I wanted to take a minute and write this review because I looked long and hard for a spelling program for my gifted dyslexic son. My son is a text book case of what the Eide's call "stealth dyslexia." (Check out their book "The Dyslexic Advantage.") He reading comprehension has always been significantly above grade level, but his accuracy and fluency lagged behind. After he was diagnosed at age 9, we remediated intensively for a few weeks at Lindamood Bell, and his reading improved greatly. Now 10 and in the 5th grade (we homeschool), he is reading at an 8th grade level. He is able to decode unfamiliar words, although probably not as well as someone with his gifts who didn't have dyslexia. But by and large, I consider his reading to have been remediated.

However, spelling is a different issue. For stealth dyslexics, writing, spelling and handwriting is often where the weakness shows. Last year, we worked through one of the books of Sequential Spelling, and I was greatly dismayed when I assessed him at the end of the year and nothing from the beginning of the year had stuck. I want about looking for a new spelling curriculum, and many people suggested Megawords.

I purchased the assessment book first to determine his level. I bought it used from Amazon for about $11. I quickly saw that he needed to start in Book 2. I really appreciated that there was a way to assess his level before purchasing. Book 1 indeed would have been redundant and therefore frustrating for him. I plan on selling the assessment book once I am sure I won't need it, so that was money well spent.

I then bought both the student and teacher books for Book 2. Some parents choose not to purchase the teacher book, but I have found it really helpful and I am glad I got it.

Excellent resource for children who have dyslexic type learning issues. Systematically breaks the english spelling rules down piece by piece. Easy to understand. It has helped my dyslexic son with his spelling so much. He no longer just "guesses" at the spellings of words when he is writing, but is able to analyze what sounds he is hearing and apply the knowledge of spelling rules that he has learned. Schools do NOT teach this way....but they'd be helping all those children who "fall through the cracks" so much if they did!

Verified Purchase
I purchased both the 1st and 2nd book in this series. I have found that they are both going to help tremendously with teaching my dyslexic students this year.
