Dyslexia - will LearnThatWord help?

Dyslexia is not "a" learning disability, but rather a collective term for a group of symptoms, which may vary in cause and severity.

We have heard from members who saw great breakthroughs using LearnThatWord, but we have not yet been able to conduct a scientific study. Also, since there are so many forms of dyslexia, we like to stay away from making any claims in this area.

Rather, we'd like you to see for yourself it this helps. If it does, please share your experience with us!

Our suggestion

Please start a free account. If you want to include spelling tutoring and performance reports, please enroll in a monthly plan or invest in a few Pay-Per-Result tokens. Once you see it works for you, you can always upgrade to a long-term plan or buy a larger bundle of tokens.

Focus on consistency in the beginning, not results, and give it a month or two. Ideal would be sessions of 15-25 words every day. You need a minimum of three sessions per week to tell if it works.

If more time lapses between sessions, even a non-dyslexic brain has trouble to remember the words, so scheduling sessions in 1-day or at the most 2-day intervals is absolutely crucial to make this work.

Dyslexics (sometimes also called "dyslectic") often feel very frustrated when working with words. It will take a while for the brain to unlearn its defense mechanisms and realize that at LearnThatWord there are no negative consequences or embarrassment associated with making a mistake.

What we see time after time is that the number of repetitions will soon shrink, and the number of words learned goes up, along with confidence!

Should you have another experience and find that despite regular sessions there is no improvement after a month or two, we will gladly refund your fees. If you're not happy, we're not happy!

What is dyslexia

Experts diagnose and define dyslexia in different ways. The World Federation of Neurologists defines it as "a disorder in children who, despite conventional classroom experience, fail to attain the language skills of reading, writing, and spelling commensurate with their intellectual abilities."

The U.S. National Institutes of Health defines it stronger, as a learning disability that impacts a person's ability to read, write, spell... sometimes even speak. Dyslexia is quite common and because it persists throughout life, there is also a large number of adults who struggle with its challenges.

What to do about dyslexia

Dyslexia can vary from mild to severe. Early intervention, with personalized tutoring will produce the best results; however, it is never too late to improve.

Aside from the learning disability itself, older students over time have experienced a lot of frustration and negative feedback associated with words.

Our brains are wired to avoid anything that causes pain, so this can create another layer of disabling emotions. It's very hard to learn something that we resist, and it's natural to resist something that we experience as painful.

LearnThatWord allows students to work on their skills in complete privacy, and to focus on their personal challenge words.

The program rewards EFFORT, not existing skill or speed of progress. Rewards and prizes acknowledge time on task - the single most important key factor to overcome learning disability.

Commonly, an impairment in the brain's ability to translate images seen (sometimes also sounds heard) into meaningful language causes dyslexia. It's not caused by vision or hearing problems, mental retardation, brain damage, or a lack of intelligence.

Many dyslexic (dyslectic) people are highly intelligent. They simply struggle to communicate!

However, since their disability causes them to struggle with reading and writing, there is a very high risk that they fall behind academically. Even more dramatic is the unfortunate effect that the student often starts to feel self-conscious and insecure. When frustration sets in, self-defeating attitudes and resistance follow in the path.

Some also find that students with dyslexia need longer to store word patterns (Mental Orthographic Images - MOI). They tend to benefit from logic approaches like phonic and spelling rules more than non-dyslexic students, who commonly simply create MOI of what a word looks like.

LearnThatWord provides 100% personalized tutoring, both in vocabulary and spelling. With our program, it doesn't matter if a student needs three or many more repetitions to learn a word, since the program manages the learning cycle until a set of correct responses has been given.

To get such personal support in privacy is often a big relief for dyslexic/dyslectic students, who may have experienced more or less subtle feedback that their individual need for additional review is "too much."
