Read Live

Read Live is a web-based intervention and assessment program. It provides students with differentiated instruction that supports fluency, phonics, vocabulary, and comprehension. Students learn key vocabulary important to the stories they are reading and make predictions about what will happen next. Students learn proper pronunciation, expression, and phrasing by quietly reading aloud with a recording of the story.

Dragon NaturallySpeaking

Dragon assists students with language-based learning differences by turning spoken words into printed words. Many students with language-based learning differences experience difficulty transferring their ideas to writing, and Dragon allows the writing process to become easier and more efficient. Students speak into a headset or microphone as the software turns their speech into words on their computer screen.

Learning Ally

Learning Ally is the world's largest library of audio textbooks and literature. Many of the textbooks Woodlynde students use are available through Learning Ally. By listening to the book while following along visually with the text, students improve reading comprehension, increase vocabulary, and improve fluency.


WYNN is a literacy software tool aimed to enhance success for students with reading and writing challenges. The program highlights text as it is read, transforming printed text into understandable information and improving reading and writing fluency, encoding and decoding, and comprehension.
