is now Free

Welcome to LEXIA

LEXIA is a nonprofit corporation that provides free lesson planning resources for teachers who use phonics-based methods for literacy instruction for students with dyslexia and other learning disabilities.


WordSpring and Scope and Sequence, Lexia's two outstanding lesson planning resources, are now available without charge. We hope that by making these resources free more teachers will use them and thereby be able to provide better literacy instruction to their students. We thank our many supporters for making this possible.
