Help close the literacy gap.


Between 3rd and 4th grade, a child transitions from learning to read, to reading to learn.  Without the strong foundation of basic literacy skills, a child falls further and further behind.


More than 60% of American 4th graders are not proficient readers.


75% of children who read poorly at age 9 will struggle to read for the rest of their lives.


85% of children in the juvenile court system are not literate.


Literacy: An Essential Building Block

Students who do not read proficiently by the end of 3rd grade are 4x more likely to leave school without a diploma. Struggling readers are disproportionately low-income students and students of color, and both the literacy and achievement gaps are vast.


Mighty Doodle™ Learning Program

Based on the evidence-based Orton Gillingham approach, the Literacy Matters Foundation Learning Program – Mighty Doodle™ – uses leading-edge technology to provide engaging, child-friendly literacy instruction in a gamified lesson format delivered on an iPad. The majority of students made significant gains during the school year, with many demonstrating 4x greater progress on national standardized tests.
