|Wordswork, an inter-active CD-ROM for adult dyslexic students, has been devised by adult dyslexia specialist Ellen Morgan, coordinator of the Dyslexia Support Service at the City University, London.
Based on her teaching techniques and drawing on tried and tested strategies, Wordswork uses a multi-sensory approach with text and voiceover, graphics, sound effects, colour and humour to develop skills for successful learning.
Product Code - 12516
Using a "learning style" approach, students are encouraged to identify and utilise their strengths to overcome areas of weakness.
The program includes many exercises to involve users in interactive learning. The wide attraction of the program results from the sophisticated, yet amusing, approaches used.
The program is not intended to teach basic reading skills, but all printed screens are accompanied by 'voiceovers', reducing the need for excessive reading. Aimed primarily at dyslexic undergraduates, Wordswork will also appeal to students in upper secondary, tertiary and further education.
In addition, dyslexic adults wanting to improve skills before embarking on formal study will benefit from this program.
