WH Expert 2 helps kids who have trouble with reading comprehension. The app targets one of the basic building blocks of comprehension: understanding how parts of a sentence combine to add meaning.
WH Expert 2 is targeted to children in Grade 2 and above who can read the words (decode), but don't understand what they read.
- Builds comprehension skills step-by-step until mastery.
- Incremental learning. New levels are unlocked only when your child is ready.
- Can be used independently (just hand it over, your child will know what to do) or with a therapist for reading intervention.
- Guided learning for less frustration. Your child will always arrive at the correct answer.
- Fun and engaging Reward Center to increase motivation.
- Kids love the silly sentences - keeps learning from being boring!
Advanced levels include timers to ensure fluency. Research shows fluency in the foundation skills is critical to reading comprehension.
Detailed reporting for up to 10 students to meet the needs of teachers, therapists and parents.

I like this app and my students love playing it! One great benefit of this app is that it keeps track of each students progress for each time they work at it.
There is one aspect of this app that I don't like and that is that sometimes the sentences do not make much sense which can confuse my students. When that happens I challenge them to rewrite the sentence so that it does make sense but still answers the targeted question.
Needs some tweeks but it is worth the money spent!
WH Expert 2
My first grader was really struggling with the different question words like when, what, how, why and where. This app helped him practice each type in a very systematic approach and there are up to 44 levels. Once he completes the first level , he can go to the next level. His understanding of the question words has improved in just a week. Definitely a must-have app for kids with Grammar issues.
This app is terrific! It tracks my students' progress, the kids think it's great fun and the levels increase in difficulty as they go along, further increasing their skills. The whole series of apps are wonderful!
