Why Dyslexia Gold helps pupils catch up

Reading & Spelling

Dyslexia Gold's unique online programs help pupils catch up in reading & spelling.

Perfect for pupils, aged 5 - 16, who need extra help.

Beyond Phonics

Vision problems and poor phonological awareness cause children to struggle to read & spell.

We are the ONLY program to address both these issues.

Easy to Use

Children work independently for 10 minutes a day. The programs are online and no staff training is required.

Clear Reports

Termly reading age tests measure progress and our Dyslexia Screener produces a parent friendly report.

Evidence Based

Reading improves on average by 12 months in a term with 90% of pupils making at least 3 months progress.

What SENCOs are saying about Dyslexia Gold

"The Dyslexia Gold package is the single most important and effective program we run at school”
George Law

Down Hall Primary School
“I have never found another program that replicates what we would do in a specialist 1:1 intervention. This does. It's fun but very targeted.
Kate Bodle

St Mary's School
"Dyslexia Gold is like nothing I have used before and has shown vast improvements with a variety of age groups. With some children the age gap had hugely reduced, one child by 62 months in only two terms. Quite amazing!"
Dawn Hancock

Why do Some Children Struggle To Read?

Some children can't see the letters and words on the page clearly, and they can't hear the individual sounds in words

This is why phonics by itself doesn't work for some children.

Pupils who skip words or lines, reverse letters, or can't remember what they've read, may have a vision problem caused by weak eye muscles. Their eyes don't focus on the same letter, so their brain receives two different images when they read.

They may also have poor phonological awareness, which means they can't hear individual sounds in words. They can't hear that goat contains 3 sounds: g-oa-t.

Dyslexia Gold's Reading Bundle addresses both these issues using fun games. Engaging Eyes, exercises the eye muscles, helping them work together and reduces eye movements. Fluency Builder develops auditory skills so they can hear the sounds in words. Once children can both see the letters and sound out the words, reading improves dramatically.

Our Results

Formal trials found that pupils reading improved by an average of 12 months in a single term. Spelling improved by 10½ months.

90% of pupils made at least 3 months progress, including the very poorest readers.

Dyslexia Gold is used in over 300 schools throughout the UK and is approved by the British Dyslexia Association and Dyslexia Action.
