Improvements in Reading
In formal trials, children (aged 7-11) who were at least a year behind, improved their reading by 12 months in less than 10 hours of playing Dyslexia Gold.
They played Dyslexia Gold for 10 minutes a day, for 3 months, and on average their reading age increased by a year.
But one of the most exciting things was how well it worked for the very weakest pupils.
Improvement in reading speed
after playing for 3 months
Victoria was 10 years old, but had a reading age of only 5y 4m.
She made 17 months progress in 3 months.
Improvements in Spelling
In formal trials pupils improved their spelling age by an average of 10.5 months.
Primary pupils made 13 months progress after playing Spelling Tutor, for 10 minutes a day, for a term.
The children, and their teachers, noticed how much their spelling had improved in their everyday writing, not just in tests.
Secondary students made on average 9 months improvement, which is incredible for secondary aged pupils.
It was great to see their confidence in their own spelling grow in daily written work. At the end of the term the average increase in their spelling ages was 16 months!
