As part of the Hicksville Public School District’s continuing efforts to improve the academic performance for all students, we have partnered with Scientific Learning to provide a comprehensive, research-based, reading intervention program that uses proven to strengthen brain processing and literacy skills to increase reading proficiency of students.
Scientific Learning products are based on research establishing the fact that boosting the brain’s processing efficiency accelerates quality learning. It’s called “brain plasticity”, which refers to the brain’s ability to change at any age throughout life. Scientific Learning uses electronic software products to exercise processing skills through intensive, adaptive activity to create actual physical changes in the brain resulting in changes of ability in learning and reading success. The program builds foundational reading and language skills while improving memory, attention and processing rates to improve student performance across the curriculum.
