Wordshark uses more than 60 motivating games to teach and reinforce reading and spelling. It is suitable for a wide age range, with its material ranging from simple Consonant-Vowel-Consonant (CVC) words (e.g. cat, hat) through to challenging sets for very able spellers.

The more you read, the easier it becomes. But for those who struggle with words, reading is not always fun, and it's easy to lose heart and stop trying. That's why Dyslexia Action has teamed up with Barrington Stoke to create a book guide designed to give you ideas of books that might appeal to dyslexic and reluctant young readers.
