It uses the Dyslexie Font to make reading and learning easy for students with dyslexia.

Touch Typing Program

Dyslexia - Touch Typing Program for KidsFor many young dyslexic students, touch typing helps retain other skills like reading, spelling, and vocabulary.

All students, including ones dealing with dyslexia, who learn touch typing at an early age perform better on tests that involve these skills. Help children improve their reading and spelling skills with this multi-sensory course that teaches touch-typing. The Touch Type Read and Spell Program can be used as a standalone touch-typing course and is especially useful for those with dyslexia and other learning difficulties.

Fluency Practice

Dyslexia Fluency Bundle

Because dyslexic children use so much of their brain power attempting to decode words on a page, it is even more difficult for students with this learning disability to achieve reading fluency. Fluency develops over time, after hours of practicing how to read a word, and then read it fluently.

Parents can provide kids with more fluency practice at home This fluency practice packet includes 7 themes and 44 weekly fluency practice cards to help children master both comprehension and fluency.

 

Times Tales

Fun stories and different visuals can be very helpful to children with dyslexia trying to learn something new, such as multiplication tables.

Times Tales is a great example of a program that uses both stories and visuals to make learning the upper times tables easy and fun for kids. The video’s cute, simple stories provide students with a “memory peg,” allowing them to quickly recall otherwise abstract multiplication facts. Here’s what one parent had to say about the program: “I used this as a parent and as a teacher for kids in my class who were dyslexic or who had dyscalculia and they all mastered their times tables in a way that they had never done before in a very quick way. 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.”
