With children’s academic future at stake, we need to team up with experts in reading education and this is when we found AERDF. Advanced Education Research and Development Fund (AERDF) - a pioneer in leveraging the latest research to build inclusive education programs for grades Pre-K-12.

Partnering with AERDF, led by the incredible Claire Galdun (@clairegaldun), Senior Manager of Learning Design, was a total game-changer. With their expertise in crafting cutting-edge educational tools like the Generative Reading Instructor, we're on a mission to create an adaptive learning experience that caters to each child's unique decoding and word recognition abilities. The result? A personalized approach that ensures every child thrives.

But that's not all; AERDF's track record speaks for itself. With successful student intake questionnaires implemented in NYC charter schools, we're leveraging their expertise to tailor our parent/teacher assessment tool. This means that from day one, Yeti Confetti™ Kids™' curriculum is finely tuned to meet each child's needs, setting them up for success from the get-go.

Our partnership with AERDF marks a bold leap forward in educational technology. Together, we're spearheading a reading instruction revolution that not only meets educational standards but also adapts to the unique needs of every learner.

So, what's next? Join us for the final installment as we roll up our sleeves and build our generative AI tool, shaping an inclusive English reading environment for all students.
