I stumbled upon Dyslexia Games online one day and was so excited about what I had found! We immediately contacted them and they sent us a great sample of their products! I have one daughter with some learning challenges, and another daughter who is dyslexic. I spent hours pouring over the samples and knew that these products would be an awesome fit for both of them!
About Dyslexia Games:
Dyslexia Games was invented several years ago by Sarah Janisse Brown, a Creative Learning Specialist, who also home educates her children. When Josh and Sarah found out that their 8 year old daughter, Anna, had Dyslexia, they began their search for answers and solutions.
Sarah was amazed and puzzled by the way Anna, like most dyslexic children, could create detailed works of art and yet still struggle with simple reading tasks. Sarah was determined to find out why such brilliant kids couldn’t learn to read. She believed that the key to teaching them to read correctly was hidden somewhere in their brilliant and creative minds. Sarah began creating art and puzzle games to trick Anna into learning to read, and Dyslexia Games was invented. Dyslexic kids would much rather learn through art and games than through phonics and sight words!
When I read the above description I couldn’t believe how well this described both of my daughters. They would much rather draw and color and play then do academics. I was excited to find something that was “academic” but didn’t look like it!
These are the books we received in our package:
Life, Love & Dyslexia: Sarah’s Journal – this is an awesome biography about dyslexia and the creative mind!
Dyslexia Games – Art And Spell – Series A Book 4 (Dyslexia Games Series A) (Volume 4) – my 8 yo struggles with spelling and writing and hates anything that seems like school. As soon as she saw this book she wanted to start using it!
Dyslexia Games – Animal Talk – Series B Book 6 (Dyslexia Games Series B) (Volume 6) – my 10 yo who is dyslexic has always loved animals. I have always had to find education animal related activities and books for her to do school with. This is the perfect fit for her.
