MindPlay and Mo. Intervention Specialist Featured in District Administration

Literacy intervention specialist from Springfield Public Schools says district relies on MindPlay.

April 10, 2020, Tucson, AZ— MindPlay online literacy publisher announced today that their reading program, MindPlay Virtual Reading Coach (MVRC), came to the rescue of a district where 18 percent of students tested at-risk for dyslexia. In the April 2020 edition of District Administration magazine, Lessons and Listening features Literacy Intervention Specialist Amanda McCaleb from Springfield (MO) Public Schools. McCaleb implemented MindPlay Virtual Reading Coach to assist students in need of extra literacy support. MVRC relies heavily on auditory instruction to teach vocabulary and grammar, she says, which comes in handy when intervention services are stretched.

“We can make learning accessible to students who might otherwise not be able to access grade-level content,” says McCaleb. She adds that audio support is also an important solution to ensure equitable access for struggling students.

The MindPlay online reading program offers screening, assessment, instruction delivered by speech pathologists, ongoing progress updates for teachers, parents, and school administrators,  and many more features.
