easy to use.
