I bought this for my 10yr old son - on recommendation of a dyslexic website. It is far too high a level. This is a full dictionary with ridiculous long words that only an English graduate would have come across ie "dificlt" becomes diaphysical! More importantly it doesn't seem to recognise his phonetic spelling. Also Hangman (which he was enjoying playing) gave the word fiber! I couldn't even find it in the dictionary myself (except as alternative to gyber or American fibre) - far too complicated. There is clearly a gap here between the really basic children's version, and the full on crossword completing adult. Example "color" - first suggestion is couloir!
