Helping Every Child Become a Capable and Confident Reader

Building reading skills is vital for a lifetime of success. Headsprout is an online kids reading program for Reception-Y6 students that provides teachers and parents with one adaptive, individualised reading solution.

The program is designed to tailor its instruction to the needs and learning pace of every student. Its patented research-based teaching methods have been tested and verified in real classroom environments to improve kids' reading skills at various reading levels, from non-readers and early readers to established readers already reading above their grade level.

The Headsprout System

It is a one-of-a-kind scaffolded teaching approach that automatically adapts so every student receives the individualised practice and instruction they need. With Headsprout, kids learn to read and read to learn. Early readers interact with engaging online episodes and read printable eBooks designed to instill key reading fundamentals like phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and beginning comprehension. Once readers have demonstrated a solid grasp of the basics, they move on to episodes created to teach the four primary components of reading comprehension: finding facts, making inferences, identifying themes, and learning vocabulary in context.

Headsprout has been rigorously tested and is the perfect online instructional resource for schools and parents looking for an effective, adaptive, and fun kids' reading program that is easy to implement and use. Every child can become a successful reader. Headsprout is the program that will help them reach that goal.
