Read Write & Type - Educational Reading Software Program

Kids Love Read, Write & Type AND It Works!

The Read, Write & Type is based on the most effective methods of reading instruction, and years of research in brain development. The program itself has been rigorously tested in elementary classrooms for over 10 years, producing significant improvements in reading. RWT brings together the fundamental principles of reading instruction, with an emphasis on writing as a route to reading, in a program packed with visually exciting and engaging games and challenges.

One School District's Success Story Using RWT

The Los Altos Unified School District in California, has been using RWT since 1991, at first testing the prototype (called Talking Fingers), and then upgrading to Read, Write & Type. In 1999, Los Altos achieved 1st place in the state of California for fourth grade reading scores!

In the March 31, 1999 issue of Education Week, Jane Croom, a parent of two children from the original project , related a personal story: her 7th grade son, who began using the program in first grade, now writes extensively and types 100 words per minute.
