Los Altos Hills, CA (PRWEB) November 08, 2012

Officials at StudyDog, an online reading program that helps children master the basics, have recently made upgrades to the system that will benefit both parents and children. Improvements were made to the Parent Center section of the site to help make account management and payments easier. Three new e-books have also been added to the library of existing offerings, giving parents new reading materials to enjoy with their child.

Parents may monitor their child’s reading progress from the Parent Center with real-time reporting and detailed updates of where their child stands. Parents may also have the reports sent to them by email without having to log in. The Parent Center includes a variety of offline learning aids including the new e-books and worksheets that reinforce key reading skills.

“We take pride in offering the best online reading program for early readers. We are always making updates and improvements to the StudyDog system to keep parents, teachers and most importantly, students happy,” said Deme Clainos, CEO of StudyDog.

What makes StudyDog different from other reading programs is it adapts to each child’s unique needs while introducing and reinforcing reading fundamentals until the child has mastery of the subject area. The program uses fun and engaging characters that make kids want to come back to learn.

The StudyDog system examines each child’s reading progress and determines which steps should be taken to adjust to their unique needs and reading levels.

“At StudyDog we are so confident that parents will be satisfied with the progress their child is making that we will give a full refund if they are not,” Clainos said. “Every child has their own way of learning. With StudyDog, children learn at their own pace. The system is able to hone in on their specific needs, while making learning to read fun.”

The StudyDog system teaches five areas of reading comprehension: phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary and comprehension. Lessons can be accessed from any computer, making it possible to log in at home, school and other locations.

For pre-kindergarten children, Clainos said StudyDog “focuses on phonemic awareness to prepare a child to be able to handle phonics successfully. This is an important area because most students who struggle in higher grades do so because they were not adequately prepared for phonics.”

StudyDog also has lessons for higher grade levels:

  •     The kindergarten level focuses on phonics while covering nine other critical reading skills. StudyDog gives positive reinforcement for successes and encourages children to continue trying when a concept isn’t clear.
  •     First grade lessons reinforce the five key areas of reading comprehension and continue to coach the child for further development with contractions, complex words and vowel sounds.

StudyDog even helps older students. “In grades two and three, if your child is experiencing difficulties, StudyDog can get them back on track,” Clainos explained.

A free, seven-day trial is available for parents interested in seeing if StudyDog is right for their child. More information can be found at https://www.studydog.com/parents/trial/.
