We recommend placing your student on the program that may seem simpler because it will allow you to be certain they have retained knowledge previously learned.

FOCUS ON VOCABULARY
Of the many compelling reasons for providing students with instruction to build vocabulary, none is more important than the contribution of vocabulary knowledge to reading comprehension. Indeed, one of the most enduring findings in reading research is the extent to which students’ vocabulary knowledge relates to the mind images created through cognitive learning and real world experience. Without a personal vocabulary stored in the brain, children cannot and will not read to their needed ability.
