DYSLEXIA INTERVENTION

PRINCIPLES

DEVELOPED AROUND FIVE BASIC PRINCIPLES

MULTI SENSORY

IDL uses sight, sound, touch, and voice to improve reading and spelling. Links are made between the visual, auditory and tactile pathways.

INDIVIDUALLY TAILORED

IDL automatically generates a starting point for pupils based on their individual reading and spelling ability. The program can also meet individual visual needs – pupils can choose their own page background and text colours to make tracking and place finding easier, helping to combat visual stress.

INDEPENDENT LEARNING

Pupils can work independently, allowing for larger intervention groups. The cloud is used to store pupil progress so they can work from any location - picking up where they left off.

SIMPLE TO USE

IDL has been simply designed to make it easy for pupils and teachers to use. Pupils will be able to work independently or with minimum supervision, whilst teachers will be able to track and monitor progress effortlessly.

DISTRACTION FREE

Some literacy programs include bright, colourful graphics that can be engaging. This can often be a visual distraction for pupils with dyslexia and dyslexic type tendencies, making it difficult for them to identify text.  IDL has been purposefully designed to omit visual distraction, so that pupils can focus solely on letters and words as they appear on screen.

Because IDL adheres to these principles, it achieves BRILLIANT RESULTS. Schools who currently use IDL have reported that pupils’ reading and spelling ages increase on average by around 10 months after just 26 hours of use. They have also noticed improved confidence and self esteem, which has transferred into other areas of school life.
