I thought it would be worth mentioning Reading Eggs as some other home educators have recommended this reading program. Owen and Anya’s reading has improved so much by simply been provided the time to pursue their interests that it is now below their level. Anya had a look at Reading Eggs but found it too easy although she seemed to enjoyed playing the games for a while. Personally, I found the program irritating and wouldn't recommend it for older children that are struggling with reading. It is clearly aimed at younger kids with interest levels and age levels matched at school expectation. This is rarely the case with dyslexia, ADD, ADHD and autistic kids. My focus has always been to try and match older interest levels with younger reading levels.
