What SENCOs are saying about Dyslexia Gold
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.
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.
