The Lexia and Empower programs were expanded to all GECDSB elementary schools during the 2017-18 school year. Ten schools participated in the original Research Project for Learning Disabilities and pilot which provided a wealth of useful data to help students move forward in their reading skills.
The results of the study indicate that students using Lexia and Empower have had positive results in their reading performance, showing clear and sometimes remarkable improvement in their reading skills and abilities. There have also been secondary effects in other subjects, such as Math, and students have had an increase in their overall self-concept and well-being.
