Reading Assistant Program From Scientific Learning Wins 2012 Award of
Excellence From Tech & Learning
OAKLAND, Calif., Nov. 14, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Reading Assistant™
program from Scientific Learning Corp. (OTCQB:SCIL) was named a winner in the
30^th annual Awards of Excellence by Tech & Learning magazine. The online
reading program was selected by a panel of educators who tested and evaluated
more than 160 education technology products in the prestigious recognition
"As schools continue to have to do more with less, buying the right solution
for your district needs is more important than ever," said Kevin Hogan,
editorial director for NewBay Media's Tech & Learning Group. "Tech & Learning
is proud to present these recommended products that have been put to the test
by our experienced educational team of judges."
The Reading Assistant program provides individualized online reading coaching
for every student. It is the only reading program that "listens" to students
as they read out loud, intervenes when the student needs help, and
automatically scores students' oral reading. It helps students rapidly
strengthen vocabulary, fluency, and comprehension, maximizing their ability to
read to learn. With Reading Assistant, students can improve their reading
grade level up to 50 percent more than students receiving classroom
"We constantly hear from schools and districts how Reading Assistant benefits
students of a wide range of ages and ability levels, including beginning
readers, English language learners, struggling readers, and even more advanced
readers who are reading on grade level," said Robert C. Bowen, CEO of
Scientific Learning. "This year, we made the program even easier to implement
by providing online access, making it available for school or home use. It's
very rewarding to know that the educators who tested Reading Assistant,
alongside many other education technology products, recognize the innovation
and effectiveness of this solution. We're honored to receive this award, which
is so highly regarded among educators."
The Reading Assistant program was recognized in the Best Upgraded Products
category of the Awards of Excellence. This category honors already-released
products that have made significant enhancements and evolved with the changing
technology to continue to offer the highest quality experiences for educators
and students. Reading Assistant will appear in the December 2012 Awards Issue
of Tech & Learning and at www.TechLearning.com.
