The program will constantly assess a child’s reading skills and reports are generated and emailed to the teacher each week. These will then provide the basis for specific teaching groups in the classroom.


The program was designed specifically for dyslexic children but we feel that it has a lot to offer any child who needs a little extra assistance with their reading and spelling strategies.


Children from Grade 2-4 are selected by teachers for inclusion on this program and notes are sent home notifying parents. Selected students participate in three or four supervised sessions of the program each week during class time.
