(Agoura Hills, CA: NECC BOOTH #1440—June 21, 2004)  ClickN’ KIDS, developer of comprehensive yet easy-to-use online educational software, will launch their flagship, state-of-the-art product, ClickN’ READ™, a complete online beginning reading program, at the National Educational Computing Conference June 21 – 23 in New Orleans.

Developed by professor, J. Ron Nelson, Ph.D., ClickN’ READ was derived from the extant research literature on effective reading instruction as reviewed and summarized by two independent research panels, National Academy of Sciences (NAS, 1998) and National Reading Panel (NICHD, 2000).

“ClickN’ READ represents the sound linkage of e-learning technology with scientifically-based instructional practices in the full range of skills necessary for proficient reading,” says Dr. Nelson. “ClickN’ READ allows educators and families to deliver scientifically-based beginning reading instruction to children unrestricted by geography or time.”

ClickN’ READ, which meets “No Child Left Behind” requirements, consists of 100 fully animated and interactive online lessons for intervention and supplemental reading instruction that are firmly rooted in scientifically based instructional practices.  ClickN’ READ’s innovative design provides individualized instruction and incorporates errorless learning which allows children as young as 4 years old to work independently. Comprehensive reports track student progress after each lesson as well as over time.

“Knowing that a chief complaint of educators nationwide is not having enough time to meet the reading intervention needs of students at risk of reading failure,” says Alan Scalone, President and Co-Founder of ClickN’ KIDS, “ClickN’ READ addresses this problem directly by providing extended learning and practice opportunities with minimal teacher time required.”

ClickN’ READ contains a scientifically based scope and sequence demonstrated to achieve proficient reading skills, relieving parents and teachers of the challenge of identifying an effective program. The program is easy-to-use and requires no special training for parents, teachers or students.  Whether to a single student or millions of students, ClickN’ READ delivers curriculum perfectly every time and can be used through any standard web browser, resulting in a highly effective teaching and time saving tool for teachers and parents.

“The online delivery of ClickN’ READ ensures that schools and home users always have the most up-to-date version of the software each time they log in,” says Armie Carabet, CEO and Co-Founder of ClickN’ KIDS. “There are no out-of-date CD ROM’s, broken videos, lost flash cards or other cost and time-intensive obstructions to interfere with quality and consistent instruction.”
