Dyslexia: Strategies for Success - Developing and Consolidating Tracking Skills Through ITCBy deGraft-Hanson, Christine; Closing the Gap, Vol. 25, No. 1, pp. 18-19
Publication Date: April/May 2006
Article discusses how the Track software series from SEMERC can be used to provide literacy education support for students with dyslexia in grades kindergarten through sixth. The series provides instruction in spelling, memorization, the alphabet, visual perception, and reading and writing skills. Each program features multi-sensory instruction within an engaging structure. For example, Eye Track encourages learners to use visual information to recognize, recall, discriminate, and attach meanings to what they see while playing a cops-and-robbers style video game. Phenome Track supports the development of phonological awareness through activities that see students delete or replace phonemes to create new words, while Alphabet Track supports learning the alphabet via rhymes. Spell Track supports a puzzle-style spelling activity, while Word Track allows students to practice syntax, or correct sentence order. Each program contains extra resources, including printable worksheets and clip art. Interested parties are encouraged to visit SEMERC online (http://www.semerc.com) for further information.
