Lexia Strategies

The Link Secondary School uses Lexia Strategies which is a web-based program that provides the targeted practice and instruction students need to develop their reading skills. As an added benefit, pupils can use Lexia Strategies at home.

Lexia Strategies was designed in response to the high number of older students requiring reading skills support. The program offers structured personalised practice to students (11 years to adult), using age appropriate content in a more mature interface.

Lexia Strategies is designed to increase automatic word recognition by reinforcing phonic elements and sound/symbol relationships. As students progress, they develop word-attack strategies, sight words, comprehension and vocabulary skills. Working independently, pupils quickly gain a sense of confidence and achievement.
