Read Naturally has lots of times when a teacher or adult need to be present to check the student out on the reading and questions. There is a game the students can play while they wait for the teacher or "teacher" to be present, but you wouldn't want them waiting in that place in the program for long.
We use it in my building as a reading intervention. A para-educator supervises groups of up to 4 students while they use the program.
The results we've seen have been mixed in terms of increases in fluency. But I do like it as an intervention when we need to have an uncertificated person working with the students. And since our school is Title I and high ESL population, the nonfiction texts help them learn about some topics they aren't familiar with, and it also gives them a chance to practice answering multiple choice and matching questions for test taking strategies.
