Kurzweil 3000 is an integrated reading, writing, and study skill support software that enables struggling readers to learn from the same content as their peers.

Students may have difficulty reading for a variety of reasons. Their inability to read fluently at grade level means they are unable to learn from class and curriculum content. For these students, Kurzweil 3000 can be life changing.

Kurzweil 3000 provides multi-sensory access to virtually any text or curriculum, including print, electronic, and web-based material – so students learn from grade appropriate content, develop valuable study skills, and become independent learners.

Unlike other programs that work only with preformatted material, Kurzweil 3000 allows teachers and students the freedom to work with content from any publisher across content areas.

Additionally, Kurzweil 3000 supports the principles of Universal Design for Learning (UDL), enabling multiple means for students of all abilities to engage with digital text.

Moreover, Kurzweil 3000 is used at all tier levels within Response to Intervention (RtI) programs to prevent students’ academic performance from slipping.
