SOLO by Don Johnston

Supports Reading and Writing for Struggling Students

Don Johnston Incorporated has combined its existing programs, Co:Writer (word prediction), Draft:Builder (graphic organizer) and Write:OutLoud (talking word processor) with a new addition, Read:OutLoud (text reader), into a new software solution, SOLO.

SOLO provides an integrated solution to help students build skills and utilize strategies as they use guided supports for reading comprehension and structured models for writing.

Educators can use SOLO to differentiate instruction and oversee their students’ reading and writing development. SOLO enables teachers to take any content and adjust their presentation of information to meet the needs of diverse classrooms. They can create customized assignments for individual students or groups of students. Qualitative and quantitative data can be collected from student work and displayed in graph, chart and preview form.
