Special Education

My students use Essential Skills Software programs everyday. I use Reading Comprehension with 3rd, 4th and 5th grades. I incorporate it into my daily lesson plan. I would certainly say that it is impacting their reading. All of my 32 kids (3rd, 4th & 5th graders) passed their North Carolina End Grade Test.

We try to have our students on ESS programs 3 times a week. This software is very helpful in addressing skill deficits and we have noticed an improvement in their reading. Our students really enjoy using the programs.

We use Essential Skills programs before state testing to help prepare our students. Reading Comprehension is especially helpful. Our kids love this software.

We use the Essential Skills programs everyday with the kids in K through 5. They love them! We feel the skills correlate well with the state standards. The software is wonderful. It is so easy to individualize for practice and retention of the specific skills. We have used this software on a daily basis for four years.

Mt. Vernon Elementary, Gainesville, Georgia

We use Essential Skills programs on a daily basis. The kids practically fight to get on the computer to use the programs from Essential Skills. We use Grammar and Writing Fundamentals with the older kids. These programs provide excellent practice and reinforcement of skills. The programs work wonders with IEP goals and objectives. This teacher created software is excellent.

Our special education teachers love Essential Skills software. We use it daily with students at all grade levels. Even our older children don't feel embarrassed using the software. It appeals to kids of all ages. The children love to show you their progress and they never tire of the programs.

We use Essential Skills software every day. Sight Words in particular is a favorite program. It is very colorful with lots of activity types for different learning styles. I never have a problem with the children not wanting to use the software. The children find it easy to use and there is no training involved. Even my youngest students can use the software. We love the auditory feedback that the program offers and the children also like being able to see their scores each day.

Students are using ESS programs three times a week. They really like the programs and are motivated by them. I have even had Junior High students using the programs. In my student assessments I have seen significant improvements.

Jamie Edmondson, Special Education Teacher
Chetopa School, Chetopa, Kansas

I can't begin to put into words what a difference these programs have made in the educational progress of the students with Downs Syndrome and other Special Needs. Repetition plays a large part in their daily work skills. Your programs present it in such a fun filled way, they have no idea that they are learning! The way the programs are designed is improving concentration and computer skills. We never dreamed that these students would progress as far as they have but with your wonderful programs it has happened.

Mary Blair, Special Education Instructional Assistant
Webster Elementary, Madera, California

We use your Reading Comprehension programs throughout the day with the students from grades one to six. Our assessments this year have indicated growth of 1 and 2 years in some of the children who are several years behind in reading. All our children want to use this software.
