Neuroscience Research

Square Panda is based on the latest research on reading and the developing brain.

Research Findings*

Multisensory perception supports optimal learning.

Square Panda combines letters with sounds in a tactile environment, turning tablets into phonics learning stations that leverage sight, sound, AND touch.

Struggling learners benefit from multisensory cues.

Square Panda’s multisensory approach can advance low-performing children’s foundational skills while helping other learners progress through exploratory play.

High-poverty kids benefit the most.

Square Panda supports children at home and in school—developing early reading skills with an eye to long-term challenges such as high school success.

Second-language learners need additional reading support.

Square Panda serves as a foundational crosswalk between English and a child’s native language, as learners build their understanding of key phonics principles.

Early phonics instruction has the greatest impact.

Square Panda advances phonological awareness, rhyming, blending, segmentation, letter-sound associations, decoding, encoding, and more.

Square Panda partners with Dr. Bruce McCandliss, neuroscience researcher at Stanford University, and follows the guidelines of the National Reading and National Literacy Panels.
