Can't get past the initial "test"
Right away, my son was expected to recognize words like "through" & "remember," complete a five-sequence task, & spell words backwards after hearing them in the yeti's accent. Then I realized this was just a placement test to see which areas needed to be worked on. The problem is, after torturing himself to get through it so he could move on to the actual game, he is unable to submit the final answer to complete the test. My son sadly set down his iPad & walked away feeling discouraged & "dumb". $10 app that makes my kid feel worse ...
My 9 year old son loves this app. They have wonderful games to help with his dyslexia. I feel it's really making a difference in helping him learn to read better, without mixing up the letters as much. It's the one "homework app" he begs to play. The only thing missing is a multi-user feature. I'd love a separate log-on for each of my children.
I can't praise this app highly enough. It gives me a good idea of areas that need attention and provides practice in all areas affected by dyslexia. She loves it and it's very appealing in interface. More than worth the price!
