What type of student is this reading program for?

Blast Off to Reading! ® is a reading program for students, ages 7 to 13, who are dyslexic or who simply struggle to read and spell. This is also a wonderful resource for children who have auditory discrimination issues, auditory processing disorder (APD), and other communicative problems.

How does this program work?

This Orton-Gillingham based reading program contains 50 lessons, plus 5 review lessons, which will gradually teach your student to decode and spell words using phonics, rules and memory cues. The lessons gradually build up to the next topic, offering repetition for reinforcement.

This program is laid out in a workbook format, so that you can just open it and teach; it will walk you through step by step. There is no need for training.

The program includes four components: 1) the online flash cards, 2) the online dictations, 3) the workbook, and 4) the online games. All you need to purchase is the book, everything else is included at no extra charge.

A typical lesson:

1) starts with a review using the online flash cards,

2) followed by reviewing the dictations (a spelling activity that you child does independently),


3) followed by the lesson & exercises from the workbook,

4) and then ending with the online or physical phonics games for reinforcement.
The workbook will tell you exactly what game to do.
Note that physical games must be purchased separately.
