StudyDog helps special needs children learn to read
For special needs students, learning to read is often a difficult process. As kids go back to school, they might struggle with basic reading concepts, but with continued effort and an individualized approach to learning, special needs students can learn to read. Parents and teachers of children with special needs are using advancements in digital learning like StudyDog to help build reading skills.
“Technology is a wonderful tool for helping special needs children learn to read,” said Deme Clainos, CEO of StudyDog, an online reading program for elementary school students. “StudyDog allows children to learn at their own pace, while adjusting to unique learning needs and providing additional support in areas they are struggling with.”
Starting with alphabetic awareness, StudyDog guides each child through the process of learning to read up to a level of reading comprehension. The online software incorporates interactive characters and games that make children want to come back for more. Click here to visit the website to learn more about how the program works.

Communication from the characters is in a language that kids understand and react to in a very positive way,” said Dave Hall, a special education teacher at Heights Elementary School. “StudyDog is a valuable tool for me.”
