HOW OFTEN SHOULD A STUDENT USE THE LTK SOFTWARE?
Answer
Students gain maximum benefit if the LTK® At Home software is used 3-4 times per week in periods of 30-45
minutes. The first 22 lessons are 60-90 minutes in length. Lessons 23 and beyond last for 30-45 minutes each.
Students using the program with this level of focus will experience improved reading skills within 2 weeks!
A
student who begins with lesson 1 and completes all 87 lessons will require 120-160 hours to complete the entire
program and will be reading at an approximate grade level of 8.5.

STUDENTS
Question
Is LTK appropriate for students with learning disabilities?
Answer
LTK was designed for this type of student. Those with learning disabilities, specifically dyslexia, require a very
controlled approach to reading instruction. The
Orton-Gillingham method is the most-researched and
most-proven technique ever devised to address the needs of this type of student. That's what's inside LTK.

Questions
Do students have to begin at lesson 1?
Is there a placement test?
Answer
There is a Placement Test within the program that can be used to determine the student's current reading level.
After completing the
LTK Placement Test, the student is automatically placed at the appropriate beginning lesson  
number. For the LTK At Home and LTK For Kids programs, you can access this program from the What Do You
Want To Do program. If using LTK For Schools, this function is accessible from the Lesson Plan tab of the
Instructor Menu, and can be set for all newly-enrolled students to automatically take the LTK Placement Test.
There is also a Set Beginning Lesson program that provides the ability to start at any of the 87 LTK lessons.

Question
How old should the typical student be?
Answer
All versions of the Language Tune-Up Kit will successfully teach students who are age 6 through adult. We do not
recommend use of LTK by students who are age 5 or younger unless an adult can work with the student to
provide assistance when needed. LTK does not contain any "cartoonish" characters that will sidetrack the
student. Some younger children may seem to need his type of "edu-tainment" to stay focused on computer
software. We do not recommend this approach, as it tends to distract the student from the goal of the exercises
instead of helping them to learn.
