This site developed by Moms of Dyslexics provides a set of apps that can support dyslexics and struggling readers. As a Mom of an adult dyslexic, I want to thank these Moms who have created this site for families that have a child with dyslexia.

 

Here are the apps they have reviewed on this site:

> Sound Literacy-$24.99 Sound Literacy can be used in conjunction with any curriculum that emphasizes phonemic awareness, phonological processing, systematic phonetic instruction, or word building with ‘meaningful word parts’.

 

> Dyslexia Quest- $1.99: The Yeti Master will take your child on an adventure while testing working memory, processing speed, visual memory, phonological awareness, auditory memory, and sequencing skills.

 

> Montessori Crosswords-$2.99: Highly rated and based on Montessori learning methods, this app will aid in the development of reading and spelling skills through phonemic awareness.

 

> Spell Trekking-Free:  Your child will learn to spell while trekking through space on the S.S. Spell Trek.

 

> Letter Quiz-Free and Full Version-$1.99: Consists of four games to help your child learn letter recognition and writing practice.

 

> Dyslexic Like Me-$1.99:  The purpose of Dyslexic Like Me is to teach the child what dyslexia is and about successful people who also have dyslexia.

 

> See Read Say-$1.99:  The visual nature of a dyslexic can make learning sight words difficult.

 

> Phonics Genius-Free:  Phonetic awareness is essential to reading and this app takes it to a new level.  The app contains thousands of words grouped into 225 phonic categories.

Some apps for students struggling with reading or learning differences.

Harnessing the inbuilt accessibility in mobile devices such as the iPad with well designed apps is very empowering.

The bottom line re: paper vs. digital reading for educators?

 

Our preferences are irrelevant. Our students' preferences and needs are supremely relevant.

Nic w tym dziwnego. Guru copywritingu już dawno temu zbadali, że tekst w wąskiej kolumnie jest znacznie czytelniejszy niż w szerokiej (przy okazji jest bardziej motywujący do czytania, bo sprawia wrażenie krótszego).
Do tego dochodzi wielkość czcionki, odpowiedni kontrast między tłem a czcionką oraz częstsze podziały na akapity.

Formatowanie typowej książki może i pomaga utrzymaś koszty druku w ryzach, ale na pewno nie sprzyja czytelnictwu.

Dobrze, że wychodzimy z ery książek drukowanych. Czytanie na e-czytnikach może być znacznie szybsze, gdy połączy się dobre praktyki copywritingu z technikami szybkiego czytania.
