The Reading Acceleration ProgramThe team at the Unit for Software Development develops innovative and creative web-based software used for intervention and research investigations in the field of Learning Disabilities. This software is widely used by teachers and research investigators around the world. The software acts as a platform for diverse assessment and treatment programs. The Reading Acceleration Program (RAP) is one of the most advanced programs in this platform. It is an innovative, interactive, individualized computerized web application for improving reading-fluency and reading-comprehension skills. Click here for further reading.
