Joy is a mom whose 13 year old son has Autism and Prader-Willi Syndrome. After discovering Reading Kingdom, he began using the program to boost his literacy skills. Here’s what Joy has to say about our well-rounded approach:
The really cool thing about Reading Kingdom is that it goes way beyond just reading. It includes spelling and typing! With my son having Prader-Willi Syndrome he has problems with an extremely short attention span and short-term auditory memory. He is very distracted by everything around him including a car driving down the street….and forget it if anyone is outside mowing…he cannot work. Yet he has an unusually good long-term memory. (a whole lot better than mine!) The program uses a LOT of repetition and presenting the words in different forms and in different ways. I believe this is why the program has worked so well for my son! They hear the word, they type the word and then they read it in a sentence. I can honestly say my son has made the most progress in his reading and spelling since using Reading Kingdom the last year.
I HIGHLY recommend this program to other parents, especially other families that have a child with a disability. I think this would also work well for children who have autism. (my son has both autism and PWS) It would even be beneficial for families that do not homeschool as the sessions take less than a half hour.
While the Reading Kingdom has been designed for children with typical abilities, children with learning disabilities can definitely benefit from it. Sign up for a free 30 day trial and see how we can help your child learn to read. Lingo and company will see you soon!
