After identifying signs that your child may be struggling with dyslexia, you can adapt your learning plan to fit their special needs.
There are many well-researched and successful programs on the market today that target dyslexia. Ask a professional about the best approach to take with your child. Does your child require a more hands-on program, or an auditory-based program? Would they benefit from a combination of these techniques?

My kids still remember these 1 year on. These stories and visuals just STAY in their heads. AMAZING PRODUCT for these visual kinds of learners.”
