We created Readability Matters out of a shared passion to shift reading outcomes for adults and children, making them the best readers they can be. Better readers are more confident and have more educational, career, and life opportunities.

Our goal is to shift the reading paradigm to user-selected formats that increase performance. We drive change by convening players in the reading ecosystem to implement needed advances. We want to share what we know and learn with you. Readability Matters values innovation, collaboration, rigorous analysis, and evidence-based decision-making.

When we invest in raising individual reading performance, everyone benefits.
