    Research Validations

    Reading Buddy is specially designed for grades 2 and 3 when fluency skills development matters the most.

    A 2015 study of primary school children in third grade found that children who made inappropriate pauses, mistakes in content, and inconsistencies in pitch—all indications of an oral fluency struggle—were less skilled in reading comprehension later on.

    Another Research report says there is a positive relationship between reading fluency and school outcomes across school levels (primary, secondary, and high school), after controlling the effect of reading comprehension.
