“Waterford had the highest positive effect on EOY Composite scores at the end of Kindergarten: students’ composite score can be expected to increase by .5 points for each minute increase in adjusted average weekly use.”
“[In first grade] For every additional minute of average weekly use of the Waterford program, students gain approximately .2 points on their EOY Composite scores.”

What Utah teachers are saying about Waterford

“This was the first year we had EVERY kindergarten student using the program and as teachers we noticed a HUGE difference in our overall scores at the end of the year. We have LOVED having all of our kiddos in the program and can't wait to use it again next year.”

“I love that this program fits the child's needs.
It reinforces concepts that they need extra help on or it moves them along when they ready. I think it is valuable for the whole class.”

“We have loved the program at our school.
 It has been a great tool to reinforce our
interventions and instruction!”
