We love hearing from you!

 

How we are different from the countless other reading programs out there?

Ask our fans. We hope you'll become a fan too! 

All three of my children are reading above grade level.

I cannot say enough good things about this program. I am now using Explode the Code online with my third child who asks daily if she gets to go on today. All three of my children are reading above grade level. I could not be more pleased with their reading progress or with this product which has been a large part of that progress. -Brenda S.

I love the teacher's dashboard.

My 5-year-old son has been using Explode The Code for about a month now and loves it. There is a clear improvement in his reading and pronunciation since he has started. I love the teacher's dashboard. It helps me keep track of the time he has spent playing. It also lets me know how he is doing on each of the assignments. His favorite part is that he earns a badge after every assignment, not a grade. I will be happy to post updates in the future. But, if asked for my opinion, I would recommend this to anybody and everybody looking for a way to teach their child to read. -Eddie Y.

In less than two weeks, she has started trying to sound out words in her books.

My husband and I ordered Explode-The-Code as a last ditch effort to get our 2nd grader to become interested in learning to read. As soon as our login arrived, she dove in a started "playing". In less than two weeks, she has started trying to sound out words in her books. Her skills level have risen and her confidence soared. She loves earning the butterflies and bees, often working for an hour or more, even after I've told her she could stop. We are really impressed with how quickly this program worked for her, and plan to order it again next year for our son. -Lisa B.

I have to say, ETC Online goes above and beyond my expectation. It is everything it claims to be.

I use this with my two younger children, ages 5 and 8. Both children use the computer regularly and have no tolerance for cheesy computer games and programs. For the past two years I have used the ETC workbooks with the 8 year old, and I was nervous trying the Online format. I have to say, ETC Online goes above and beyond my expectation. It is everything it claims to be. My children love it and ask to do it every day. They are excelling in phonics, and strive to "earn the Airplane" in every unit. The program is challenging, but because its leveling is automatic, it's never frustrating. I give it 5 stars! -C. O.

We have battled for 2 years with 4 different phonics curriculums to get (my son) to read. We started using the ETC online and he LOVES it!

I have a 6 year old (almost 7). I've had a difficult time teaching him to read. He loses interest quickly and has a very difficult time putting his blends together to sound out words. We have battled for 2 years with 4 different phonics curriculums to get him to read. We started using the ETC online and he LOVES it! He asks to do phonics every day and I can get 25 minute lessons in easily. He loves that after completing his daily assignments he is rewarded with a short online game. This curriculum has been a lifesaver for our family! My son is progressing better than ever and I no longer feel like I need to get him tested for learning disabilities! (Yes, it was getting to that point.) -Eliane O.

I have recommended ETC online to every parent that I know who is concerned about their child's progress in reading.

I love using Explode the Code Online! I used it with my oldest who went from reading on a 2nd grade level to a 5th grade level in one year. She is a great speller as well, and I attribute a lot of her success to ETC. I am now using it with my younger child and I am seeing progress with him as well. My kids like using the computer for their practice rather than another workbook. I really appreciate the reports and the auto-leveling features because I know that my child can't move on until he has mastered the level. It forces him to focus and attend to his practice if he wants to move forward. I have recommended ETC online to every parent that I know who is concerned about their child's progress in reading. -Erica F.

I tell everyone about this program. In my job I get to help other families like mine with special needs kids and this is one of the best programs on the market.

I love Explode the Code, because is very simple to use and teaching comprehension. I will continue to use it year after year until my boys complete the entire program. I tell everyone about this program. In my job I get to help other families like mine with special needs kids and this is one of the best programs on the market. -Jo C.

Finally, a program that teaches skills at a developmentally and age-appropriate level and puts the emphasis back on systematic, progressive phonics instruction, where it belongs.

My 5 year old loves this program. It's interactive and appealing without being overloaded with graphics, so that the focus stays on the language-based lesson content. Finally, a program that teaches skills at a developmentally and age-appropriate level and puts the emphasis back on systematic, progressive phonics instruction, where it belongs. My reluctant reader is no longer turned off by the mention of reading, because he sees himself making progress, as do I through the highly detailed post-lesson assessments. As a former K-5 classroom teacher and now homeschooling parent, I am pleased to have found a program that is the mainstay of my emergent reader instruction. I plan to use this in a few years again with my youngest child. -Heather C.

We have used what seems like every other program out there. This one was fun and they learned so much and we're able to retain the information.

I have 9 year old twins and they had a hard time picking up reading. We started using ETC when they were 8 years old and it changed our lives. We have used what seems like every other program out there. This one was fun and they learned so much and we're able to retain the information. I love that it is online and the program decides when they have mastered it. I am able to step back and let them learn. -Sue M.

I love the tracking system!

I love the tracking system! My child is improving and he gets excited when I show him the graph. I have told many people about ETC online and I will continue to use it. -K. J.

Explode the Code has helped my son with phonemes and word fluency.

Explode the Code has helped my son with phonemes and word fluency. It seems like after two days of using it, something just clicked. We will continue to use it in the future. Overall, it's a great program and I'm glad that we found it. -J. B.

ETC was recommended to me by a fellow special needs parent. I'm glad I followed her recommendation.

ETC was recommended to me by a fellow special needs parent. I'm glad I followed her recommendation. It's so easy for my son to do while steadily building up his reading skills. It doesn't frustrate him, which is very important to me. I find it better than offline intervention. -Cris E.

After only one week, (I'm not making this up!) his therapist came out and told me his reading had dramatically improved!

My ten year old takes vision therapy for issues he has processing information. He has always struggled with reading. After only one week, (I'm not making this up!) his therapist came out and told me his reading had dramatically improved! We had not done any school work over the summer, and he had only just started back to school with the Eplode-The-Code program. He did do the program a lot that first week because he was enjoying it, the "fun" button was a great incentive and he was actually asking to do extra work. That has been a couple of weeks ago now, and his reading continues to improve and his self confidence does too. This program has been a great blessing to my family. -P. A.

It has been asset to us because he greatly improved his phonics skills, made phonics less of a chore and its not cluttered with flashy characters that distract from the task at hand.

My son has been using Explode the Code online for two years now. It is straightforward and simple to use. It reinforces the skills that they learn in the workbook program. It has been asset to us because he greatly improved his phonics skills, made phonics less of a chore and its not cluttered with flashy characters that distract from the task at hand. I have told many friends about this program and my middle son will start using it soon also. -S..

The grading system is unique and readily visible to see how the student is doing. Very professional and thought out well.

It is a wonderful program that is fast paced and simple to use. My daughter loves it and has improved greatly since using it. The grading system is unique and readily visible to see how the student is doing. Very professional and thought out well. -Dan I.

After just one week, she is officially a READER!!!

We started using ETC online for my 4 (almost 5) year old. After just one week, she is officially a READER!!! She LOVES ETC and winning the buttons. To see her accomplish her goal to learn to read in such a short time and all while having fun....it's just awesome! -Keara H.

I have a special needs daughter...Explode the Code online is working so much better than anything else I have ever used�

I have a special needs daughter, that is mentally delayed. We have previously used Explode the Code workbooks for her, but she has to see a word many times before it sinks in. Explode the Code online is working so much better than anything else I have ever used, because it tracks her progress, and keeps repeating the work until she gets it. I feel like we may now have a chance at her becoming a reader! -Romona B.

Our son...has progressed in his reading by nearly an entire grade level, in just 1 month of using Explode the Code online!

Our son, who has struggled in reading up to this point, has progressed in his reading by nearly an entire grade level, in just 1 month of using Explode the Code online! He uses the program almost every day, and he's often so excited that he completes about 10 lessons at a time! -K. W.

I am MORE THAN PLEASED with my son's reading progress with this instruction. I am ECSTATIC!!!

I heard about Explode the Code from a friend who uses the workbooks. I realized the program comes highly rated from people like Cathy Duffy and others. I chose this online subscription because I didn't want any more paper work than necessary for my son's first year of school. I considered this online subscription a good deal more attractive than the paper series as well. I desired the reading progress reporting that the program provides, so that I can easily see his reading is on track. We began in January 2013. I taught my son to read with Bob books over the summer, and his reading sounded rather robotic and choppy. We went through his fall semester of school, and I had him reading McGuffey Reader lessons to me with progress that was fine but rather slow. I began to wonder if I needed some more instruction. At the beginning of Spring semester, I subscribed to Explode the Code. At first, I encouraged my son to earn 2-3 buttons at a time. Once he was comfortable working the computer program, I encouraged earning 5 butterfly buttons each time we sit down for a sessions (three times per week). It is now April 2013. I am MORE THAN PLEASED with my son's reading progress with this instruction. I am ECSTATIC!!! In three months time exactly, he has worked through the first four books out of eight accessible. His reading is smooth, confident, and most importantly, he now considers reading something that is personally enjoyable for him with his new abilities! In the last month, my son picked up a book of his own accord and was enjoying himself so much that he wanted his brother and sister to be quiet so he could focus on finishing reading his own story. He can read on a second grade level now, which is beyond his school year. The program progresses the child as he is ready, so the challenge is always appropriate for the particular child- FABULOUS! The activities are worthwhile, and the child receives feedback constantly which is probably an immeasurable contribution to reading progress! I do sit with my son as he works through this program. As the teacher, you can manually place the child in the lesson you consider best (although I have not done this at all). I let him work the natural progress of the program. In three months time, I just can hardly believe the major leap in my son's reading abilities! I have recommended this product to several others, and I intend to use it for my other two children who are coming right along behind my son. Thanks, Explode the Code Online!!! -Sarah.

We have tried a few other programs for my 7 year old daughter but she just wasn't getting it. We decided to try Explode the Code Online and WOW! It clicks with her!

We have tried a few other programs for my 7 year old daughter but she just wasn't getting it. We decided to try Explode the Code Online and WOW! It clicks with her! She's been using it only a month so far at 20 min a day and I must say, she is making wonderful progress. We are very pleased with the format and the results we're seeing. -Tina H.
