Reading struggles are a reality for five to ten percent of our school population.

Increasing access to computers in a school directly allows schools to increase their Dynaread student population.

Dynaread offers science-based learn to read remediation specifically designed for older struggling readers (ages 7+). Dynaread runs online. As Dynaread is expanding into more and more schools, it is looking for ways to assist these schools by providing them with computers so that students can be helped.

Hans Dekkers, CEO of Dynaread states; “Many schools face decreases in their allocated budget for learning assistance. Traditional reading remediation programs often require a lot of one on one time. With these hour reductions, this results in a remediation dose which is not intense enough for these struggling readers to close the gap. This presents itself as yet another reason why schools are coming to Dynaread. Our learn-to-read program requires relatively little teacher supervision. Increasing access to computers in a school directly allows schools to increase their Dynaread student population. We see this enormous need and choose to launch Drive for Hardware to meet it!”

It is crucial to realize how in need these struggling readers are for help. The International Dyslexia Association reports that a researched minimum of 5% of school children fail to learn to read in spite of adequate instruction, motivation, and intelligence. A shocking 95% of these children reach Junior High undiagnosed and un-remediated. Research shows that 60% of prison inmates are well below the average literacy level, and 89% of adolescent suicides demonstrate profound language disorders.
