Through innovative, effective, and proven literacy solutions, we give students and teachers confidence in their own abilities, as well as in ours. Our solutions are built upon the science of reading and structured literacy, delivering the systematic and explicit instruction learners need to truly comprehend, retain, and apply literacy foundations. Our technology strengthens the relationship between teachers and students, helping them build connections that lead to trust, understanding, and true learning. It blends artificial intelligence with human intelligence to enhance, support, and inform literacy teachers without ever replacing them. We are pioneers in integrated assessment, delivering technology that replaces the disruption and administrative burden of traditional testing with continuous data and performance visibility. At Lexia we hold ourselves to the highest standards of efficacy through published, peer-reviewed research that validates and measures our claims.
