Product Description

A highly motivating CD-ROM which is perfect for children who are struggling to read using normal methods and the reading schemes available in their school. Particularly effective for children who:

are on the autistic spectrum

have down's syndrome

have attentional difficulties

are primarily visual learners

are learning English as an additional language.

Although your child may know the sounds of letters in isolation, he/she may not necessarily be able to combine them together in a fluent manner and so may be losing comprehension when trying to read. A Busy Day focuses on a whole word approach and is based on vocabulary that is familiar and meaningful. It avoids abstract concepts which may at this point in your child's development be difficult to understand.

This CD-ROM:

helps your child to acquire and recognise words by encouraging them to hear, say, match words to pictures and move the words around on screen. It's a multi-sensory and interactive experience.

helps them construct meaningful sentences and develop their language skills

includes audio support throughout contains full parent/helper guidance including training videos

contains colour-coded word banks with the facility to add your own words

includes printable clip art, worksheets and other resources to use away from the computer

includes a full range of accessibility settings including choices for switch users

includes motivational games to reinforce word recognition

has clear, bright and colourful graphics

Suitable for use with ages 5 to 11, depending on individual need.

The version on sale here is for HOME USE only. If you are looking to buy this resource for a school, please visit the Sherston Shop (type Sherston shop into your internet browser)

Found this excellent for a 4 year old with special needs. He could click into things himself and had a big smile on his face when things happened in response.
