Technology for teaching & learning One Product Multiple Solutions The Eduss solution gives the teacher complete flexibility in one solution to deliver true individualised differentiated instruction and intervention. Each one of these modules runs across Mathematics, English Grammar and Phonics-to-Reading.

Eduss xiteAch Eduss XiTeach - English & Phonics The Phonics-to-Reading program contains lessons and exercises to meet the needs of early childhood reading skills, intervention for older students with fundamental reading deficiencies, and for ESL students. The program is built around the recognized elements of reading: phonics, phonemic awareness, fluency, comprehension and vocab development. The program moves sequentially and methodically from individual sounds to blended sounds to whole words and sentences. The unique, simple code has the added advantage of enhancing spelling skills. Because developing reading skills rely on developing comprehension, the Eduss program includes comprehension exercises from K-6. As an added feature for ELL & ESL students supra segmental instruction is also included. Learning tools Dynamic diagnostic assessment � Individual student’s intervention � lesson plans
